During OCR this upcoming school year, I'm going to be looking at working for consulting firm locations in my home state of Texas. Problem is, I've checked the websites for the firms I'm interested in and they specify which schools they recruit at for certain offices (ex. Dallas office recruits at X, Y, Z schools in Texas).
Do I just go about the process normally for OCR, and then rank my desired locations in TX? Or should I reach out to the HR people in each firm in my home state and talk to them about recruiting?
Assuming I only ask for office locations that are far away from the markets near my school (NYC, basically), am I going to have the same interview process and criteria as kids applying for more desirable offices?
