Applying to Deloitte as a Senior Consultant with a little over a year of experience - is this a reach? What is the typical experience level for a consultant & senior consultant?

Yes definitely a reach. Anyone with one year experience I’ve seen comes in as Analyst.

I see I see—so go ahead and apply as SC; Deloitte will be quick to realign you as a C if that’s what they feel like. You just don’t want applying as a C to mean you wind up as an A so might as well go for SC 🤷🏻‍♀️

Continued- I am a senior consultant at my current company (early promotion due to high performance). Would I be better off applying as a consultant level?

The typical experience level is ~2 years as analyst and ~2 years as consultant to get to SC so it’s not really a junior role. SCs are expected to manage large workstreams and be able to manage entire projects in some cases (e.g., some projects are staffed with a Senior Manager providing guidance and a SC running the show). SCs are really treated as assistant managers and have people management responsibilities in many cases for more junior staff on the project.

Keep in mind if you’re applying to advisory that would certainly be within reach (no analyst level). HR will level you no matter what

I recently asked a recruited from Deloitte that I’ve been talking to this exact question. He said when hiring externally they typically look for 4-5 years experience for SC. Currently a SC at ey, but with just over two years. He said they don’t typically put too much stock in titles at your current company

All I need is a chance to show I can do it. I have an excellent track record.
