Didn’t get an offer after interviewing at BCG. What’s next? Any suggestions? Feeling kind of aimless but still want to leave ACN

Don’t think it’s worth trying again in 12 months? Cases were surprisingly easy, just couldn’t calm nerves the day of. Loved BCG culture FWIW

I’m gonna cry. In consulting I’m told I’m too geeky and have poor soft skills. I just interviewed at a tech firm and they said I have perfect soft skills but I’m lagging on my tech. Who am I anymore?!

Does networking/client-facing energize or drain you? Share your thoughts. For me personally it’s the best part of my job (I find company politics draining, not human interactions tho tbh). Which is interesting because I’m an ambivert (not full-on extrovert). Was at non client-facing job prior to consulting and it felt so dry.

Deloitte ladies. It’s my first green light this Friday... kinda nervous. What should I expect? How does it usually go? Does your coach let you know how much your compensation increases by during the discussion or when do you find that out? Sorry for posting here but the main Deloitte bowl is hostile sometimes.

Anybody else receive an offer from UBS for internal consulting? I’m in the negotiations phase and want to know what the bands are they’re not telling me yet. My offer is for the Nashville team but even the Weehawken numbers help me some. TIA. The geographical discrepancy in comp between the two so far from what I gather is surprising and is much more than the delta for a “tier 1” vs “tier 3” city at my current firm. Feel free to DM me if you don’t feel comfortable leaving it in comments. TIA
