I have 2 YOE at a tier 2 consulting firm and just graduated top of class with an MS at a target school. How do I go about networking/getting a referral to transfer over to MBB?

Two options: 1. Get to a general track in the target school, most likely you’ll start as a first year from undergrad. Connect with school school recruter, but keep in mind that this year recruiting is pretty much completed. 2. Check whether anyone in your class is at MBB, discuss with them to provide referral.

I am not sure for McK or BCG, but difficult in Bain. I see few folks coming after MBA and 2-3 years post as C1 (entry level post MBA). I think would be hard with MC to come as the same level

They should have an OCR process?

They do but it’s a lot bigger in summer, I graduated winter.

In general, most firms including MBB, have a standard OCR process with one recruiting period per year. If you miss that, there aren’t many options until you have some experience and come in as an “experienced” hire. Additionally, random masters degrees aren’t typically valued.
