Job was postponed 9 months. So I scrambled and found another full time job within the same week. Consulting sets you up pretty good, don’t you worry!

I agree with ACN 1 - it took me 5 months but I was laid off in October. Right around the holidays when things tend to slow down. Now that the market is hot - you’ll be fine!

6 months from the day I stopped the first job and the day I started the second.

Yes 7 months. Though I didn’t start job hunting for the first 2 months or so

6 months. Didn’t start in earnest until about 1-2 months in.

Hey 🐠 I’m an MBA student and consultant getting ready for on campus recruiting. I have upcoming interviews at a Tier 2 strategy firm and one of the FAANGs for internal strategy, but I’m looking to recruit as much as possible to increase my odds given the current economic climate. Would anyone from the MBB firms be willing to send a referral to my school’s campus recruiting lead (I have their names and can draft an email to save you time). Please and thanks!
