I mean, I've heard that people who went to prestigious consulting/investment firms are seen favorably but what about the rest who just had simple office jobs at some place you never heard about. Let's say, a department store at some place or some type of trading company, or maybe a paper company like Dunder Milflin(not real)? Does name value of the company matter to you?
+ 1. Also, what about people who are at the top of their class but have no work experience whatsoever?
I think top of the class is always more meaningful than work experience (with nudges for relatively equivalent).
If I had to rank amongst options, it's probably top-tier WE (investment bank, top consulting firm, etc.), reasonably-good sounding work experience (company I'm reasonably familiar with, etc.), no work experience, "bad" work experience.
But nothing in the foreoging is something a good or bad interview can't swing.
Any examples of "bad" work experience? Apologies if you already addressed this earlier.
I would also like to know about "bad" work experience. What about work experiences of international students (such as myself) who worked somewhere you don't know about? Or is "bad"/"good" more about the position one held at the workplace?
