You worked for 3-5-8 years in a consulting firm.
Your goal was to gain top professional experience, but also insure a good label on your resume.
You provided strategic advice to top organizations and built up an important network.
“But you want to follow through on your strategic recommandations and be more operational. You feel the need to be apart of something.”
“Now you are wondering. What to do after consulting ? Should I continue ? Or should I enter a company ?”
To become principal/director/partner in 5/10/15 years… If you are able to achieve it.
To quit consulting and join a company.
To become an entrepreneur…
That is not the purpose of our agency but feel free to contact us. We can discuss about it.
Let’s talk about OPTION 2 >> Reality Check
Finding “The Perfect Job” is not that easy…
- You were told that working in consulting would lead to positions with high responsabilities.
Yet, those opportunities are rare : many are called but few are chosen.
- Head hunters call you. That is boosting your ego. But they offer similar positions in other consulting firms or less exciting positions in other companies.
- You end up looking on your own. But you are not finding anything suitable. You might have interviews for positions that meet your ambition. But they always tell you that experience and operational skills are missing.
Your problem : Consulting is supposed to be a launching pad for an exciting career, but the reality is tougher than expected. What to do?
