Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?

I’m working in-house…no timesheets, title I asked for, good salary (6 figures), remote, pretty much done at 5p. No, the work isn’t riveting, but that’s what side projects are for! Stick it out until I get restless, but nice to stop hustling so hard. (Accepting that I may never get a Lion.)
If you were selecting a school solely based on culture/student experience, where would you go?
I love working in the big 4. Forget the hours and focus on the amazing opportunity. I wasn't born in anything close to middle class. I will never take this opportunity for granted.
I am new to consulting, and I just witnessed (virtually) a staffing conversation between a Partner and Director that a new project was to be staffed based first by identifying how to meet a quota for “diversity consultants” first. Please educate me. Is this the new normal? I am all about diversity in the work place, but I never encountered staffing by an internal diversity quota before.
Posted in Big 4 bowl but reposting here: Looking to move into a general Consulting Staff/Business Transformation/Strategy position mid-late 2022. Was eyeing a Summer/Fall 2022 Business Transformation Staff position at EY in particular, but it has dropped off. Any idea of when positions like that will typically open up across most firms? Want to get in early, open to any firm. I do not have an MBA, but I am client facing and work in commercial markets currently. TYIA!
