I also came from a non-target school in the Midwest. I got my foot in the door by attending Out for Undergraduate (O4U) Business Conference my senior year. The conference is in September or October, so I think that won’t be applicable to you since you’re graduating soon. You just need to get your foot in the door. If you know anyone at the firms you’re interested in, have them refer you.

I came from a non-target. Just apply, you never know. If your grades and extra-curriculars are satisfactory, and you kill it in the interview, then you’ll be hired. Simple as that. No one is going to say “although this candidate was stellar, great scores, and will likely succeed, let’s not give him an offer bc he came from a non-target”. Your challenge is going to be getting passed Recruiters... network, go to career fairs, talk to friends, try and get an employee referral, etc

Random question, are you from China? Lol
Networking, apply, get yourself out there. Attend firm events especially the diversity related events. You will never know what will happen, but you have to give it a try.

^ why China?

If a large Uni, there’s always someone who works at your desired firm. Use LinkedIn to find them and reach out for an informational interview, kill it, and be sure to ask for other people you should talk to. Send resumes. You will get in the recruiting pipeline.

Just the way he/she writes.

Got promoted last year in October. Got an offer back in March 2021. My current company retained me stating that they will promote me in October but compensated me with a cash bonus. Things took a wrong turn and I landed up in a shitty project.Zero technical growth.

Got another offer similar to previous one. Location is my hometown. Profile is good.

If I resigned, I will lose the retention bonus & won’t be getting paid for the next 3 months + festive season is starting.

Should I move on and go to a different industry? Opinions are welcome! Thanks in advance.

I acknowledge jumping to anything more serious than travel buddies would be challenging and unlikely given the distance. Thoughts?

Again and again, it’s a culture of parents helping other parents. No gays in upper level mgmt in our office.
