I can look at your resume if you want fbburner314@gmail.com As for networking, you should tailor it to whatever role/industry you're interested in. Find events & conferences that are relevant to that specific space. Also, don't underestimate your own network. If you're very clear about what you want your next role to be, it's easier for the folks you know to identify other people they know that may be helpful.

Not sure if my resume is not aligned to expectations/algorithms here. Or is resume alone not enough without network. Can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

Networking networking networking. Get to know people in target companies through informational chats. If you're lucky they refer you or point you to people who could. Just blindly sending out resumes on LinkedIn without networking is a bad strategy.

M1 - is it worth getting a resume consultant to look over my resume? If so, any recommendations?

BCG1 - any advice for how to start networking? My usual way is to find a common acquaintance to make an introduction. That's not working here since my current network is so meagre. Does cold emailing work?

So last month a started a job (mgmt level) that I took in part because nothing else was on the horizon and I was becoming anxious about money. The minute I accepted this job I started getting calls from recruiters from bigger name companies with more interesting sounding (but individual contributor) jobs. I feel a certain FOMO but on the other hand part of me is starting to get comfortable. Should I still keep interviewing if recruiters call? Or should I focus on maximizing my current job?

Hi, I have a PE case study interview in the coming week and was wondering whether there's an accepted rule for modelling returns - should you use the FY21E figure (assuming some rationale to the run rate) or just use the most recent actual? Motivation for asking is partly as I know lots of deals are being traded off forward EBITDAs so thought maybe using the next year expected figure would be common? Thanks in advance!

Was laid off from D recently and have been interviewing primarily for strategy roles. Curious for any advice converting in final rounds. I have been through several at this point and not gotten the offer. Received very positive feedback from the teams about my performance but in each case they said it was very competitive and ended up going with someone with slightly more direct experience. Tough to go through several 6+ week multi round processes and not convert. Any help or advice appreciated!
