Ladies and Gents,
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on firms that quite clearly have a bias towards hiring ex-consultants. For example, take a look at the team that comprises Charlesbank Capital Partners (http://www.charlesbank.com/team/team.asp). Every individual at the associate level is an ex-consultant, with no bankers to be found. Does anybody that happens to work or know someone at similar firms have reason to believe these places would consider hiring ex-banking analysts? Do firms such as these tend to have a different operating model or set of responsibilities that may discourage them from hiring bankers? I'm curious as to whether I'd need to craft my application in a non-traditional way in order for it to appeal to this audience.
Thanks in advance
