I did, hedge funds love bcgers

That is true AC but no matter what position it is, hedge funds are aware of where BCG stands and they really value our capabilities compared to companies that don’t really care if you come from BCG or not.

@op. Yeah you need to narrow this down a bit to get any real help. As EY mentioned there’s a bunch of roles within a hedge fund and there’s a lot of different types of hedge funds. I’ve interviewed with and looked at a few of the large hedge funds for S&O type roles. I’m sure there are numerous other people here that’ve also interviewed at hedge funds. We’d be happy to help you but there’s not much advice we can provide without more info.

Hi there! For the last 20 years, I’ve been in project/program manager roles. Most recently, I spent the last 12 years in a learning development role managing the development of sales and technology training. Also, facilitating and partnering with sales on the development of Hunter workshops and sales/Pre-sales new hire training. I’m looking to switch careers to being in sales as an account manager / sales development rep. Advice on how to get interviews in this new dream role?

Has anyone successfully made the career move from an HR specialization to an HRBP role? If so, how? I have been working for 7 years in a very niche HR specialization and while I wear many hats on the HR team, I feel like this is hard to express to recruiters or even get an interview for an HRBP role. My niche area has really burnt me out, as it’s very political and I want to expand my horizons. I am already working on completing my GPHR certification. Any other tips?

I am looking to go in-house and I thought all of the interviews went well at one company.

No answer, any insight into why?

Have you ever quit a job and began your new job just to realize it is not what you were expecting? I’m at a new company and I completely hate it. The role described during the interview and job description is not even close to the work and lack of responsibility I actually have. I feel as if I was misled just so they could fill in a spot. My work is all loan staff. The challenging part is I have to force myself to complete my job. I’ve never was like this before. I have spoken (continued)

To be honest - this is kinda making me feel - "hanging off the cliff". 😶 Anyone would like to share any thoughts/opinions ?
