Comparison may be the thief of joy. But a lack of transparency is how people get taken advantage of.

I’ve been working as a paralegal in the capital markets group of a white shoe law firm in NYC. I took this job coming out of college with the intention of going to law school. But I find myself much more interested in the transactions I work on than the legal matters surrounding them. So instead, I want to pursue an MBA to pivot to banking. But I’m concerned that my current job puts me at a disadvantage for admissions. How can I position myself to get into T15 MBA if applying in 2-3 years?

To all my Canadian 🐠 in Consulting, I need your help please :) I am a management consulting analyst at Accenture, it’s been 1.5 years and I have an interview at KPMG coming up. When I spoke to the recruiter, she said she would consider me for a Consultant role (which is the same level as my current level at Accenture, at KPMG they start at consultant, at Accenture we start as analyst). Is it fair to ask to be considered for a senior consultant role at KPMG? details to follow
