You have to get your MBA. The day to day skill set isn’t very transferable.

Ediscovery no, our analytics group (ADAPT) does pretty heavy analytics I never saw performed in forensics, but if someone had the skills, I don’t see why not!

People do come in laterally, but with either management consultant/Cdd experience. Other than that I agree!

You bet! Feel free to DM if you are thinking of making the switch

Anything is possible, though don't really see the connection that'd get you in normally unless you have certain sector expertise

If you’re within forensic tech I can see it. General analytics experience can get you in anywhere. Source: me

So interesting..Forensics pays very well and is probably more interesting than Management consulting. Why would you want to go pay a ton of money at an MBA to go into MBB? The only reason I could see why is because of exit opportunities from Management consulting.

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

Need an advice, even though I’m an HR. So, I’m unemployed at the moment and want to start looking for a new job.
