Consultancy via oil&gas engineering

 
#1 Consultancy via oil&gas engineering

Hi, I am really interested in getting into the consultancy business. I am taking the long way in. I am a Bachelor's Honours qualified in both Civil Engineering and Strategic Management. I have decided to do "time" in oil and gas engineering to get my Engineering Chartership and world experience before I apply for consultancy positions. It has been 2 years now and I intend to continue until the downturn ends. My question is: Is my Engineering path the best way to approach a start in management consultancy? - Thanks, I am becoming jaded about my approach.

Hi

I think it is one way in! I don't think your 'subject' matters that much as long as you demonstrate the core skills a consultant needs e.g. analytical skills, people skills etc

IN terms of engineering.....I work as a consultant at Mouchel, which orginally focused on engineering but now has a consultancy arm. People in the consultancy arm come from engineering backgrounds (transfers within Mouchel and new recruits) and other backgrounds and we work with public sector companies and private companies, some in oil and gas. See www.mouchel.com.

Hope this helps!

Chloe

I'm a C.Eng with 10 years international consulting experience within the Oil/Gas, PetroChem, Mining/Metals, Utilities and Infrastructure sectors - all from the design-build-operate side of the fence. All I can say is stick at it, your path is far superior to just being an MC with a big firm.

I ended up going my own way and consult directly to owner-operators as an independent - don't think you have to be with a big firm to be a successful consultant...

Sparky, I would be interested to talk to somebody who has done what I am trying to achieve. My email is adrianodorisio@hotmail.com I would love to pick your brain on this issue. Especially now that the consulting market is so low. Otherwise I may just end up back at university doing the MBA(Petroleum Management). Cheers
