sent in 40+ apps, 1 interview at mid firm- what am I doing wrong?
Hey all,Current rising junior at.. target? Ivy, but not HYP. Recently been on the consulting internship grind, but have had really shitty luck. About 40+ apps sent in, and only 1 interview so far.
1 was slacking on the networking, and my GPA is only a 3.62, so I have those working against me I guess, but I still had thought my resume was pretty solid and that I'd at least land a couple more interviews. Honestly, at this point, I'm starting to care more about getting properly set up for fulltime recruiting than landing an internship and getting a return offer, as I flatly never even got to the interview round for most firms I was seriously interested in. I also was interested in specifically health and/or economic consulting, but haven't even gotten interviews at firm focused on those, like ZS.
I attached the resume and cover letter I've more or less been using (each cover letter is obviously usually tailored for each listing; this particular one was for an internal strategy consultant position), and would really appreciate any feedback going forward, either on my resume/CL or even just general tips.
