If you wanna move on then you should. You are getting interviews, maybe it’s something in your interviews? Can you ask recruiters for feedback?

Yeah get feedback. For me, i have the name brand to get the interview and enough relevant experience to go far but I can’t compete with someone who’s done pure strategy their whole careers. So I’m looking at going to a boutique, investing a year on classic strategy work and then shooting again ... PS also cuz I don’t wanna pay for an mba

OP how have you described your HC work and how have FAANG recruiters and hiring managers perceived it. I’m in HC as well and worry about this despite doing almost exclusively 4-12 week strategy, assessment, roadmap type work. Any referrals or just applying on the careers site? My guess would be it’s not a level issue (C vs SC). Given the popularity of these roles it’s likely just that there were more competitive applicants at the time.
