    I've heard that Assange is working on a dump of all SF PMs for his next leak. [​IMG]

    Oh noes. Millions of sock puppets will be exposed. The shoe damage alone will be a danger to the economy.

    I missed out on Kitzbuhel as well. [​IMG] Lots of good European travel though. Did some serious damage in Milan and London and Cologne which was great for Kiton deals back in 2000.

    I know this has been covered some earlier in the thread, but I would like some more discussion of the topic. I'm currently a poli sci undergrad who has written professional level academic papers. I have a working knowledge of statistics and statistical programs. I feel that the academic work I've done demonstrates a fairly high level of analytical ability. How could someone like myself leverage this into working in a business arena. Would a masters of applied statistics or something like that be a smart move?

    I'm likely going to go down the academic path, but I have a curiosity about other potential options.

    Best way... would be to just apply for a job.

    Go into marketing or risk analytics. Worked very well for me.

    Best advice I got was to always work with math. That's a skill that most people don't have, and few professional career paths teach. Now if only I'd listened.

    Apart from the obvious (less networking, less glamorous clients and possible less pay), what are the risks with taking a job with a boutique vs an MBB? Do you recommend MBA's apply for MBB first and only then settle for a job with a boutique if they don't get in vs just applying to a boutique straight up? Are the exit opportunities from a boutique really that much worse and is it possibletomove from a small boutique into an MBB after a few years?

    excellent question.

    My view would be try to get some major firm experience for better training if you are young and relatively inexperienced.

    If you have more experience and a specialty focus, a boutique is a perfectly reasonable choice.

    So what would count as 'major firm' in this context?
