Am I too old to consider a generalist role within a strategic consultancy firm ?
Last year I obtained an MBA degree from a top 10 B-school following a decade long stint of working (as an IT Consultant) for a highly renowned global system integrator. Though the MBA was a means towards pursuing a career change into strategic consultancy, I dedicated the following year towards running a startup that I had given birth to whilst at School. Having failed in this venture - I am now seriously revisiting Consultancy opportunities within MBB /and tier 2 consultancy firms and would like to ask the experts for guidance on the following fronts [esp given my age & experience both being considerably greater than other fellow applicants]
a) how would MBB's would view my candidacy (pro's and con's)
b) What position should I apply for - Consultant ?
c) Would roles within the technology offices i.e McKinsey BTO be better suited given my background.
Appreciate any inputs and advice in advance.
