I hope to go into management consulting, and want to apply for
EY-Parthenon. Does anyone have any tips on how to submit an application or even be considered for a full time role straight out of undergrad if you don’t come from a target school?

The professionals I have talked to as well as the website only allows target school (ivy league) undergrad students to apply through their respective portals.

How do I get a fighting chance?

"Everyone should go to a Jimmy Buffet concert at least once"



Everytime someone texts at work, they never say good morning. They just get straight into the topic. In my previous company's culture (in Australia), it's offensive not to ask: "Hello, how are you doing?" before getting into anything work related. Does anyone have a better work culture where people actually care about each other and not treat work colleagues as if they're just robots doing work?


I work for a consultancy firm. Our client just announced they were hiring… a lot of people. They also mentioned things alluding to the term “trimming the fat”. Any suggestions on how to protect myself from a worse case scenario here?
