Consulting Job, NYC, Unusual career path
Hi all, first time poster. I'm looking to get into consulting in NYC, preferably with MBB. My academic/work experience is probably a little unusual, so I'll lay it out for you guys, and hopefully you can let me know what you think.
Undergrad GPA of 3.8/4.0 at little-known liberal arts college on West Coast.
Lots of extracurriculars while in UG.
Out of school for 4 years.
Two years working as a Peace Corps Volunteer in East Africa.
Two years teaching English in Japan.
I have almost zero experience working in finance/accounting, but consulting is something that has always appealed to me, especially in the last few years as I've starting to think of where I'd like to be long-term.
The recruiting pages of the big firms seem to outline a couple basic career paths based on past experience/education, but I don't really fit into any of these. However, they all seem to emphasize that they value unique life experiences and generally interesting people.
Do I have a chance at an entry-level position in one of these firms in NYC? Advice? Thanks in advance!
