You should try to get your job through referral. If you go cold it’s tough. Try to make yourself standout, be crisp on the value you bring. I would hire over qualified person anytime.

Thank you Partner 1. He has been applying through referrals and has built great connections with some partners and directors. But even through referrals, the feedback and emphasis is on work experience after MBA and not prior experience. He's extremely driven and willing to start at associate level to prove his capabilities and show the value he can add. Any other feedback / advice from your perspective would be much appreciated.

5 years ago, I decline an opp to interview with Bain for an internal role. I think the title was process / tools specialist and the purpose was to provide SME on resources available to Bain’s consultants. Does anyone here have a sense of what the pay is for that type of role? I had been working as a consultant in HR Tech at the time and chose to move to industry instead. Bain had been a lifelong goal and I convinced myself I wasn’t good enough. It’s felt like the one that got away since.
