Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.

1. Try and get the Poland bcg offer back on the table and take it 2. If the above is not possible. Try and accept it’s easier to move to another strat firm than it is to move laterally within ACN. (Speaking as somebody who moved from ACN MC to McKinsey) 3. If you still want to push for it. Try and get staffed on a strategy project ASAP. Make meaningful relationships with strategy MDs and eventually try and ask them to sponsor your move. 4. ACN MC can be fun! The strategy consultants at ACN tend to have a chip on their shoulder, try and ignore it and just smash your job. Be curious from the start, be willing to learn as much as possible as fast as possible, and take all feedback on board. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.
