I’m looking to move to MBB soon. What types of experiences should I be looking to get at my current firm and highlighting on my resume in order to improve my chances of getting an offer?

Experiences will only help you get an interview, not an offer. You’ll have to perform well on the interview to get an offer.

In terms of experiences a good place to start will be a search on what qualities MBBs are looking for in behavioral interviews (i.e. Personal Impact / Entrepreneurship, teamwork, conflict management, ...). I wouldn’t recommend seeking out opportunities at your current firm just to highlight these qualities. Rather use the projects you’re on to display these qualities. Keep in mind these are qualities you should look to build regardless of whether you want to move to MBB or not. They’ll help you grow in your current role.

Lastly, keep in mind that having a good resume is just part of the process. To increase your chances of an interview you need to network too. Once you have an invite to interview then it all depends on your performance during the interviews.

I quit my previous job approximately 5-6 months ago due to toxic culture and being pressured to commit fraud… I fear hiring managers see that I’ve been out of work for this time and may assume I was fired or laid off. Additionally I’ve had a couple interviews where company “X” interviewers have commented on this and in an effort to not bad mouth my previous employer I’m stuck with a generic answer like I want to take my career to the next level with Company “X.” Any thoughts/advice?

Leave now or stay till March?
I have an offer to join Mck as ASC at 165+35. My current firm pays out YE bonus in March. I’m evaluating whether to join in Nov, take the 165+35, and forfeit bonus. The alternative is wait till March, potentially getting the 175+45 offer (Mck raises the offer for F22 start), and also collect my YE bonus.

It comes down to making ~$30k more vs. Joining Mck 6 months earlier and start building my career.

Thoughts? TIA.
