Pursuing masters (not MBA) at a target school and have a little less than 4 years of work experience.
From what I understand after the conversations I have had with the career guidance cell at the Uni, my chances of being considered for the experienced hire roles are as equal as being considered for entry level roles. Is this a decided disadvantage for me since the top consulting firms would prefer the candidates fresh out of top undergrad courses instead for analyst level roles? Also, is there any post hiring internal preference for the fresh graduates without work ex for entry level positions when partners select the analyst who they prefer to be on the projects they are overseeing?
I am a little concerned about the latter.
