Recommend finding areas you’re passionate about and becoming the go-to person for those. You’ll need that for your brand at your T2 anyway, but it will pay dividends for interviews as well. Maybe it’s rare disease specialty, or hot newer areas like sustainability. Or nascent/emerging tech like web3. Your T2 should be a great platform to build yourself out in something that is ideally in demand, not over saturated with competition, and also an interest area for you. A lot of people never build out anything that interesting and just do generic strat work in an industry. Nothing wrong with that if you’re good, but there will always be more competition if you’re just doing standard generalist work and not doing anything to stand out. And then maybe brands do matter more as tie breakers.

Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this.

So my problem is not with Twitter censoring calls for violence or hate speech. They're a private company and follow their guidelines. But why are they selectively applying it?

In July I missed my promo to SM. A woman has been preferred even if she was underqualified (my MD's words), as at Accenture we have quotas for women.

I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?
