Hi all,

Thanks in advance!

Investment consulting is different than strategy / management consulting. It’s usually providing investment advisory for institutions (endowment & foundations, pensions, family offices). You evaluate fund managers and tell clients which funds you think are best to invest in. Haven’t interviewed at Mercer before but would just Google / prep for questions like how you would choose a fund for a portfolio.

Hi! I’ve been applying for jobs in consulting for almost 5 months now. Feeling super demotivated as I’ve literally gotten 1 interview. Not sure what I’m doing wrong. I have a 3.8 GPA as an Econ grad student and 3.5 years of previous work experience as a Research Analyst at a financial research firm! I’m open to any suggestions! I’m also an international student, so anxiety related to being in visa status etc also piles on. Thanks in advance!

I don’t think I could make this up. Interviewed with a recruiter, hiring manager, in house counsel, legal staff. I was told I was in final and was asked to supply half a dozen references who all submitted written recs. No decision so I was asked to interview with in house clients. Company still can’t make a decision so I am being asked to submit my final overall desired comp package. Mind you - this is not an AGC, DGC, or GC role, and not even F500 company. Thoughts? Is this normal now?
