Anyone here gone from big 4 to MBA to MBB? Any tips? Planning on recruiting for summer internships in the fall but heard “interesting” work experience (I.e., blue chip, IB, engineering) is what gets you an interview, while I have very “uninteresting” work experience coming from big 4. Any insights are much appreciated!!

People go from b4 to MBB without MBAs, you should be able to handle it

Hmm MBB recruiting is supposed to be pretty tough with the vast majority of people who recruit for it not getting it

There’s not much you can do now. You’re already planning for summer internships. So just be confident and make sure you know your story well.

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
