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.

HR professionals- are you requiring a negative test before any employees return to work after COVID? Some had very mild symptoms and one was asymptomatic. I’ve read not to push for a Dr.’s note and some people can still be positive yet not contagious. Right now I’m following the cdc guidelines of 10 days from first symptom, fever free for 24 hrs and improvement of symptoms.
