I want to go and work as a consultant in a foreign country (not my home-country and not one of those conutries where I studied in). I know that that office is full of foreigners like me but I need a work permit to work there. I am applying to second tier and boutique firms in that country in order to start in January 2019, Those companies know well my university program so I feel I can have a better shot with them.
My objective however would be to enter into MBB.
Can I still be considered appealing for an MBB in the short term if I start to work from Jan onwards at a 2tier firm or boutique firm (which is anyway fairly known in its field since I saw many people at senior level switching to an MBB) in that country I am targeting?
1) If I work my way starting from Jan, is there any chance I could work for an MBB by June 2019 in that country?What is the min amount of time I can leave the current firm?Isit based on the duration of my project?
2) Could I justify myself by saying I wanted to enter into this market as priority #1 and now I am trying toget into my dream company?
3) How can I manage interviews with one MBB?Since I will have to take days off from my current work?I do not feel like lying but I do not want to get caught by some of my colleagues...
Sorry for such a long message: I really want to get into consulting and I would love to get into MBB but I am too afraid to get rejected just because I have no whatsoever link with them if I apply only thrugh the website.
