McKinsey socials with the hottest sororities, Bain and BCG get the tier 1 leftover girls, followed by LEK, ZS and big 4 strategy with T2 sluts. Who knows what Accenture is up to

I see us more as the nerdy girl everyone ignores, but a few years later is the hot supermodel everyone regrets passing on

Yeah, just like Deloitte has the best exit ops of the Ivy League.

Insert what

Yes and no. For traditional exits to large F500 : big tech (Corp strat) you will have the same chance across the big 3. For more niche exits , PM / series D roles / international , given the much larger alum base and the much wider pool of project / industry types at McK, there are more networking opportunities. However, the perception of capabilities across all these three firms (and others) is generally the same

McKinsey as the largest MBB McKinsey has the largest alumni network in MBB so I would say it's marginally easier since you might have the finest of edges over Bain/BCG by having the alumni connection. That said, being a firm alumni is a talking point in an interview but your profile isn't viewed dramatically better than somebody at a BB.

Will it hurt me in the long run to have comms experience in different industries? My agency is hiring and I'm watching folks at all levels who would otherwise be qualified for a role be disqualified because their experience isn't solely in the tech/B2B space. I enjoy the work I'm doing now but I'm still so new to my career that I can't help but be curious about working in PR for fields like entertainment or consumer. FWIW, my internships were all fashion PR and I didn't think I'd be in tech.
