Ladies and Gents, I need some advice please on making the shift from industry to the consulting world?
I've two degrees (BSc & MSc) and have spent the last five years in Communications (global enterprise network equipment provider and a european mobile comms s/w SME) managing various projects for senior executives e.g. two business disposals, one acquisition, an outsource deal, general business development, problem solving i.e. revenue turnaround, building major alliances etc.
I've been reporting to CXO-level execs and have broad business and advisory skills but no specialisms like ACA or Six Sigma. I'd like to join a TMT team or operations improvement team in a consultancy.
My question - what is the best way to achieve this?
Recruitment agencies are just not helpful at the moment. Second question - go direct to consultancies and if so, which ones and will HR depts be of assistance?
