How do you guys go about networking after you’ve already graduated? Working in treasury/middle office at an MM bank. Trying to network with alumni at other firms, but have an exact 0% response rate. My networking emails are fine too - I had a 50%+ response rate while I was still in college.

Got an offer from another B4. What pieces of comp/benefits are actually negotiable? Base, sign-on? And if they won’t negotiate on those two, what else can be discussed? Thanks in advanced!

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
