Our firm just delayed the start of the incoming consultant class from June to September. Senior leadership brought on attorneys to find out legal particulars for rescinding offers completely if things haven't settled soon.

What firm?

I accepted an offer early last week and it's taking an eerily long time to hear something

Sorry to hear that. Wondering how each firm is approaching this

Not for myself, but i know folks that would for sure have gotten hired. now basically asked to hold b/c of a deep bench.

Seems like things are slowing down. I’m working on my consulting exit and 2 months ago was getting LinkedIn requests and calls for interviews a few times a week. Now it’s completely silent and I haven’t seen many jobs posted recently.

We are honoring experienced hires scheduled to start in the coming weeks but I believe we have paused moving others forward until we have a better grasp on how this will impact the economy

Deloitte OCM laid off consultants and analysts. A recruiter contacted me about a position that listed Deloitte OCM methodology and ChangeScout experience as a plus.

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

Attorneys with the firm often send firm-wide emails advising of in house openings with a corporate client, and solicit recommendations or resumes of qualified candidates. Usually the client contact is a hiring manager for the position. How do I show interest without completely shooting myself in the foot?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
