Sorry but it is yet another thread about what my chance are of getting a job with one of the consulting greats.
My current situation is that I am at a non target public university in canada about to go into the third year of my BBA. I have a good(currently 3.98) and I have one semester of work experience in the Finance dept. of a medium sized international corporation (and I have great references from the VP and Director).
I would like to try to get an internship with one of the big consulting firms (and ultimately a job) but I'm not sure what my chances are coming from an unknown university. Is there anything I can do to increase my chances? (besides networking)
I would also appreciate any insight into the work environment at the consulting firms. From my research so far it seems thathas a really good internship program but Bain has a great corporate (team-)culture but not having any experience working for any of them I really know nothing...
Also, I have been living on my own and paying for all my living expenses and tuition fees myself so I do have to ask what I can expect to get paid during an internship with one of the big consulting firms (not looking to get rich from an internship but I need to be able to pay my bills)
Thank you for you help!
