Has any industry experienced candidates pivot to MBB Engagement Manager before? My roommate works at FAANG as Senior Analyst (Ops, 6+ YOE) and was approached by McKinsey & Company recruiter for an EM role. He hasn’t done consulting before. Would this be too much of a risk? His goal is to pivot to PE S&O eventually.

I’m in my second round of interviews with Aston Carter / Aerotek staffing agency to become a recruiter.

I’m working as a corporate recruiter / HR assistant right now for a food manufacturing company that is super laid back, making $25 hour to do nothing most of the time.. what to do????

Savings would be Astronomical, I am hearing about opportunities currently, is it a bad idea to do this in the middle of a pandemic?

Why do so many people in our industry take such pride in not caring about advertising? Like I get that we’re not savings lives and one should be interested in things outside of advertising too but there’s just so much negativity towards people who genuinely love it. And when someone finds out someone is really into it, they judge them or throw shady remarks for no good reason.
