Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.

I have zero social life and covid is making it worse. Even if most of my free time wasn’t sucked up by the firm, I’m still not sure I’d have much of one. I struggle with making friends and I’m not very extroverted. But I’m over thirty now, still single, and really starting to feel lonely.
How long will a law firm hold out a lateral offer for? And what excuse could I give to extend the wait time without looking like I’m not that interested in the job?

Are you or have you been the sole HR person at the company? What are the pros & cons? I haven’t been, but a recruiter reached out with an opportunity to be one. They currently use the parent company’s HR but are buying themselves out to be a stand alone firm. TIA!
