Just started a stretch role from C to SC. Tips on how to exceed expectations and make a good impression?

Talk to your counselor and partner and set goals and expectations in advance. Follow up with your counselor once a month and with your leading partner atleast once in 3 months. Keep building your network and updating them about your progress. The more you will interact with others, the more success you will get. You have to be great in market yourself because that's what all matters at the YE. People with great performance but poor marketing skills got 3 and people with average performance and great marketing skills got 1 or 2. Harsh truth of Consulting firms. Goodluck!

I've been working as a Sr. Recruiter (salaried) with a new company for the past year. In that time, we've gone through 3 leaders and we're on our 4th now. In my role, I support multiple regions in various time zones, so I'm required to work longer hours. I dont mind it at all but recentIy I was out sick for 2 day and my new manager asked me to use pto for those missed days. We've had several convos regarding my work style etc. This was a bit off putting and would to get other perspectives.

I want to give a shot to product management after being told by multiple sources it’d be a good fit but I’m not sure the best way to go about it. Recruiters currently contact me for either data science or ml engineering roles so it’s hard to shift the conversation towards product. What are some of the best ways to signal readiness/ interest for product roles and the best way to prepare for the role itself? I’ve heard competing opinions re: online courses.

Folks- I looked at a role at McKinsey for a few weeks that I thought I would be a great fit for. This is not pure strategy but more like analysis/expert type of role.

He finally wrote back and wants to talk today. Got an idea of what my pitch will be but wondering if any advice of dos and don’ts....
