DM me

I cannot DM as I am fairly new to FishBowl.

What about ACT/SAT/GMAT?

ACT, GMAT, and SAT literally don’t matter on a job application.. High GPA, a Masters degree, a reputable college, being a college athlete, or having specific experience in the area you want to go into for consulting is basically all that matters…

ACT - 28

That's interesting to know. In the recruiting emails they send out, they list ACT/SAT as a required component.

Looking to gain work experience before looking into grad school as far as the GMAT score question goes.

Please feel free to connect on LinkedIn - http://linkedin.com/in/jacklipson

Happy to refer to Accenture. DM me

^ I cannot DM. I guess there’s a minimum likes on a post one has to meet to DM. If you can, please DM me!

Got it, thanks for the clarification.

Went to App, worked in supply chain. Now in consulting. Feel free to DM me when you can. Happy to help. RIP my beloved Coltrane.

@deloitte 2 - wow,small world. Feel free to connect on LinkedIn which is linked above in the comments. Very interested in your career path and where you are located!

I live in Boone and have a good buddy who’s an ASU baseball alum. Happy to grab coffee. Just pinged you on LI. And I work in consulting, heavily with our supply chain team, small world.

Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+?
