Understand that BCG is pretty actively hiring, but haven’t heard much about the others

I would imagine we would. I just think it’s relatively rare for someone to seek it out at the manager level. I would also imagine personal referral is best path.

Thanks. Yeah, not an ideal time to switch career-wise, but interested in finding a firm with more work near where I want to live and seems like it only gets harder to switch from here

didn't pass the loop for an L7 role earlier this month, and i found a good suitable l6 role. One of the interviewers added me on linkedin a few weeks back- is it inappropriate if i reach out to him to say thanks and ask him to put in a word for me with hiring manager for the l6 role?
i don't know y i was not selected, and i think its still worth it to reach out. 1 because i think i did well in the interviews and 2 its saves both of us time - to know if i should pursue further or not. Thoughts?
