Recently added an MBB recruiter on LinkedIn. Anybody have a good idea of how I should reach out?

BCG- props for helping him/her out!


DM them abou what MBB looks for in a potential candidate. Ask them if there's a good time for a call to pick his/her brain and see if you'll be a good fit.


No worries. There is some delay between applying again once you apply (if you aren't successful) - so make sure you're in the best position when you do :)



Knowledge seeker checking in..

Is this in MBB or an external agency who hires for them?

What's you're role and what are you looking for? That may help

1 year of experience in advisory. Looking to break into management consulting. I want to connect on what moves I need to make to facilitate that transition.

Ok so at BCG you'd come in as a first year associate at that point. You can try connect, be professional, but don't be surprised if you get redirected to apply via normal channel. What is your GPA/ schooling?

That's what I am expecting to be honest. I finished with a 3.5 (crammed a 5 year program into 4) at a large state school. It's a well ranked business school, but not much recruiting outside of Big 4.

Ok, so you'll need to differentiate somehow, we are fairly selective with schools. Any way you can leverage connections? And you'll want a solid resume with good experience shown for your one year :)

That's the tricky part. I'm starting to expand my network outside my own firm, so hopefully within a year or so I'll be able to leverage some connections. I definitely got great ratings and experience this first year. Thanks for your input!

Which vanguard fund would you put 20k in before close of business?


Actual question, hoping for explanation on both sides. I know that’s a long shot. Why are people allowed to group white people together (White people are the problem, White people are the worst). Meanwhile it wouldn’t be politically correct to group a minority in the same way (would be considered racist). For a lot of my conservative friends, this is why they are against BLM. Is it because the majority of issues are stereotypes and racism against POC, which is clearly the bigger issue? Thanks

Hi guys, I feel like I’m asking a question people ask again and again. I’m considering to apply to MBA programs and would only go if it’s a top school. I’m a bad test taker, so not sure what my score would be. My background working in investment banking at a top BB for a little over a year and then switching to corporate strategy in a large-semi conservative industry. I just got an offer for a PM position at a FAANG. My post MBA goal would be to be within tech and the MBA (cntd.)


Decided I’m going to quit in the medium term to take some time off. It’s been really difficult to keep the same work ethic and as a result am creating more anxiety for myself. Any advice? (Contd)
