1) depends 2) maybe 3) maybe Honestly nothing you can do but apply and see. From my experience, it’s most likely not possible to leverage it into an associate position but S& does have an established experienced associate pipeline so get a referral and hope for the besf

Do you have any other post graduation experience? If not, they’d bring you as an associate / experienced associate but definitely not as an SA.

Would they: 1. Consider me 2. Consider me for an Associate position in the same group even if it’s not explicitly posted 3. Not consider me at all and it’s not worth thinking about

On job descriptions are the years of experienced required section usually accurate or recruiters trying to get overqualified candidates? Let’s say I want to apply for a position that requires 4 but I have 3.

Last May I was volunteered for a stretch role that lasted 10 months, then corona hit so no real downtime after. Now getting volunteered to backfill a SM for an early promo. Like I want it, but I am not sure if I can do 1.5 years in a row of stretch roles without completely burning out :-( I only have been able to take 1 week off over the past year.

Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
