I graduated in May 2016, then worked at a firm for 1.5 years. Now, I've been at my current big 4 consulting gig for 1.5 years. If I leave now, does that look like job hopping on my resume??

If you're trying to jump to a third firm doing the same work, it will look like job hopping. If you want to take a position that better fits your abilities and desired direction in life, go for it.

Yes

Yes, try to stay until the 2 year mark or close but jumping now is not a big deal if you had good reason to such as great opps that you could not wait another 6 months for that would contribute to your career goal(s).

Who cares, find a role and bounce

Hello, I got an offer from Mckinsey for a Junior Specialist role. 1. Is anyone able to clarify the difference between the 'specialist' and 'generalist' pathways and how each track looks like?

Coming in from being a SC in a big 4 company to a junior specialist in Mckinsey, is this a step down or is it an equivalent position to SC? I'd really appreciate your insights! Thanks.
