another way

They like graduates because they have no baggage and have not leanred any other way so the big boys can train them the way they want them. I'd suggest giving up on the big boys and instead apply to smaller specialist consultancies that specialise in your field. Alternatively, if you have some contacts that could become clients, look into starting up your own business, either with like minded individuals or on your own. You may find in time that you have built a solid enough business that a larger firm may want to buy and you get in that way. Good luck!

well, i dont think the big 5 would help me, so i have begun looking at more independent cons.starting out on my own would not be an option as i have good but not outstanding experience.i am willing to start afresh and do whatever is possible though.

me

My experience from McK and ATK indicates that they go for MBA from prime business schools like Harvard, Wharton, Insead, etc., and students with good grades. These firms also visit campus and having recruiting days to get people in as Summer Associates, otherwise it is difficult unless you have contacts. I would suggest looking into the big-five spin-offs or boutique firms as an interesting way of may be getting in.

Hope that helps.
