I've just graduated from uni and am really passionate about getting into consultancy, specifically business improvement/business systems/IT side of consultancy.
The only trouble is, I have only 250 UCAS points and a 2:2 degree (only a couple % off a 2:1).
I haven't applied for any graduate programmes because of my academics, is there any chance for me in consultancy at all!? My academics also mean that I can't even get onto work experience schemes... so I'm finding it extremely difficult to break into the industry.
Has anyone got any advice on this???
I do have a year's experience in a large company (British Nuclear Group) where I gained many skills with a specific focus on project management. And collectively I have 2 years experience from other projects I have undertaken whilst at University.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
