Hey guys, I'm finishing my undergrad this month and accepted a full-time offer with a top tier consulting firm (let's call it Firm X) starting in September. Since I have 4 months to kill, I applied for part-time jobs/summer internships to make a bit of money. Today I got invited by email for an interview next week and happens to be for X's biggest rival.
I'd like to interview for the role because the brand name and experience (I have no prior consulting experience) will help with getting assigned to good projects when I start at Firm X. Obviously, I will let Firm X know before interviewing with them, to make sure there isn't a conflict of interest (my contract isn't clear on this). How should I approach this? If anyone's ever done this before, let me know how you went about it.
