Yeah only a year out of college and have crazy amount of people reaching out. Surprisingly a lot for PE (in investing roles at funds of all sizes). People who said consultants don’t get PE looks are clearly very wrong

+1 to Bain 1. I work in industry now and we get a tonne of people from MBB interviewing. The quality varies wildly, and often someone from a boutique consulting firm is actually preferable for us (tend to be a bit less arrogant, and to have broader experience). MBB will get you an interview but not the job.

Yes. Have been here almost 4 years post MBA. Averaging 2-3 headhunter emails/LinkedIn per day. Only job titles, schools, years on my profile. Half are mis-targeted, half are viable - $300-400k TC (though maybe not interesting). A few considerably higher.
