Hi everyone, recently I have heard my case partners from all over the world mentioning about account freeze. I am also struggling now to even get an interview opportunity. Is it true that MBB, Big Fours, and boutiques have stopped hiring for at least 1-2 quarters?
To be realistic, I am now planning my backup plans for consulting. Originally I was thinking of corporate strategy, but after talking to several alumni, I realized that they require people who have industry or consulting experience. Given my background in the financial industry, I have thought of these roles as a stepping stone to consulting (given that I don't have industry experience). Would appreciate your thoughts.
1.FP&A roles (to gain more industry knowledge)
2.Equity research roles (to gain more industry analysis experience)
3.Investor relationship roles (to gain more industry knowledge)
4.Product manager (to gain more industry knowledge)
5.Project manager (to gain more industry knowledge)
