Hi, I am a master's student graduating at the end of this year, I am currently look for graduate jobs and particularly interested in management consulting. However, I have no idea where to start with.
-an international student graduated from Uni (not a top Uni) in UK with a business background (got a 2.1 Honours)
-studied master's degree this year at a much better Uni (top 10 in UK, but not Cambridge or Oxford)
-lack of work experience (sales and convenience shop assistance in my home country)
I know that my background is not impressive at all but I am working very hard right now and trying to achieve my ambition. It is quite impossible for me to target top consulting firms like MBB, and even LEK, Parthenon EY, etc. So my questions are:
If I want to start from scratch, what consulting firms should I aim for? Is it possible to work in a lower tier consulting firm and try to apply for MBB after few years? Or should I start my career in other industries instead, and come back after few years?
Can anyone give me some advise pls.
