Tetra Tech hiring entry level Business Development roles in Burlington VT

This was shared by an alum, sounds like a great opportunity:

“Program/business development is a great way for liberal arts majors to enter the international development field, as there is a focus on writing, organization, and teamwork, as well as opportunities for travel and exposure to different technical areas and geographies. We’re looking to hire in the next month or so, so an ideal candidate would likely be a recent graduate with strong internship experience or a graduate with 1-2 years of experience (internships, fellowship, Peace Corps, etc.).”

How to Sort of Be Happy in Law School

This book was recommended and I thought I would share it here.

“How to Be Sort of Happy in Law School is different from previous law school books.  Instead of assuming law students should all aspire to the same ideas of success, Young draws on sociological and psychological research to figure out how law students can learn to tune out conventional expectations and create a law school experience that will work for them as individuals.

Packed with practical tools for finding focus, happiness, and a sense of purpose while facing the onslaught of problems law school presents, this book is an indispensable companion for current and future law students, their families, and anyone who cares about making law students’ lives better.”  Learn more here: https://www.sortofhappy.com/

Consulting Prep for the Fall

As the calendar turns to August – sigh! and the summer winds down and your internship gets closer to finishing up, you might be thinking about how to get ready for the new school year.  Here are some ideas for you:

Network

This should not be a surprise to you, relationships matter.  So either start or continue to reach out to alumni or other contacts.  Not sure what to ask or how to reach out?  Read this and this.  Think about who you know, and consider asking for a referral to other people.  Consider your affinity groups like maybe sports teams, music groups, clubs or other activities you are involved with.  MiddNet is a good start (over 250 alums in this field – go to Industry, then “Other Business- Business Consulting” all the way towards the bottom).  And this LinkedIn alumni tool is very powerful with over 32,000 alumni.  https://www.linkedin.com/school/middlebury-college/alumni/

Research and Target firms

Despite how great Middlebury is, we are not a target school where all firms recruit.  This means you have to go to them directly and identify the career sites or Human Resource pages at firms that interest you.  Some firms will post a job or internship on Handshake, but only a select few will actually come to campus to interview you.  I just want your expectations to be clear.

Part of researching the consulting field is knowing the players beyond the big names like McKinsey, Deloitte, BCG and Bain.  A huge resource to explore more and widen your perspective is the VAULT GuidesClick here to access in Handshake.

With all that said, here are 20+ firms that I suggest you keep on your radar now who have recruited at Midd in the past.  Here at CCI we are working to get them to post a job or internship in Handshake or make a visit to campus this fall:

  • Oliver Wyman
  • Kaiser Associates
  • Analysis Group
  • Cadent
  • Kantar
  • Compass Lexicon
  • Charles River Associates
  • Beacon Group
  • Brattle Group
  • Avascent
  • Treacy & Company
  • Clearview Healthcare Partners
  • Clarion Healthcare
  • Trinity
  • Putnam
  • AT Kearney
  • Accenture
  • Cornerstone Research
  • Edgeworth Economics
  • BTS
  • Seurat Group
  • Advisory Board
  • GLG
  • AlphaSights
  • Third Bridge
  • Bridgespan Group

Practice case interviews

These are a large part of the recruiting process for jobs, and internships too.  Two resources to use to become more familiar with this style are ManagementConsulted and PrepLounge.  Also those VAULT guides have case interview prep help as well.  The consulting field is competitive, so making it to the first round past the resume review is a challenge, but where it really can make a difference is how you perform on these case interviews.  Practice as much as possible.  Click here to browse the resources.

Enjoy the rest of summer and I look forward to supporting your success in finding opportunities in consulting.

Mini Law School at Colorado Law

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of our law school faculty, the eight-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is designed for non-lawyers, is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity, and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. Each week, a different member of our Mini Law School Faculty will discuss a “hot topic” in a different area of the law. The registration fee for the entire series is $100.  As a Midd student or alum, you can use discount code PreLaw2018 to get $50 off registration for the series.

This year’s topics include:

  • Who is the “Public” in Federal Public Lands?
  • Over-Incarceration in America – Safety or Scam?
  • Bad Lawyering
  • The Ever-Changing Face of Immigration Law
  • What is International Law?
  • The Government’s Speech and the Constitution
  • The Confrontation Clause
  • Artificial Intelligence and Law

Live lectures occur on Tuesday evenings September 11 through November 13. Class is from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. and is held in the Wittemyer Courtroom at the Wolf Law Building on the Boulder campus. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School is also livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado on the same dates and times. For those for whom neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have Livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.
