Honest reviews about interview kickstart? Is it worth it?

I can't bring myself to commit that amount of time, and I haven't heard of anyone else who's used it. Following out of curiosity!

I see great reviewes online but I'm skeptical about having to go through a 12-15 week boot camp just to get a job..I think that time can be better spent honing skills, building networks, etc.,

Yeah I mean I guess it depends on what you find to be worth it. Cuz to me spending 12 weeks to just get a position I can get anywhere else is not really worth it to me, but maybe they have opportunities that no other company has.

There is the opportunity to learn a lot there. I'd say go for it if you need a change.

I haven't used it and am sure it would help - but so would reading interview questions and having colleagues or friends in the industry coach you

I'm not sure if you mean the platform itself or a job there. I haven't really heard anything about working there, but I've used it before and found it helpful. Like MM1 said though, conversations with colleagues and friends can be helpful too.

In terms of quality? Sure. In terms of worth? Not really. I'm with the others. That's a long time commitment.

I was so good and confident when I was interviewing with consulting firms. Now that I am here for something close to two months, I am really struggling. Struggling to piece together coherent questions and thoughts. Struggling to speak up. Team structure is weird - no one has the bandwidth to address dumb questions, feel like I’m lost without good guidance. Overall this is not good for anyone wanting to be successful in consulting. Any thoughts or advice? Is this the initial phase, gets better?

In my late 20's, but I've lived in my current city (nonUS) my whole life. I was really looking forward to moving to NYC and landed a job there earlier this year although I'm still WFH and not in the US yet. A recruiter reached out to me for a new role but it would be in my old city. I'd be pretty fine with both roles themselves. But the NYC one would pay about 140$ TC (not sure about bonus yet, this is a guess), and the non-NYC one would be maybe $25-30 more. Is the $ worth the city sacrifice?
