that strategy consultants do....as I look into this more and more all the material I read gives me the standardized answers of; numerous sectors of specialization, work can be very varied.
Even "a typical day" lists tend to quote things such as client meetings, models, projects.
Can someone actually tell what it is an analyst would be expected to know from day one? Is it valuation/financial modeling (DCF, EBITDA..?) or is it marketing/management strategy/application of IT? (Very generalized phrases in their own right).
I seem to be getting straight answers from every other industry including banking/finance about the very specific technical knowledge that would be needed when applying as an analyst.
I would appreciate it if some one who has been through the process tell me how it is that one can demonstrate the ins and outs of the work done to a prospective firm.
