Does networking help you land an internship/offer after it helps you get the 1st round interview? Just asking because it always seemed to me that your interviewer had ultimate say of whether you moved onto the next round or not.
If this were true, however, it seems to me that there's hardly any point of networking if you could land an interview by yourself. Say you went to an ivy, had a 3.8+, and had prior consulting experience. Is it still worth it to network?
