I know a few consultants at BCG who were Schwarzman (you can easily check that on google tbh). I just don’t see why being a Schwarzman would help you pivot into CT. You best bet is to impress a partner/MDP on a few cases and ask them to champion for you (or just apply for it)

I agree, the challenge is I don't work on live cases but work on cases after. I was looking to take the Schwarzman route to add more prestige on my resume since I come from a non-target. An added bonus is switching geographies (SG/HK) and then applying to M7 with sponsorship.

Are you a Schwarzman Scholar yourself or what’s the deal with that?

@functional I had a similar background from an Ivy and got rejected. I’ve been told from scholars that at the beginning it was all students who had Chinese majors or backgrounds. Now they’re shifting away from that explicitly so as not to be seen as exclusively for that group and more towards a diverse Rhodes type. Don’t agree but whatevs

After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august.

Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?

I have been in consultant at a pretty well known and respected firm for the last 4 months. I am recent college graduate and like my company, but don't love my comp.

Or will they just be pissed off
