Tomorrow will be my first day at Boston Consulting Group and I really look forward to it. I’ve always wanted to break into data science + consulting, and still vividly remember how disappointed I was when Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Company both rejected me in first/final rounds 2 years ago (Bain & Company didn’t even care to interview me😊). At the end of the day it’s just a job, but I just want to encourage everyone: stick to your goals,do the hard work and it will pay off

I kinda needed this right now. I was just rejected by both Bain & BCG at the final round today, and by McK at first round a few months ago. I know it’s a crapshoot, but I did think I would make it this time into any of the 3. I’ve told myself to never take a job too seriously, but I really prepared like crazy for this, months in advance. The rejections across the board just made me feel like it was all in vain, or like I just don’t have it in me. Sorry for venting, it came out naturally. I don’t need any pity, I’ll be fine hahaha. I’ll either try again or move on, or both What changed between the performance in your interviews years ago and your most recent? If you don’t mind me asking.
