Lower paying but highly competitive jobs. Best thing to do is network like crazy. Go to any event in the space and actually talk to people. Ask what they do or what they are passionate about and not what you want.

I know Deloitte Monitor does some work around social impact in DC, https://www2.deloitte.com/us/en/pages/operations/solutions/about-social-impact-consulting-services.html?id=us:2ps:3gl:confidence:eng:cons:111215:nonem:na:Al3OYFbH:881105208:87537182229:b:Strategy_and_Operations:Social_Impact_BMM:nb

Deloitte has bring your friend events for federal, and I'm sure we do some USAID/DOS projects which could be related to dev work

What kind of non profit? If it's health related I know we are going after a lot of that kind of work right now

Dahlberg Development Consulting

Deloitte is not a great place for development. Just not much work and what we have doesn't require much junior staff.

I did Teach for America and came into consulting via business school. Some firms are more open to hiring non-traditional background than others directly- Bcg and mck. She could also consider applying to non-profit arms of consulting firms like Bridgespan then segwayinf into more traditional management consulting

Segwaying*

Thanks all! Will let her know

I have an issue with leaders meeting with my partners behind my back. They have done this a few times now and pitch ideas we cannot follow through on, which they'd know if they were more involved in the day-to-day. I (latina female) approached the conversation and made a conscious effort to keep emotion out and only address the facts but was told to "simmer down". Any advice on how to manage these types of 'leaders' or this situation?
