No, you have been doing this for every project. You know what you have done better than interviewers. So, just be calm and collected; you'll do fine. Good luck!

Saw that an old friend was a consultant at BCG and just messaged him to say hi, talked for a bit and he asked if he could refer me (probably because you get a referral bonus). And I'm a first year associate

I just did round 2 with MBB, was also underwhelmed by the prospect, and am really not all that excited about R3. Seems odd, thought I'd be more excited / engaged.

Yeah referrals are the way to go. We're all happy to try to get the referral bonus if we believe you'd be a good fit. I've referred 4 people and everyone has gotten an interview (no offers yet though :/).

Good luck !

If you guys don't mind me asking, how'd you get your foot in the door? Referrals?

What roles are these??

OP, r u in strategy? Post MBA?

A bit of advice to folks looking for sponsorship: When applying to an American company, please do well to use a resume and not a CV(international format). Shows you did your research. Also a resume should not be more than a page unless you have over ten years of experience or your bullets are absolutely relevant to the position you’re applying to. Being able to summarize your experience to relevancy is part of being a quality consultant. 1st few lines should tell a recruiter what they need

do you think it’s a good idea for someone to found two startups in parallel?

An upside of doing both: potential for synergies (e.g., one IT team covers both)

A downside is that it requires a larger time and capital investment from a founder. Thus, more risk.
