I think it’s all about how you tell your story and how well you interview. I did a combination of management and tech with some strategy sprinkled in, but it was all about highlighting the most relevant aspects and prepping for the interviews

Was recently promoted to SA, not expecting to make manager before leaving for school or another opportunity

One hesitation I have is not having time to get good B-School recs if I apply for the next cycle

Pwc OP What consulting did you do? I want to switch into strategy but not sure how easy or the best steps are?

Take the job.

Fellow Fishes - How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way. I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
