Note on this - many Lenovos have a flipped fn / control key layout compared to other brands (dell, HP, etc). If you don’t have an external keyboard you plan to use it might take some adjustment time to get comfortable again when modeling.

Seeing the post-MBA thread earlier, thought I’d do one for pre-mba doing MBB as a way into tech

I’m lateraling into mbb after a niche ops role in finance. My end goal is a tech business role. My reasoning for not going into tech directly:

1. Unclear where good entry points are into roles like bizops and product marketing.

2. Many of the “entry level” roles (including programs like google apmm) have a preference for consulting candidates

3. Too early to use bschool to switch


How different is tax consulting to regular tax jobs in PA? I’m an A2 that found a job opening with a Big 4 firm in a dream location, and it’s an advisory position for exactly the kind of taxes I do. Would I be over my head to transition to advisory from regular tax?
