What is your academic background and what experience do you have in consulting?

What are your skills? Are you only looking at strat roles? In my experience strat tends to have a direct pipeline from IB/strat consulting. If you're not that background it'll be challenging to break into it.

I need help: In consulting interviews, is it a death sentence to have been part of the COVID-related layoffs at a Big 4 strategy arm? I have now been rejected from two other T2 strategy firms, and apparently the feedback is that “I have great experience” but they “are not moving forward with my candidacy”. I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?
