Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm a recent graduate with a double major in Bioengineering and Economics. I have a bit of an unconventional approach towards consulting: I've done a lot of bioengineering research (authored two manuscripts in peer reviewed, scientific journals) and also took quantitive finance classes throughout my undergraduate career. Since graduating, I've worked at a boutique healthcare consulting firm and continued the research part time(after FT) but am seriously considering moving into a more high-energy, real impact consulting firm (thinking ofBain, or a related field)
My questions are: what are the recruiting cycles for thefirms, and how can I maximize my chances for getting an interview invite? Do they recruit through winter and if I ask people in the firms who I know that work there, would I have a better chance compared to anonymous submission? Should I inMail recruiting leads from the SF offices for each of those firms?
Thanks a bunch!
