My sister is currently doing it and she going to go through 3 rounds: HR phone screen, Manager, Partner. So far she has made it past manager fingers crossed on last step of partner. My friend I referred (college recruiting process) did I believe 4 rounds: HR, Manager, Case Study (Director), and Partner Both referrals were for SAP my sister is experienced associate and my friend was college recruiting associate. Not sure why college process seemed more intense but that was 3yrs ago so maybe things have changed or just more competition at college level so weeding ppl out. I had an unusual process and didn't quiet interview right/ kinda got slotted in a weird way (maybe by accident) from a diversity summer program that I only had to do two easy conversational Partner interviews to get put in. Then I was slotted for Advisory Internship then I went full time. Not complaining but also no realistic path to follow (tried to get some friends in after and they were like "not sure how you got through but no they have to do full interviews"). I'm currently performing really well and might be promoted early or if not then mid-year so looks like I was a good pass through lol.

3 - manager and director phone screens then I met a partner in the office.

I had 5. One HR screen, 2 directors, 2 partners

I did 2 rounds. Manager phone screening, in-office meeting with Partner and two directors, offer in 24 hours.

Canadian office - 2 on demand followed by two managers. Was told there would also be a partner but I got the offer right after both managers

Totally depends on the candidate and practice area

I did 5 as an internal transfer ... it also likely depends on the group you’re interviewing for. Higher specialty and/or smaller team you will likely have more interviews.

3 is standard in my practice. HR, manager, senior manager/director, and director/partner.

I had 4

I'm 7 months in and doing a really bad job at my current project because I hate consulting and the job itself makes me really miserable. I feel really helpless and don't know what to do because the worse I do the worse opportunities I'll get at this firm later on and then I won't be able to leave. I've been interviewing with some other companies but no offers so far, afraid I won't get any because I'm leaving so soon. Truly feel so helpless and lost, I really want out.

I posted in the Healthcare bowl but didn’t get quality responses. PE is notorious for being difficult to break into unless you’re IB. However, there are success stories of consultants making it. Healthcare consulting is lucrative because it requires a very niche knowledge base that is honestly rather difficult to acquire. I’m wondering if that niche knowledge base would make it easier to exit to a healthcare-focused PE firm. Thoughts? Also, general tips for moving to PE would be helpful!

Big tech or consulting? Which do you prefer as a career and why? I realize this is really general.

This would be my entrance into consulting and concerned that if I wait too long, consulting would be a pay cut without prior consulting experience. It’s already looking like a financially lateral move but high potential. Vs tech is a big jump financially but different career direction.
