Best path to strategy consulting from corporate venture?
Hey guys, I'm in a unique situation and I'm not sure how to recruit for strategy roles or what level I should be targeting.
I graduated in 2018 from a non-target, spent 2 years running a startup in CPG and now 2 years infor a large non-profit. My background is quite unique but nothing super special. That being said, I'm great at selling myself and talking up my experiences.
One thing I lack is a brand name on my resume. I didn't know aboutor target schools when I was in college and I missed those recruiting cycles.
That being said, I'd like to enter strategy consulting to get that brand name on my resume and get some fantastic work experience.
What I need help with:
I don't really know how to recruit for these jobs. Given I'm 4yrs out of college and don't have a target on my resume, I'm finding that I'm getting rejected from standard LinkedIn applications without getting a 1st round interview.
How do I get in-front of decision makers / hiring managers at consulting firms to help move my resume forward? Should I reach out to partners for coffee chats? Reach out to the few alumni in MBB? Target specific teams that work in my industry (e.g., startups)?
If you were me, what would you do to get your foot in the door?
