In this order: 1. Victor Cheng's YouTube workshop for high level understanding 2. Case in Point for detailed frameworks and tools to use 3. MBA program consulting club case study books for practice. Always practice with someone else to serve as an information gate. Don't practice alone.

How do you approach a firm recruiting you when you weren't looking to move? It would be similar work, but I could negotiate a significant salary boost which would help my family reach financial goals faster. I like everything about my firm, but the pay is on the low side. I've never interviewed when I wasn't eager to leave my current job, and I'm uncertain how to discuss that with the recruiter & interviewer. I want to leverage it, but don't want to sound greedy.

Interviewing for a tech exit (start up recently became a unicorn). It’s 80k base + 5-10% bonus but 30k in equity… base is low but is 30k in equity sounds like a lot but only seems worth it if they get bought out / go public. Need some input on the TC. Trying to get paid

Received an invite for a superday very quickly after applying to Goldman. Recruiter never sent me the zoom password and then the password failed to work so everything started a full 15 minutes late. Interviews went great including a “they’ll definitely be a second round” but then I received the rejection email the next day. Do we think the tech issues played into that significantly or just my interview not stacking up to other candidates?

McKinsey has pretty traditionally been considered the best of MBB, followed by BCG, then Bain. Given all the scandals its dealt with this past few years do you think its standing within MBB will drop? I think its too big to fall out of the group but I definitely am leaning towards BCG being the new preferred/top option for people trying to break in to consulting.

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.

Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
