Do any big 4 or MBB firms do brand consulting?
Anyone here broken into real estate private equity from big 4 consulting? What steps did you take to jump into RE PE? What gaps in knowledge did you have and how did you fill them? Outside of the knowledge gaps what other things do you think you needed in order to get into RE PE?
MBB 🐠 is health strategy (general, not payer and provider) a priority or existing area at your firm? Are those sort of positions easy to come by? Always trying to keep my eyes open.

Does anyone know a role at MBB that could potentially be a Pivot from IT audit / risk & Reg consulting?

Delta flyers… Is there a way to see if medallion complementary upgrades are available from Main to Comfort+￼ before you book? It used to show on delta.com when displaying the flights, now it just shows if upgrade certificates can be used.

Hi there. Which laptop would you recommend for personal use that’s a good deal? If anyone has any discounts with makers like apple or Lenovo that would also be appreciated. It’s an unforeseen expense😭
Is this what it takes now to get an in person interview. The video sucks too. Sorry if you're reading this kid.

How many bullet points is too many for 1 position? I've only had intern, associate, senior (for 1 month) experience at the same firm. Add in the education and other stuff, and I can't quite reach 1 page unless I load up on the associate experience (10+ bullets).

I've recently discovered I enjoy trend research and providing a client a perspective of what markets/trends to chase and plan for the next 1-3-5 years. I enjoy it FAR more than creative briefs or comms planning. What job title am I looking for? Does it live in agencies?
Experienced associate found an error in one sample and tells me they are immaterial so I gotta tell this person you can’t mark a sample below posting, gotta project it. I then look into the error and they marked a difference in the control for a recon we use in the sample calcs as immaterial due to rounding but it’s like way over the precision we document. I’m heated. No concept of materiality.
