Came up short again🥹🥹🥹

I’ve been applying to consulting firms including B4 over the past year. Every single (10+) interview was successful at first stage but not at partner/director level. While I believe they all go well, I’m not able to land an offer.

Can anyone provide guidance, especially those that have required sponsorship? I’m open to suggestions on how to succeed

What official feedback are you getting?

If I had to guess I am betting you’re making it through the first round because of your technical or functional skills but not making it through the second because of your communication skills or reasoning.

OP, it gets easier without sponsorship. Assuming you have less than 5 YOE? That 5 YOE matters if you are coming in from a non-consulting background. Visa sponsorship is also an extra step in the process that most employers won't bother dealing with if they have candidates that are borderline the same. Stay patient and keep trying! You will get there eventually 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

In my experience, the partner level interviews lean more towards fit. Either you fumbled every time or it’s something out of your control. Did you get any feedback from any of the interviews?

I went in-house 3 years ago. At the time, I was interviewing with 2 companies. One company was a much better cultural fit for me and I was 1 of 2 finalists. But they chose the other applicant.

Reach out to the GC directly to show interest? Is it worth moving from a comfy job just bc I think the culture will be better?

The question is, is graduation from law school, not minimum competency? With this line of reasoning we are saying that law schools do not produce competent future lawyers, so should we instead switch to a system of taking the bar without the three years of a measure that frankly bar associations have deemed not an adequate measure? Dash this comment aside if it is fallible, but there is something here that has been overlooked. Competence is not regurgitation and memorization.

Option 3: Stay back at EY, look to make SM in Oct 2023. Take the hike/correction this yr. Been wth the firm 5 yrs
