Would love to speak with anyone who made an exit from consulting shortly after reaching M. How did you think about the following? 1. What functional roles will you actually be good fit for? How does one really know? My resume of case work just confuses me tbh 2. What level should you / did you shoot for? Is AD a realistic goal? 3. What platform did you use to search for jobs? LinkedIn? 3. How did you shortlist your set of target companies? 4. How did you ultimately land the "right" job?

Attention Woke White People: Don’t be this woke white person. Laid off in April. Asked my ACD for final comps of my work for my portfolio. She told me it hadn’t gone public but to check back. I hit her up in May. Nothing. I hit her up in June. Nothing. I hit her up in August. Ignored...ignored...ignored in three separate texts. Finally emailed and mentioned reaching out to the C-level executives and like magic, boom! I get the work in 20 minutes flat. Don’t post BLM stuff if you’re a d*ck.

I’m curious if those at Accenture like their jobs, what the work/life balance is, and how likely it is i’ll get pigeonholed there TIA!
