How difficult is it to get into Deloitte S&A from a non target?

Harder than Harvard!!!!


It's harder but not impossible. Network with Deloitte S&A folks and if you can get a referral from a current practitioner, even better.


Thank you so much!

Should be pretty easy?
I’m a non target in the sense that I didn’t even go to b school OR anything close to a target school (UMBC).


Wow nice congratulations!!

Serious question


I’ve seen very few actual non-target students. The non-target school students usually broke down into one of three categories:
1) Partner Referrals - Close connection with partner / someone referred them to a partner
2) Target Program - Deloitte partners with many affinity programs, generally focused on diversity. Although these students are from non-target programs, these target programs have their own quota / recruiting flow. Think INROADs, SEO, O4U, Grace Hopper, Society of Women Engineers, Forte, etc.
3) Employee referral - find someone who currently works there to introduce you around.

I’d say about 80-90% of students fell into the first 2 buckets though.


Thank you so much for the insights!! Will definitely keep note of this. Appreciate the detailed response

I’m happy to chat. I’m in S&A GPS from non target school, just graduated this May

Hi ,
Need an advice and thoughts for the below companies too much confused which to join
YEO -5.3
Tech Stack- Java , Microservices
Salary - Almost same
2) Coforge - HSBC client
3)BMC SOFTWARE - But the tech stack is core java and legacy application
4) Synechron - Client interview will be post onboarding
Last 3 weeks remaining to complete notice period,would be really helpful if you let me your experience in aspects of wlb, job security, future growth & increments



I thought moving from multi-cultural to general market agency would be different. It’s not. I don’t get the big projects. I have to prove my worth and I’m failing. I don’t know what to do anymore.

What laptop you guys are using and why you choose them? Looking for recommended laptop
