Currently finishing up my summer internship at T2 consulting firm (ATK, S&, LEK, ACN) and just found out that I am not getting a return offer. The feedback during the return offer call was a bit more direct than any feedback during the internship. It was not a matter of effort, attitude, or culture, but there were some concerns about performance. I sort of expected that given I come from a non-traditional background (military, non-profit, TFA) and this was my first experience in the corporate world.
Just looking for general advice. Has this happened to anyone on here? I'm hoping to re-recruit for consulting full-time and know I need to be able to explain this well, just hoping that it is not a huge red flag. Also wondering if it is even common for employers to ask if you have a return offer?
