Went to a top uni but got average grades - was perhaps overly committed to volunteering plus military reserve service inc 2 deployments. Looking at moving from big 4 strategy & transformation consulting to a T2/ MBB with 2 YOE. How much will they care about grades? It’s the major thing putting me off.

How difficult/easy is it at MBB to transfer offices between MBA internship and offer? Ex: if I intern at MBB DC and get an offer but tell HR at that point I want to be in NYC for my FT role? Is that impossible? Would I have to re-recruit and/or try at another firm?

Can I jump firms without interviewing in this market? S3 with 3 years FDD experience... not really interested in more than 1 conversation to get to to know the team.

Why won’t firms take consultants for PM roles without PM experience but will take fresh MBA grads? How to get into PM without prior experience? TIA!
Hi y’all. So I haven’t technically onboarded for my firm yet, I’m suppose to start in 3 weeks. One of the projects I’m going to be put on requested to have a little interview with people of the team so I had mine today. The “interviewer” didn’t really seem to think I was qualified for this project at the end of the conversation (agree to disagree with him on that). Regardless, am I in trouble for not fitting his criteria/selling myself enough…kinda worried on my manager’s response….

This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?

Anybody did the apics certification in logistics ? I have the choose between the cslp and cscp but not sure which one I should be doing
A contact in my network reached out and is requesting a referral for a role they are not qualified for. How to respond? Don’t want to burn a bridge or be offensive.
Is LEK still hiring at the consultant level?
I’m… too sexy for this slide, too sexy for this ping, too sexy for this zoom, too sexy for this email, too sexy for these edits yeah yeah… I’m too sexy for this pitch, too sexy for this manager, too sexy for this BD, too sexy for this firm, yeah yeah…

I am on track to FI/RE in 9 years at age 42. But I am burnt out. Considering stepping away for 6 months to a year to do something cool, but don't want to fuck up fi/re. Help me see the forest through the trees? I've been a delayed gratification kind of person my whole life. Sick of waiting.
