My admissions consultant says to strike Strategy& from my resume (I have it within my PwC section) because she’s never heard of it and it will confuse the reader who my employer is... RIP

1) seems like a dim bulb 2) adcoms definitely know S& 3) I put PwC Strategy& just to avoid it

Lol what? Definitely keep Strategy& - adcoms know them because they recruit from top schools. I just graduated an M7 for what’s its worth.

Sigh or add the infamous... formerly Booz and Co blurb. I ran into the same issues when speaking with buyside recruiters

Yes people will know Booz if not S&. If they know either (headhunters or admissions consultants alike) they are probably a fraud

That’s ridiculous, don’t waste your money on an ad con that doesn’t even understand what they’re doing
