I was thinking about it because I was finance major UG and already have consulting experience. Would an MBA fast track me?

There are definitely some companies uncomfortable wth two years work experience when recruiting - but can accelerate things too... just a bit of risk there

Do you think they'd be more comfortable if the candidate was promoted before he left?

S1 - where'd you get accepted?

On promotion - very few firms know the nuances of Booz well enough to know what is accelerated promotion or not, and how significant that is, so unlikely to be a huge factor

@c1 I'm assuming that's the same as MBA counselors? @s&1 damn what the heck

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
