I’m 22, starting in a month, and grew a relatively thick well-groomed mustache this summer. Some have mentioned that consulting/finance folks in general can prefer when one looks older and that the mustache would help with this. Will it serve me positively to look older?

Mustaches are coming back!! Rock it, OP

A lone stasche is a bold move. Not many people can pull it off.

As far as looking older, it’s a double edged sword. On one hand looking older tends to make people view you a little more seriously, which is nice. On the other hand the younger you are the more leeway you’re given for small mistakes. After all, you’re young and still learning.

Don’t worry about age and go clean shaven. Facial hair is gross.

Looking older may help you professionally but personally I am very upset with the facial hair trend. I really can’t perceive a guy romantically with it and it limits my dating choices :(

Agree. It’s gross

Any advice on how to build business with a firm that is not well known? I will add that once we are in, we do very well because the firm does very strong work and is loved by clients.

Am I the only one that runs into this? Halfway into an interview it’s apparent you know the role better than the hiring manager does. As soon as this happens I always feel like I am wasting my time because I know they’re likely going to look for a less experienced candidate. Unfortunately I don’t have the years of experience for senior manager/director roles so it seems I run into this very often for manager level roles.
