Remember, Consulting is all about building relationships. So get networking.
And if you’re wondering how useful it really is or you’re just not convinced, a simple google search will yield a plethora of guides and articles validating the benefits of networking. For a real example, check out: How a LinkedIn Groups Conversation Led to an Internship.
Just one example of many out there. But you get the point. In the current market, simply going through the motions of drafting a cv, submitting it and waiting for the phone to ring might not cut it anymore. You’re going to have to put some effort in, be dynamic and creative and apply all the skills these consultancies look for in order to just get your foot in the door, at which point you’ll have to do it all over again, and again, until the offer comes through and that hard graft and creative thinking is earning you some well-deserved cold hard cash!
