No. Experience is weighted more than academic pedigree

No. My friend started right out of undergrad

Yes. In general, generalist roles place a premium on academic pedigree while non generalist (RTS, Digital, Implementation, etc) care more about experience. Every consultant, regardless of role, has to meet the same standard in the interview process, but getting the interview in the first place is more experience/less academics in the non generalist roles

Not drastically, but they look for different things.

Is this different than joining the non-Digital branch of McKinsey?

24, thankful to have my bachelors and masters, little debt...1st gen & trying to build my nest egg. However, I just feel so directionless/empty right now, in some ways. Accenture has not enabled me to explore several areas of interest in my first year, and I cannot see a long-term here. It is no time to pivot. Have considered a MD/PhD/MBA...know it’s in the future, but no idea what, when, or where. Just feeling like the days are passing and I’m just doing my best. Any thoughts?

Really interested in the brand management role but if I end up not liking it the comp trajectory is not nearly as good as tech and wanted to know if that door will still be open. 2YOE, if I make a switch would likely be at 4-5YOE assuming I don’t go MBA route
