Also, based in Chicago - still can't tell if this hurts me or not.

Golden Gate really likes people with consulting backgrounds from elite shops - your banking exposure definitely couldn't hurt.

If the stars align and I get a call back, I will find you, wherever you are, and give you an endorsement for "double-jointedness" on LinkedIn (and Tinder if you're on there/that's possible/I'm too old for this shit).

Ain't on tinder haha

Inspiration for those considering an industry role: Two months in at my industry job and all is well. Great title, doubled salary, great colleagues, opportunities for advancement, better work-life balance. After 10 years in consulting, I was nervous to make the jump, but can say this was a good move.
