@mbb folks, I’m matriculating to a target school this fall and doing the early access programs. Should I be reaching out to the current employees that host the sessions or is that overkill? I figure that these sessions have a ton of people, though I don’t want to waste potential networking opportunities
Should I expect to hear from an MBB I applied to recently during the last two week of December?
Recently got promoted to M at PwC but looking to switch cause I am bored. Want to stay in consulting but move up to MBB- will they bring me at senior or manager? Is the manager equivalent a principal? Thanks!
Is it difficult to be hired in an MBB London office as an American? I’m trying to move to be closer to my boyfriend in the EU and have heard internal office transfers are a bit difficult, so should I apply directly to the office instead?

MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
Any MBB folks willing to do a referral?
Do MBB hire non-nationals to work in emerging-market offices or do they only transfer existing employees? Would be very interested in talking to a Westerner who’s done this. Am US-based now, but with lots of international experience + language skills, thinking of switching things up.
Does referral (a random one e.g. from someone at MBB whom you don’t personally know), make a difference in applying for roles with MBB?
Has MBB lowered their standards? Maybe it’s my time.

Does it make sense to hire an executive career coach? So, I want to move on and find another job, also I would rather move to California or NY, I’m in MA now. My problem is that I’ve been with my current employer for 7 years, and they transferred me from Europe 5 years ago. I’m in my first VP job, and I got promoted from the inside. So my network is not really that big, it’s largest part consists of our employees, and I don’t have very deep connections in the HR community yet.
