Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?

I think 1 year in consulting is fine - just make sure your story is cohesive beyond “immigration issues” and you’ve done at least 1-2 DD’s

Wow, I can relate. Thanks for this! My visa issues have been my biggest struggle as well so it’s naturally a huge part of my story. Mind if I DM? I’d be grateful to chat offline if you’re amenable. TIA!

Don’t wait for 2 years. Get in touch with headhunters and actively interview for on-cycle as well as off-cycle opportunities.

Can you talk about your lateral process? How did you start? What’s their timing? How did you prep?

like

Didn’t lateral. I didn’t get my H1B visa so had to do a 1 yr master’s degree after banking. Recruited for consulting as a campus hire

Are you trying to recruit for on-cycle for summer 2022? Does anyone know if he/she has missed this already?

Thanks! Would either recruit for on-cycle/off cycle but was generally wondering if I would be given credit for my 1 year in banking so I could move to PE after 1 year at McK
