Employed!!!

Yes!!! I'm done with recruiting for this year.

Last week was B.U.S.Y!!! I had already interviewed with my top choice company the previous week and was invited for the decision round on Wednesday. I had interviews with five other companies, and each one of them had multiple interviews. After almost 75 hours of heavy heartbeats - my top choice firm got back to me on Saturday to inform me of my offer. I've been in a OMG mode ever since!!!

It's official. I'd be joining Bain & Company in their Chicago office next summer.

I'm super thrilled and just cannot wait to start learning from all the great people i met during my recruitment. Also, finally i get to experience business school as just a student - so i'm looking forward to that too.

Congratulations Iday! Bain is an excellent company!! But I thought you were looking at IB or Finance positions...When did you turn towards consulting? Is it due to the ongoing turmoil in the financial markets? Just curious...
