FAANG no doubt. Check out Megan Quinn as an example. I would try your best to get into VC post mba tho

FAANG product management. VCs like people who have experience the product lifecycle.

I thought nowadays a lot of MBA programs enable you to jump directly into VC ( I have also seen my undergraduate friends jumping to VC) right out of college. I understand it must be hard, but have you thought about this route?

It’s like 2-3% of each M7 class gets into VC. It’s insanely competitive

Currently working as a billing and collections specialist in the Finance Department at a law firm. I’m hoping to move into more or a strategic/analytical role in a new industry, possibly tech or marketing, but have had trouble getting past the first round of interviews since my current role has not made me super marketable. I’m working to build up my resume by taking online courses but that doesn’t seem to be helping. Any advice?

Is it just me or are agencies loading up on commitment-free permalancers rather than hiring permanent staff? Is this a cost-saving measure, or things are even more project-based than they appear?

Does it make sense for a 1st year S&O SC at Deloitte to pursue a transition to McKinsey (no MBA)? Great personal brand and reputation at D, top performer. Would it make more sense to go MBA / if I transition to McKinsey, would I need to turnaround and get an MBA anyways?

Hi all, non-traditional applicant to M7. Was at large consulting firm (not MBB or Big4) for just over a year, before moving to impact investing consulting/research. Any advice on how to stand out, especially with below-median GRE (160Q, 157V)? Strong quant background, 3.6 GPA, top 20 UG. Mostly targeting Sloan, Yale, and HBS. Thanks in advance!
