Top 5 European university being LSE, Imperial and the like? Try leveraging some alumni networks as on campus recruitment/ referrals are more important in the US

Side note: very few hiring managers in the US will know what a top five European school means.

Undergrad and B-School both. My buddy went to INSEAD and hiring managers think he has a second head when he mentions the name. Oxford probably would do better than your Bocconis and IEs.

Probably easier to join them in Europe and then transfer on L1 visa to the US. Not sure any of these firms are sponsoring H1Bs in the US

I am an expert path associate at McKinsey with 1.5 YOE + 6 YOE prior to McK. Expected 2022 TC = 200k base + 50-70k bonus. How should I position myself for (Sr) Director level jobs given my current tenure? I want to test the job market right now, but it seems like recruiters are reaching out for Sr Manager jobs with significantly less TC than what I’m making. Any tips on specific themes or types of experiences I should highlight for those positions would be greatly appreciated!
