Q&A: Early 20s w/ 140k TC came from a non-target school with a 1.666 GPA & GED from highschool
Decided to give back by answering some questions.
Summary of the story:
- 1.6 GPA out of highschool
Went to community college then transferred to shit tier university
Got lucky and got into consulting because fuck the story and fuck WSO for erasing the story
Now, I'm part of the top 3 tech consulting firms making a comfortable amount living in a tier 3 city in my undies drinking chocolate milk
The best advice I got was harsh, rude, and true. This shit helped me beyond anything else, I will do the same back to anyone asking questions
Ask me whatever questions you want:
How tech strategy consulting it like
How companies work
What people look for
What makes you stand out
Final note: Keep in mind that I am still relatively young. So everything that I say is subject to being wrong as I grow older and become more experienced.
However, I have had to endure a lot of obstacles/adversities that most people have to deal with when they are in their 50s. This is bitter sweet, because it was difficult to overcome but gave me a new perspective on life.
