Same as gals

Look online there are sample cover letters available.

Your best bet (if you're not coming via on-campus recruiting) is to find a partner who wants you to refer you. Pretty sure there's no cover letter involved at all (other than perhaps an email you write to that partner). That's how I joined McK as an experienced hire (without an MBA or any graduate degree).

A trust fund check?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

How does EYs senior manager translate into a MBB model? Working alongside an EY SM who thinks they’re a junior/associate partner but whose responsibilities seem to match an EM. Also is it normal for Big 4s to ignore juniors? This SM refuses to listen to anything I say and gets annoyed anytime I speak in a meeting or when I said I was talking to the partner directly - whereas my McK team proactively encourages me too.
