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.
