Accept and renege later.

I would accept the non-consulting offer, continue interviewing w/ MBB, then make the decision on where to back out or move forward based on where you get - that’s just me

Agreed with this^^ ask to push back your start date a week or two to “wrap your final project at your current employer” or something.

Lastly if you’re interviewing for MBB now, it’s likely you’d be part of next years class if/when you got an offer anyways. So you’d have a good 6-10 months before you’d need to start anyways. At least that’s how it’d work at McK anyways.

Agreed. If you’re going in for MI or something where they regularly hire off cycle then maybe. I interviewed for experienced hire generalist and got my offer in July and was told I couldn’t start until Q2 of the next year.

I’m trying to make the jump from agency > platform (not FB…more like Spotify or Twitter etc.). I work with reps at these places as part of my job, but technically their loyalty is to my clients (the ones spending $ on their platform), not to me, working at the client’s creative agency. So it feels weird asking them for a recommendation or referral, but that would obviously be easier than applying on the jobs site... How do I utilize my “network” without making things awkward?

I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
