Undergrad intern here. Anyone know how strict MBB is with their GPA cutoff and if it’s possible to network my way to an interview if I’m at the lower end of that cutoff.

What advice should I give someone who wants to make a career change from marketing/strategy into copywriting? Is it likely they can break into an agency without doing the whole process of portfolio school, making a book, and applying as an intern/junior?

Are all job offers from business schools coming through the internship the year prior? Is any body just straight up applying for full time roles? Just wondering what your job opportunities are like if you didn’t enjoy your internship, didn’t take part in one for whatever reason, or are in PT program. For example, do MBB/Accenture/B4 interview people that didn’t intern for them?

Good? Interviewing for CD gig at “name” shop. Bad? Potential ECD “boss” has been in biz for half my years & CD partner was an intern when I was 15 yrs in. Book = FAR better than both. Just suck it up?
