2018 i was laid off, took a salary and title cut, only got a 1% bonus from Accenture, final round and rejected by BCG, and today McKinsey Digital. Any words of hope? Thinking of leaving consulting.

Tbh that’s an awesome example of this community. Good luck OP! Went through a rough time pre BCG and I never forget how quickly it could be taken away 🙏🏻

No need to vouch for referral; plus it can turn out they become friends. Leave no stone unturned to help others. You will be compensated in the future.

My post seeking encouragement was hi-jacked by another consultant trying to find a job with a louder voice ha. How fitting.

Can’t say I understand asking for / willing to give referrals to strangers on fb. Isn’t the point of a referral that you know somebody and are personally vouching for them?

That wasn’t my intention with my post. I just feel dejected and was looking for advice. Somehow the post was turned into a referral request for people.

If you screen the person before hand and get a referral bonus sounds like a fair action to me

I am a bit surprised to hear PWC laying people off right before the holiday. They really couldn’t wait until the new year? That is really shocking to me... There should be a general rule to just not “let go” of employees until at least the second week of the new year.

I’m sorry OP! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Seemed like the right post to ask those questions

Interesting you made it to final rounds, and then rejection. You must be doing something right. Did they provide specific feedback why you didn’t land after the final? Were they just more difficult cases, or experience discussions? Perhaps you were more nervous w/ the more senior interviewers.
