Consulting

Does a promo to Senior Consultant really help with exit opps to other consulting firms?

you might think so, but actually, they prefer people who are less capable and experienced. people love when lateral hires come in asking “what is a VLOOKUP?” and “what deck? he likes to play cards?” they relish the opportunity to mentor such fresh and endearing candidates, and think nothing of the idea that promotion might indicate a track record of success.

I left one B4 and joined another B4 as an SC. Since becoming an SC, I’ve been approached by other companies for Senior, Manager, and Director level positions. Your mileage may vary but it’s been good in my book.

Exit ops from our firm generally aren’t the greatest on average.

Finding that I can't think of ideas/responses as quickly as before. And also sometimes what I say doesn't come out to make much sense. Not sure if this is the result of overthinking or something else.
