Can understand the desire to upgrade!!!!!

Yes possible. Apply and rock the cases.

BCG1 - thanks for the reassurance! Any tips on getting the application seen? Apply online, obv, but do you recommend heavy networking with recruiters/consultants?

lol nice joke

OP, I recommend you network heavily with alumni or people who have done same lateral move to get an interview. Referral from EM/PL/M or above gives you the best shot. Good luck!

Bain1- thanks for the insight. I'm assuming Bain doesn't ever do direct to Senior Associate Consultant hiring? Is that correct?

No. Your placement depends on your working experience and interview performance. I have seen one person joining as SAC from industry. This is not a typical case tho.

Gotcha. Really appreciate the guidance, Bain1!

Either find people from your school or network experienced hire recruiters, eg Ms Loesche.

Thanks, BCG1. Are you open to connecting via a burner? (Not looking to bother or be a pest, just for some advice, only if you're open to it)

What is Senior status at EY? Like how many years out of undergrad or MBA? (Sorry I don't know the terminology)

McK1- 3 years out of undergrad.

lollll..

@OP, most of our BAs can make EM after 3 years but if you lateraled over you likely would be hired as an associate (post-MBA) or maybe even a BA.

I’ve seen a couple other threads on this but it’s only non-MBB people that respond.
