I am currently looking to pivot from an academic research position to LS consulting. I have had discussions with people who have successfully made similar transitions, but I would greatly appreciate any additional feedback. My plan is to begin applying early June, so any advice on which firms to look into/ are currently hiring would also be appreciated.
