Is it hard to get into big tech from big 4 tech consulting after 3+ years? I tried at 2 yoe and didnt get any FAANG interviews. I was also targeting data analytics roles and it seems pretty tough. No referrals... I will try again in probably a year but really hoping to hear some success stories. All my offers were in consulting 😭😭😭😭
