I’ll be taking out a lot in MBA loans, so I want to recruit for the best possible company across IB, consulting, and tech. I care more about the employer brand than the job, and if I despise it, I’ll leave after 1 - 2 yrs for wlb. Any advice on how to recruit to maximize for this? Could I recruit mainly for BBs, MBB, and FAANG?

+ is it possible to recruit (study technicals/casing) for both ib and consulting

What kind of tech? If it’s PM, recruiting for tech + consulting makes the most sense

Going to be really tough to recruit for consulting, tech AND IB. You really need to narrow it down. There are overlaps in recruiting season, the interviews are pretty different so you will have to prep differently for each type and you will get burnt out like crazy by the end.

You’re much more likely to find success with a slight variation: recruit mainly for IB and tech, and toss in a few consulting apps. IB requires a lot more effort to get an interview since it’s all networking driven at most schools, and you really need to get an internship to have a chance. Consulting you can also recruit in your second year for full time

What do you want to do for a career? Those can all head in very very different directions.

Yeah, MBA PM recruiting has their timelines, but experienced PM roles are separate.
