Rising senior here, I've summered the last two summers at bulge brackets and have gotten a very strong experience. I've been branching out a little after this summer looking into other roles (corporate development, strategy, management consulting, startup, VC, PE, HF, etc). My question is, with a strong resume and multiple offers in hand, is it possible to pursue accelerated interviews? My uni is very finance-oriented and even though a lot of kids do go into consulting, my network at M/B is very limited due to the fact that I plunged headfirst into finance. How would I go about approaching this? I'm debating online resume drop just for the hell of it but don't want to leave the chance of getting autodinged by a computer.

    I'm curious about this as well. Would you need an MBA to make the switch?

    What do you mean by "accelerated" interviews? If you mean skipping first round, I think that's probably out of the question - rarely happens for people coming directly out of undergrad / grad programs, and being a good banker / having banking offers doesn't necessarily mean you'll be a successful consultant.

    Does your school have on-campus recruiting? If so, I would definitely try to sign up for those - online resume drop should be a last resort. Also, anyone from your finance network that you can leverage? Maybe someone who made the opposite switch, or a mentor who knows someone at MBB you could talk to?

    Also, random question - WTF does "rising" senior mean? I keep seeing people using this term and have no idea what it's supposed to indicate.

    Rising senior means they are in between junior and senior year. When summer ends, they will be seniors on campus.

    Accelerated means earlier than usual so they can make a decision on the offers they already have. They don't get to skip any rounds.
