I applied online, interviewed, accepted an offer

Getting in was straightforward. Referral, interview rounds, then offer. If you're joining as an experienced industry hire, make sure to spend sufficient time prepping for the case interviews. Good luck!

Thank you! This is helpful. Found a role being promoted at BCG that fits my background well (Project Lead/Principal level) but do not have a referral. Do you think it’s worth applying online without one? I believe it is but realistically not expecting much to come from it.

Referral would be key, it probably was the difference between getting a call and getting filtered out by the bot

A few at Mck, not BCG that I’m aware of. Probably worth checking 2nd connections on LI and the networking events. Thanks for the advice!

I applied without referral and got in (NAMR office). Happy to help with the process if it helps - feel free to dm!

What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

Have any of you approached your employer for reimbursement for being asked to use your phone at work? Specifically things like texting your boss while they are in court? I started a new job and am trying to set boundaries but this is one that I cannot set as it is standard practice. In our state, an employer must reimburse you if they direct you to use your personal phone for work. It seems petty, but I’m trying to (rightfully) cash in on something that I would rather not have to do.
