I’m shooting my shot. This is not my preferred avenue but I don’t have the old fashioned connections. I’m looking for a BCG and/or Bain referral after a screening call. I applied to Mck without a referral (MBA/undergrad from non target schools) and have first round interview on the 29th. I have been studying casing/strategy since October to transfer from industry to MBB. My background is strategic mktg until ‘18 graduation from MBA, with a Supply Chain focus.

Thank you for considering.

Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets
