Hey everyone,

I've worked for 5 years in Operations and received my MBA during that time. I'm trying to pivot into consulting but can't seem to get any interviews. I feel like I'm simultaneously overqualified for intro positions (even though I'd happily take one) and under qualified for anything else. Any feedback on how to break out of the funk?

Any suggestions for breaking into the financial industry in the US? Currently based in Europe, been in banking for three and half years in a front-office role and about to finish an executive program in International finance. Moving to an upper tier bank in February and was planning to do an MBA in the US and get a job there in two-three years. I just turned 26 but not sure if moving up the ladder and then ask for a transfer there will be the quickest move. Any thoughts?

I have a few questions for people in consulting roles (both external/internal).

My partner is in corporate banking, but he wants to switch to a consulting/strategy-based role. I noticed people with those jobs typically have an MBA, and also majority of the job ads in similar roles has MBA as either a requirement or preferred qualification. So:

1) does MBA actually improve someone's chance in getting those roles?
2) are there any good Canadian MBA programs you'd recommend?

Thank you all!
