Don’t look bad. Pretty much all large firms will say as long as it’s well kept and clean.

FHB puts out a lookbook every year of 12 approved facial hair styles. Currently sporting #7 but thinking of filing a petition to jazz it up to #2 even though that's usually reserved for Principals and above 🤔

I almost always have facial hair. Always neatly-kept, but I've never had an issue with it (except one instance where it was a safety hazard)

Yep. Imposed by facial hair nazis .

Strict measurements on facial hair must be adhered to.

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?

See a lot of comp posts from consultants - have any of you considered enterprise technology sales? Certainly a different job that requires different knowledge/skills but I see parallels/ think a consultant could do well in sales if they’re okay with a lot of rejection.
