For restructuring you need a financial background this could be an accounting or an ibanking. A separate but related field is operational turnaround which requires a traditional consulting experience in areas such as manufacturing, E2E supply chain and procurement. As for the best way in? I’d get a referral, we also hire on b-school campuses. For A&M ping Jim Best on LinkedIn (or get a referral).

Mainly: 1.) What additional skills are required on top of ones needed for cost takeout projects 2.) Do you need an accounting or banking background to break in? 3.) How would you recommend someone going about trying to find a job at one of the firms listed above? Is going back to school for an MBA the most likely option?

I was in a toxic friendship that ended on a weird note (not mutual. Other person initiated). We were both toxic and I recognize my mistakes now. Should I reach out and apologize? Or should I just let this friendship go? Right now, I don’t even know if this person “cares” enough to get an apology. But I feel like I need some closure. One of my friends lost someone to COVID, and it’s made me realize that life is short. But I don’t even know if I should bother with a toxic person. WWYD?
