I am currently an entry level consultant with a specialist consulting arm of a well-known Tier-2 consulting firm in the UK. A few months into the job and I am already fed up with the specific sector, but like the job (I had a general management background during my MSc degree and took this job only because I wanted to get a consulting gig in London)
1. Is it possible that I apply to MBB firms for a generalist consulting role? If I apply in October 2020 for a position in September/October 2021, then I will have around 1 year of experience before starting the job with the MBB firm.
2. Is there any possiblity that I could get some sort of a fast-track role? I understand that I cannot get the role of an Associate in McKinsey/SAC at Bain/Consultant at BCG, but can I negotiate with the HR at the time of hiring for a faster promotion to the next level?
3. Is this sort of fastrack process more possible in another office like Dubai, instead of London? (Only because the process is very structured in the UK)
