Currently a senior audit associate at a Big Four. 4 YOE primarily in the Federal Government (DoD) and business process improvement. What are my chances of even being selected for an interview at a MBB in the Washington DC area? Mainly looking at McKinsey.

Target school?

Non-target

I don’t think I’ve even seen an audit person jump to MBB in a client facing role. I’d say your chances are 1-2% to get a screening call, maybe higher for back office

Can you transition from back office to client facing role?

Had my final round interview 3 weeks ago and provided my HC packet to my recruiter last Tuesday. As of yesterday, the recruiter still has a few “admin tasks” they need to complete before I can even go to HC. Losing hope…..

Re-watching the Javy Baez walkoff last night against the Reds and absolutely loved the fire/smack talking in a series where there’s historical bad blood between the two.

We joke about it through avenues like social media but has anyone actually first-hand experienced a competitive/hateful side to work that they didn’t know existed? (Like when a client is poached or business won from a competitor).
