When I started the MG finance accelerator as a freshman in college, I knew very little about finance. ModernGuild gave me access to very valuable resources to prepare for my interviews. I have participated in similar programs, but none of them provided me with the individual attention that ModernGuild offers. Thanks to the one-on-one coaching opportunities, weekly webinars, interview prep sessions and calls with industry experts, I felt very confident walking into interviews, and was able to land an internship at Barclays. I highly recommend ModernGuild; it has provided me with the best support network for professional development while in college.

I can honestly say I learned a great deal from the mentors I was paired with at ModernGuild. The program provided me with a lot of guidance and direction during my prep for a consulting role, I participated in webinars and had a supporting group of other candidates to practice case studies with. I also received dedicated one-on-one coaching from consultants at top firms such as Deloitte and Capgemini. The most impactful aspect of the program was the guaranteed opportunity to interview with the sponsor firm upon completion of the assignments and coaching. I would highly encourage other students to take the next step in their career by applying to ModernGuild.

ModernGuild was very helpful during my recruiting season. The mentor walked me through the recruiting and interview process. Furthermore, the program provides me a good amount of interview opportunities and mock interviews throughout the recruiting season. It also gives me free access to BIWS, which becomes the most valuable resources for my finance recruiting process. I would recommend ModernGuild to any underclassman who's going to do Finance recruiting in my college.

After being accepted into the business school, I was unsure of whether to pursue a career path in finance or consulting. After being enrolled in the accelerator, my decision became clear. ModernGuild’s Finance Accelerator has afforded me the tools, mentorship, and support to succeed in the field. Not only has the program augmented my talents, but it has also taught me new skills that will serve me well wherever my career takes me. I’m grateful to Adrien and my coaches for their time and attention and look forward to the future of ModernGuild.

Applying to MG has easily been the one of the best decisions I made this past recruiting season. I think the way that MG's program is structured is very beneficial for students participating in accelerated recruiting. Not only did I get a solid support network of industry professionals and fellow participants, the psychological safety of knowing I'll be guaranteed a first round interview with my sponsor firm helped me navigate the otherwise crazy recruiting process more clear-headedly and with an open mind.

ModernGuild equipped me with the tools I needed to succeed in not only securing a position in consulting, but succeeding in consulting itself. From case interview to practical case prep, ModernGuild surely out me a step ahead of other applicants during recruiting season. I will able to participate in the program with ease during my 60 hour a week internship including cross country travel. I highly recommend anyone that is interested in consulting take advantage of this opportunity. Because of ModernGuild, I was able to secure a position after graduation as a Business Analyst with Deloitte Strategy & Operations.

I had a great experience during the MG Accelerator. I really enjoyed being assigned a career coach and the opportunity to network with industry professionals throughout the program. The MG accelerator did an excellent job in providing additional information on the different areas of finance which is a great help for any student looking to narrow down their career interests. I believe any dedicated individual will take a lot from their experience in the MG Accelerator.

My experience with ModernGuild has been nothing but excellent. ModernGuild has allowed me to expand my knowledge of the financial services industry, allowed me to network with industry experts, and improve my technical knowledge. If it weren't for ModernGuild I would not have gained the confidence and competency to secure a summer analyst position in investment banking. My coaches were supportive, insightful, and resourceful. In addition, during my mock interviews, my interviewers went out of their way to follow up and help me prepare for my super day. Thank you ModernGuild!

ModernGuild has truly been one of the best programs I have had the chance to participate in. I learned so much about different industries within finance through multiple webinars and Virtual Career Fairs, I gained a network of fellow student participants from a variety of different schools, and most importantly, I built a relationship with an incredible career coach who helped me perfect my interview skills and still remains a helpful and supportive mentor to me today.

“There seemed to be something a little bit different about MG - a way to stand out from all of the other hustle that you have to get through in order to get in front of the recruiters. The most helpful thing was the increased confidence in interviewing and knowing how to present myself and sell myself to recruiters and people in the industry. It was good to have that person on the other side of things helping me practice and learn how to position myself, which is something I never got in college. It was helpful to have structure during my program and have somebody that held me accountable and showed me skills that I didn’t think I needed when I was in my finance classes but that are actually really necessary in the business world.”

