Working at MBB or other top tier firms make you overqualified for exit opps?
So, I was just came back from a 4-day MBA recruiting event at a fantastic resort for a global FMCG firm and met many fantastic people with top notch MBB / GS type work experiences with excellent academic pedigrees.
Having interacted with about 40 odd of the aforementioned people, I came to the point where it seems like the job market is really tough out there for these people. Most of the MBB HBS consultants I met seem to tell me that many non banking/consulting companies regarded them as too overqualified and tend not to consider them even though they were comfortable with taking a paycut.
Experienced consultants, have you ever experienced that?
