I am turning 40 this year, and currently finishing my postdoc training in Harvard med. I graduated with my Ph.D. degree 2 years ago, and I have around nine years of working experience in the clinical pathology lab.
I recently attended an informational session from BCG and found consulting is interesting. I tried a few mock case interviews and did pretty well and became fascinated by consulting career.
But, I was told by a couple of friends that 40yo may not fall into the age group of the new recruitment in consulting company.
Can anyone give some comments? Should I just give it up?