“My experience during the Accelerator was great - definitely met my expectations. I think the best part about it was that every single week I was able to speak with a dedicated personal mentor who helped me prepare. I also got homework assignments to work on more practical skills like how to do a leveraged buyout or a discounted cash flow. As far as meeting expectations, MG definitely hit the bar."

“I had a great experience during the Accelerator. One thing I really liked about the MG program is that I was doing it during my senior year when I also had my senior thesis and it was manageable. It was all online and I didn’t have to necessarily drive anywhere or go to different meetings. I really enjoyed the case prep and the 1-on-1 coach that who was really able to identify where I could improve. MG is a great investment if you’re willing to put in the time. If you really take the time to do the activities and meet with your coach and make sure you’re giving a deep dive analysis of the cases then you’ll really really benefit. I had no previous exposure to the consulting industry and just through MG and meeting people in the network I was able to get my offer at Deloitte."

At the end of the day, being yourself is everything. I graduated with a wide-ranging view of the consulting industry and an appreciation for all the ins and outs of the industry."

“I applied to MG because representatives at Deloitte encouraged me to apply to boost my experience with consulting and prepare for interviews. My experience during the Accelerator was probably different from my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was far more individual and customized than I’d thought, and that the team at MG was really invested in my success. I think what was most helpful was the 1-on-1 conversations because my coach was very supportive with interview prep (case + behavioral) and I learned a lot from hearing her experience in consulting."

“Before MG, I didn’t have any clear direction or path as far as my career options. I kinda knew a little about the finance careers out there but there wasn’t a guided process where I could directly interact with industry experts and figure out what I’m good at and what job ultimately fits me the best. MG felt like a small and relatively new startup so I didn’t really know what to expect, but having gone through, I can honestly say I’m glad to have had the opportunity to go through the Accelerator."

“I didn’t have much familiarity with recruiting before going through ModernGuild. I applied because I thought it would help me freshen up some of my basics and ultimately be in a position to have an interview with Citi. It was a lot more informative than I even originally thought it would be. The most valuable part for me was the weekly meetings with my mentor where I went through my assignments and talked about my experience in recruiting. I learned a lot about interviewing - how to see through their eyes and how to present myself as an attractive candidate. It’s a great way to learn the basics, or refresh them and connect with great job opportunities."

“I applied to MG because I didn’t feel like I had gotten what I needed out of other training programs and so I thought doing this would help prepare me for case interviews and cement my desire to go into consulting after school. The most valuable takeaway for me was developing my own self-awareness. It’s often understated, but being aware of yourself and how others perceive you and how you communicate your value and ultimately selling points to others and to your teammates is essential. I don’t think I would’ve anywhere near prepared as I was going into interviews without MG.”

“Before MG, I didn’t really know what I was looking for and didn’t know much about the consulting industry. MG really helped me figure out what I wanted to do. I decided to apply for MG because I thought it was a unique experience, especially with the 1-on-1 coach, that was something I couldn’t get anywhere else. Being able to practice with people in the industry who weren't biased or affiliated with any of the companies I was applying to really helped. I would recommend MG to anyone who is the least bit interested in consulting. You really get a taste for what gets done in the industry."

“Before MG, I found it very difficult to make a real connection with the people that I met at the networking events because I didn’t really have any training or formalized way of knowing what it is that they were. MG is very different from other programs because it not only guarantees you an interview, but it also offers lots of preparation and training along the way to that interview. When I first started the program, I didn’t really have much knowledge or know what I was talking about, but coming out, I was able to really express why I was interested in doing banking and how to back it up with my knowledge - that’s something I take with me every time I explain why I’m pursuing a career in banking."

“For me, the most helpful thing was getting matched with a mentor who could help me with the little details, somebody who worked with me through my resume and my cover letters and to figure out the important things to highlight and to focus on. The details that I wouldn’t have paid attention to if a mentor hadn’t pointed them out to me. I think if you’re someone who’s interested in consulting, a program like MG really helps. One of the best things that they did for me was to put me in a network of other consultants, people who could tell me about the work they do and in turn, people I could tell about my life story, things they might not immediately see on my resume. Without that sort of introduction between me and the other consultants I think part of my story would not have been carried forward."
