Can any current consultants shed light on how referral processes work for internship positions, if there are referrals at all?

Some firms offer it but most don't AFAIK, you'll have to check. Internship referrals are not the norm

The only ones that has any inkling of working is if you are connected to a Senior Partner (like your dad is a long time client)

Definitely. Thanks Mck1!

Thanks for all the input! Sounds like the best route to take is just a cold apply online in that case, or is it still worthwhile to ask someone if they would be open to pushing my resume?

That makes sense, thanks for the help M1!

Recruiters are more efficient than referrals. Recruiter gets you an interview within days while referrals take a week or 2. But you have to start early and build the relationship

If you intend to apply to an internship position, make sure to attend info sessions and university- recruitment related events. Get to know the recruiters, ask questions, and add them on LinkedIn. Campus recruiters receive so many applications. If they recognize your name, it will increase your odds of getting an interview

Any advice, if they really wanted me would they be offering a decent uplift?

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB.

What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
