Couldn’t you land a big 4 FDD role? It’ll open a lot more doors into banking for you. Heard of even BB hiring straight out of big 4

Never mind! If you’re coming out of college. That’s a really good move.

I was just offered a position with a non-profit organization. It’ll be a great transition from my current fellowship, and I’m super excited about the offer. Now here’s the catch, I haven’t accepted yet, but I am also applying for clerkship with a federal judge. If offered the judicial clerkship, I’d want to happily and eagerly accept. What is the professional way to accept the current offer and possibly leave if offered the clerkship? If it helps, this will be my second post-graduate position.

I joined consulting from industry with a salary increase of 60% and in hope to work on interesting and challenging projects. It has been only 8 months. My old job was slow, bureaucratic and boring but I barely worked 7 hours a day.

How do you manage to stay in consulting for so long ?
