Hello Monkeys - I'm heading into my last, and need something to do besides pack up my apartment. Ask away and I'll be happy to answer.
My Bio: I have spent the last 3 years at a mid-sized MBB office in the US. I studied Economics at a top liberal arts college without formal MBB recruiting, so I know what it's like to break in from outside a target school. I had a pretty active role in recruiting undergrads, so I can speak intelligently about the process and what I looked for. Most of my work has been in consumer/retail, but I've dabbled enough to know what kind of work we do in other practice areas as well.
In terms of my day-to-day responsibilities, they've evolved from just "owning the model" to include managing client relationships with Directors and Senior Managers, and starting to manage more junior team members, essentially I've taken on the responsibilities you'd expect someone approaching the first "manager" role to have.
I'm headed to a MM PE firm this fall, so happy to discuss why I took that route vs. business school, which is what the majority of my classmates are doing.
