Currently in strategy consulting as a manager at Bain(2.5 YOE) with a top 5 MBA & 5 years of HR exp at Unilever (before MBA) across business partnering, employer branding, talent&OD etc. Thinking of coming back into HR & I feel like I have a very strong/unique profile (hr exp+top mba+top strategy consulting exp). Can i get a senior corporate HR role that would typically be unattainable with my total YOE(~9 yrs) or my mba & consulting experience is not as relevant or even disadvantageous?
