Booz Allen is always hiring. Given the sheer amount of defense contracts, they love vets, too. I'm not high up the ranks, so I can't help with the process. I can submit his resume through the referrals if he has certain positions in mind.

What school?

Can't help as in I can't make hiring decisions, but I can do referrals.

Vet + MBA would be a Booz Allen shoe in! Networking with a principal/ senior associate is by far the easiest way in. He should look up any senior associates and principals that might have gone to his undergrad or business school and get a referral from them! It carries a lot more weight then from an SC

All the Big 4s are in need of actg and finance minded folks with the DoD audits starting up. I hear EY is building a 300 person audit team for one of the departments. That doesn't even include the other forces or the consulting needed to move them away from disclaimers. MBA with military experience is a shoe in for senior at any of them.

Anyone help out with a referral to any of those places? Booz or big 4? He went to Kelley

Kelley! I am also an IU person. I don't currently have a burner but will make one later and post it

Thanks. Just email mine on the top please 🙌
