“Please say yes please say yes please say yes” 🤞😩🤞

Thanks I’m coming from financial services vs. consulting so probably a bit more of a stretch

Yes it is youd come in as a post MBA consultant with your YOE

Network with current consultants, try to get a referral, apply and hope you get invited to an interview. I think youve missed the recent wave of experienced hiring but MBB do hire throughout the year, so you should start building up a network now.
