I believe ~7 is more of what you usually see

Was the person a boomerang or prior consulting? Did they get consecutive promotions in a year

Effectively that’s the only way, here are a few examples: 1) MDs + MBA that do healthcare (go up really quickly, or out) 2) People who delay their MBA and go as EMs 3) Those with considerable industry experience, who are also amazing. Usually hired as senior associates post MBA I’m not saying it’s impossible.... but I wouldn’t bank on it

This personal started as an associate after MBA, spent a year at each level, 2 years at associate partner. Totaling 4 before he made partner. Unbelievable!

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

1yr of work experience at MBB -- prior experience was in non-profit / community development. What exits could allow me to stay in the private sector that aren't consulting?

Any ideas?
