Consulting is a great job for people who are good at solving complex puzzles. Consulting can be very broad and can cover many different fields (i.e., healthcare, IT, management, etc.) but at it's core, consulting is about solving complex problems for different organizations. In fact, I have had managers who often like to start their team meetings with various puzzles and who encourage us to either solve puzzles individually or as teams on a daily basis!
Heather recommends the following next steps:
- I would consider the types of puzzles you like to solve! Do you have an inclination towards numbers (maybe data analytics is for you)? Or perhaps logic problems (maybe this means you would be great a process re-engineering). Hone in on something that is a specific strength of yours and then identify a consulting field that is applicable!
