In terms of researching , I got LinkedIn premium and stalked the roles of ex-consultants at my target companies. More importantly, I had lots informational interviews with of ex-colleagues and MBA friends. They also helped with referrals which are essential for these companies. Prep will depend greatly on the role and company, but revising my behavioral stories was critical. I was recruiting for product-focused roles and found the book ‘cracking the PM interview’ pretty helpful

@PWC2. Fairly certain that’s not accurate. PP is currently only available for extensions with an existing employer, which will be be handled in Nebraska. PP for all transfers is suspended irrespective of center

May depend on what industry. I just got offers from 2 FAANGs. It’s a gamble all round to work on a receipt notice, but hiring of H1Bs in tech certainly hasn’t stopped.

Think there’s a really wide mix of jobs and backgrounds. I’m sure there’s a lot of hard-skilled tech consultants that get in, but that’s not me. I’m a MBA doing strategy consulting, so mostly on the softer skills side. I’d perhaps search LinkedIn for some of the role types you’re interested in and check against the experiences of the people currently doing them

Nebraska center hasn’t suspended pp yet. So you could still get pp there. Obviously it depends on your work location

M1 any tips? On what roles to look for and apply to? How to prep? Looking to move. Have a strategy background too

TBH, for folks in Deloitte Consulting, we will get our visas rejected anyways due to shoddy work by gglaw. Why not take a leap of faith? Even Desi consultants have higher rate of approval than Rigid Deloitte

Has anyone ever been promoted to ACD only to feel like they were much happier at the Senior CW/AD level?

Would it look horrible to eventually take a job somewhere else back at the Senior CW level? I’ve always loved being the maker - focusing on writing and concepting. Having a lot of anxiety that this new position isn’t the right path for me.
