You can also learn more about our Women@Bain initiative, which supports our female Bainies in their professional development.

The motto of the evening is to discover the culinary side of Paris. What exactly is waiting for you? Let yourself be surprised!

In a relaxed atmosphere, you will learn more about the diverse career paths and success stories of our consultants, ask your individual questions and expand your network.

We have a suitable offer for day 2 for all morning athletes. After the optional work-out and a refreshment break, an exciting virtual training session on the topic "Recognize your unique strengths!" awaits you. You will learn from our trainer how you can stand out positively and individually and how you can position yourself strongly as a young professional. You will also receive valuable tips for appearing self-confident. Make yourself aware of what skills you have and what potential you have! At the end of our journey together, we will review the time and answer any remaining questions.

You will receive access data for our virtual trip and the exact agenda after the application deadline with the invitation to the online event.

event team

Mareike Steingroever

My name is Mareike and I joined Bain as an Associate Consultant 19 years ago. I am now a partner and mainly advise clients in the financial services sector with a focus on strategic realignment. I've been working part-time for 8 years, which gives me the opportunity to balance my career with family life - this is what makes Bain unique to me. Working for us is clearly characterized by two things. Great colleagues who always challenge you, with whom you can laugh and achieve results in the shortest possible time. And the cooperation with our customers, with whom we change things together. 

Anju Yu

I'm Anju and I've been with Bain for over 4 years. Since I started as an Associate Consultant, I have had the opportunity to get to know a wide variety of industries (from ice cream to life insurance) and to support clients with projects in the field of digital and brand strategy, among other things. As part of my 2-year educational leave, I wrote my dissertation at the University of Regensburg. Why did I come to Bain? I met Bain during my studies at a lecture at the university and immediately liked the Bainies. This impression was confirmed during the internship, so I decided to join Bain on a permanent basis and have not regretted this step to this day.

Jasmine Seitz

I am Jasmin and joined Bain as an Associate Consultant at the end of 2016. I mainly support customers on digital topics - I have already worked in the areas of financial services, consumer goods and telecommunications and accompanied many digital transformations. I am currently on my PhD leave and doing my doctorate on digital innovations at the University of Regensburg. What makes working at Bain special for me? The atmosphere in the office and the spirit of the Bainies. I especially like coming to our office on Fridays to exchange ideas with colleagues and to go to Bain Happy Hour together after work. In my free time I like to travel - preferably in Vietnam and Australia.

Lilli Probst

I'm Lilli and I joined Bain as a consultant over 4 years ago. I support clients in the healthcare and health insurance sector. After the birth of my daughter, I am currently on parental leave, but I use the opportunity to flexibly support recruiting 1-2 days a month. Before joining Bain, I studied medicine and economics and received my doctorate in medicine. Back then, I decided to go into consulting because I wanted to have a comprehensive perspective on all players in the healthcare sector. What makes Bain unique to me? The opportunity to be close to the latest trends and to be able to accompany companies in major transformations. Together with fascinating people on both the Bain and customer side.

Bettina Fussbroich

I'm Bettina and I've been with Bain for over 7 years. After studying biology at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and completing my doctorate at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, I started as a consultant. I mainly supported customers in the areas of consumer goods and financial services - primarily in organizational and IT projects. I am currently a team leader in recruiting with a focus on experienced hiring. What makes working at Bain special for me? The opportunity to work with exciting people every day and to learn from each other. I also appreciate the unique flexibility of project work and the exciting variety of topics at Bain.

Nadine Garisch

My name is Nadine and I joined Bain in recruiting in autumn 2018 after my internship. Within recruiting, I oversee the selection process for young professionals - be it directly after university, a doctorate or after initial professional experience. In addition, I accompany our numerous recruiting activities throughout Germany and Europe. What makes working at Bain special for me? The diverse tasks and a great team spirit, which can be felt every day at all levels. In my free time, I like to go on culinary tours of Munich with friends and am always on the lookout for good tapas bars, as Madrid has become my second hometown.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them personally.
