How difficult (relatively) is it to recruit for an MBB London office from a T15 US MBA program compared to a US office? I know it's not done often, but is that mainly due to the salary difference?
Has anyone ever exited Technology/Digital type consulting roles into something more business / commercially oriented? If so, how did you go about it and what sort of roles were open to you? I fell into Tech and it has never really been of huge interest to me. My background is 10 years experience at IBM > EY-Parthenon > AlixPartners with an MBA in between.

Recently completed recording a series of seven one-hour webinars, approved for credit by CFRE for both certification and continuing ed. Did some advertising on LinkedIn, no takers yet. I have some name recognition in the nonprofit development world, where quite a number of people do need these credits. Not sure what to try next. I also have a 25k word text that could accompany these webinars and serve as a desk reference, not quite ready for publication. Have not figured out distro.

Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
Looking to break into big tech (FAANG, etc.) from GPS consulting. Is there anything I can do while in GPS to make myself a good candidate or is the solution just go to commercial and/or get an MBA?

Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?
