I’ve never had a good experience with external recruiters. I always apply directly to a firm. The internal recruiters at good firms are often fairly high caliber.

I am so grateful today. I was laid off a few years ago and was trying to get into I-banking. I was on an h-1 visa. The market was slow, and PwC hired me instead. In consulting, I have had rapid growth and c-suite interaction. I have a Green Card now. Sometimes things work out for the best.
