Former consultants - If you made the jump to industry after working in consulting, how did that work for you?

I am very excited to know that I'll be working as a strategy consultant soon after graduation! However, I am considering 'making the jump' to industry later on in life to work at a more specific company that aligns with the changes I'd like to see in the world. (My dream would be to work for a company focused on renewable energy, or plant based food systems!) For those that were able to make the transition from consulting to industry, how did that happen for you? Was that a goal for you, or did it occur naturally? How did your day to day differ? Do you ever think about going back to consulting? Thanks so much for your time <3 #Spring24

How do I break into the consulting world?

I am a 23 year old from the United States finishing my Masters degree in International Business Management in France at Grenoble Ecole de Management. Although I am in a Masters program, it is still very difficult to break into the consulting world. I tried searching for mentorship programs at some of the top consulting firms, but from what I have seen, they are only offering these programs to people with diverse backgrounds, which I do not have. Any tips for improving my resume or any free online courses that you may know of would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

In consulting, do you have to get your own clients?

Hi I'm a first year college student and I'm considering consulting as a career or advisory such as financial planner. But I do NOT like reaching out to people and the idea of trying to get clients on my own. Is this the only way to get clients or do some firms do that for you? Thank you

What is the best advice for a sophomore hoping to become a management consultant??

I have always wanted to go into consulting, and so I joined a few business clubs on campus, and have researched different firms. I am not sure where to go from here though. If you were a sophomore in college wanting to go into the field, where would you go from here? Is it important to specifically choose one field of consulting, or should I keep it more broad? How do I know which skills they will be looking for in interviews?
