#1 Getting into consulting???

smeg_bob

i was wondering if anyone could help me?

i am a 27 year old graduate, graduated last year in the uk

i have a 2:2 in software engineering and 20 ucas points, also i have 3-4 years experience in helpdesk and networking as i was working and studying at same time due to personal reasons.

what i would like to know is if it is at allpossible for me to get into consulting, this is what i have always wanted to do but i realise i do not have the academic requirements and that i am reaching old age, but is there any way i could break into the field, any help would be much appreciated

thanks

I think your judgement is probably right - neither your A level or degree result is high enough to impress the major players. Top strategy firms have hundreds of applicants with 28-30 UCAS points, 2:1s and 1sts from top universities. Firms like KPMG and E&Y have minimum requirements for applications of something like 24-26 UCAS points, but if your points score is 24 then you'll need to show something special to shine over those with more.

Why do you want to get into consulting?

i realise that my academic experience more than lets me down, what i would like to know is if it is at all possible to break into the consulting market.

I guess what i really would like to know is what i can do to make myself more employable, what skill sets i can get or professional certifications obtain

Or is it a case that i have no way of breaking into the market due to my academic background??

Have you thought about being an independent contractor? Potential earnings are better.

To my mind there are many possibilites and many consulting companies - Does one have to always scramble for the Big Guys and feel a failure when the desired job is not within reach. You sound like a hands on person - Look for a company that would appreciate your competencies and experience as is... Of course being an independent is always an option ....

List your competencies, bounce them off of people/organizations you find attractive and see what happens....Avoid template compliance at all costs! Remember all consulting really entails, is the process of customizing a solution for a specific client.... No big deal
