Any tips how to join MBB as experienced hire?

Where are you based, OP? We are hiring! Tenure and expertise matter... if not super senior you may be offered a role down. That’s usually helpful though as the learning curve is steep and we are Up or Out

@OP - You’ll be expected to live proximate to your office for at least the first ~18 months... you’ll want to figure out if we are an acceptable distance from you. (We have an office in Dallas and one in Houston.) @Rest - we have been sold out in North America for most of the year so all recruiting processes are acting a bit off-cycle. EH tends to be more flexible on timing anyway. Also - It helps to have a referral but is certainly not necessary!

D1 it’s not a joke? MBBD is real. Why aren’t you applying to top PE shops? MBB would be a serious step back especially given your bonus this year!

EH recruiting isn’t necessarily on a cycle like campus recruiting so opportunities are available. Also depends on market / office who’s looking for and can take on the capacity. Highly recommend checking out the LinkedIn page. Many offices are hosting EH informational events to network and ask questions and get in on the action. It’s been a big push in recent months.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Is it worth spending to automate this via tools like Looker, Adverity, Improvado, Datorama, Alight Analytics, etc.?
