experienced hire (hopefully)

Afternoon all, I trust you have had a stellar week.......

I preparing to apply to a few consultancies through the experienced hire route. I am 33, should degree and a level results be fully outlined? You can tell from the question that this is a touchy subject....I plan to accentuate my considerable commercial experience and, to an extent, to downplay the relevance of my academics...

anon to experienced hire (hopefully) (#1)

Consider each opportunity you might apply to on a case by case basis, fairly, and by playing to your strengths!

Some like Accenture only seem to look at you if you have a 2.1 - first degree (presumably from just about anywhere!).

Others take a more rounded view, so if you have some real experience in investment banking, set up Microsoft in your garage, or hold a Phd from Oxbridge, then they would still see the merit of your application.

Personally I'd apply to consultancies with a good mix of skills on the team. It tends to make for better teams (so if it's not your strength it's likely to be someone else's, and if it is a commercial question then you can offer something in return).

Real commercial experience does not always seem to get the coverage it should do these days. I can understand why it might not fit with a public sector consulting culture, but when there are private sector clients involved it seems a bit misguided to ignore someone with significant commercial experience.
