When asked what criteria one must use to identify the right employer upon graduation, the typical groupthink tends to be cultural fit, compensation, or brand. While these factors are undoubtedly pertinent to the decision-making process, exclusively relying on them to pick the “ideal” management consulting firm post-graduation is less than an ideal approach.
