So I just got a pre-MBA internship in an industry I’m curious about (food and bev startup) but am not sure if I want to recruit for it. Does having this disjointed work experience look odd to recruiters? Specifically in tech.

All depends on how you tie it into your story. If you went from consulting to food, and your reason was “ehh I was interested in food!” Then yeah sounds bad. But if its something like “after trying consulting, I wanted to try something where I could make a bigger impact on my organization, so I tried a startup. I loved it but learned that XYZ wasn’t for me. Now I see *tech firm* as a next step b/c it offers ABC which I learned I loved from both consulting and the startup and it doesn’t have XYZ which I learned I don’t like”

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

What's the average salary for a strategic planner w/ an MBA (Chi)? Def underpaid compared to market rate, but not sure how much a masters affects $$ for me to be able to negotiate further.
