Getting Started in Consulting

Linked image to consulting academy guide in pdf formThis guide gives you a basic guideline for what you should do in your freshman, sophomore, junior and senior year to be on track for a fulfilling career in consulting, including healthcare consulting, government consulting, financial consulting and more. Consulting students should expect a more rigid career path than some of their peers: recruiting is heavily in fall for both internships and jobs, and many students have an internship after their sophomore and junior year which leads to a final job offer. The best way to keep up is to attend Consulting Academy events and employer sessions when possible, especially Consulting Career Week, normally held at the beginning of the fall semester.
