Preferred but not necessary - I interviewed for two corporate strategy ones and they were looking rigor in analytics and quality of consulting experience, particularly in the industry of choice.

Thanks ATK. So far whatever positions I have explored ( either on my own or through recruiters) they need significant deal experience and not just typical strat projects. So was wondering if I am experiencing a skewed sample set

Looking for roles internally at the current company, and the role identified is an individual contributor role. I exited consulting at a Director /SM level, and due to the layoff took a not so good role 2 years ago. The hiring manager for this role asked "why do you want to be a people manager". Frankly, I was a little shocked at this even being a question. How would you react in this situation it you were me? Would you entertain/respond to this question at all? The communication is in writing.
