Scratching myself

I'm also organizing my high school class reunion, because the President and VP dropped it (drama with the President being a problematic person in high school, which definitely hasn't changed). I picked it up, because no one in my high school wanted to, and selfishly, I didn't want to have to travel back home from MBA just for the reunion.

@sc1- the Bain one?

Anyone doing a pre mba internship? Worth it?

An intern kicked off her first day of her 2-month internship saying she was stressed out because she needed a job.

How do i tell her that you don’t tell a future potential employer that “you’re stressed out because you need a job”? They don’t understand it’s like dating (“im stressed out because I need to get married”) and want to set her up for success for the future.

Serious question: I’ve worked in MBB, Big 4 and tier 2, and the number one reason I’ve heard for younger (less than 5 YoE) talent leaving is that they are “not doing strategy work.” It’s also the top request from younger staffers to do on every engagement team I’ve led. The question: Are there any consulting firms really letting new talent do this? Or is this the top delusion of new MBAs entering the consulting world?
