Hi all,

I was just wondering if the temporary ban on H1Bs will impact the on campus hires for consulting firms? Will they be scared into not hiring international students? There are just a handful that do hire international students like - MBB, EY, EYP, S&, LEK, KPMG, PWC and some boutiques. I will be applying for full time roles this fall and am nervous about this EO

Thanks

Hi,

While it's hard to say the exact impact, I am sorry to say that everything happening now, not just the ban on foreign workers, is currently and will continue to impact recruiting.

To be clear, there are and always will be jobs. You may just have to fight harder for your place.

Also remember two things: 1) The Supreme Court and 2) Elections

Hello!

If you see the proclamation from Trump´s office last week, the ban on working visa (inmigrant and non inmigrants) will be extended until -at least- December 31st.

Cheers,

Clara

Hi there,

You need to be one of the best to get into consulting companies which can hire foreigners. I definitely recommend you upgrade the application as far as possible.

Do you need any further help?

All the best,

GB
