The Big Impact Business
Firms hire consultants when they need functional expertise that they don’t have in-house. Consultants have high impact potential — they provide objective opinions on decisions or on-demand resources that turn around companiesa, launch groundbreaking innovations, and redirect industries. To succeed in consulting, you need stellar qualitative and quantitative analysis skills, a killer work ethic, and an ability to manage projects and communicate persuasively.
Consultants spend a lot of time on the road pitching prospective client work, analyzing issues using financial and statistical models, and recommending and implementing solutions. A consulting career is stimulating — it offers constant exposure to new projects, industries, teams, and locations. You’ll build an impressive war chest of skills that will serve you throughout your career.
