Hi, unfortunately I was counselled out this round due to performance issues. I'm considering applying to strategy roles opened by clients, but my concern is that the recruiter may very easily reach out to my firm and check my performance. Would like to seek your advice on:
1. Is underperformance a major threshold to apply to client's opening positions?
2. Assuming the applicant is from consulting, do industry players really care about the applicant's performance in the consulting firm? There's a lot of “up or out” happening in the consulting industry, and many underperformers in consulting join the industry and succeed in their new role.
