What are my chances?

 
#1 What are my chances?
06/06/2011 11:48

Interested

Hi,

I have an academic background with a Bsc.(Hons), a PhD. in the structural biology and drug design field and at present have a 1 year contract as a post-doctoral fellow. I currently have 7 peer-reviewed publications. I am looking at possibly moving from academia, and science consultancy as interested me.

I am unsure, however, of the chances I have, with my qualifications and experience, to appear employable to a consultancy firm.

I do not know anyone in the field, and so my perspectives have been gained from web searches.

I would be grateful for any advice from all, especially those who may have started as I may be.

Thank you...

Try Mckinsey&Company.

I am sure there are a lot of other consultancies that you can target.

All the best.

Dr Folarin to Interested (#1)

Dear Interested,

My Phd is in Biomedical Engineering, and I am currently a Senior Consultant after 4 years in consultancy. In all honesty, I think it will be tougher for you than for some others, however that being said I think that it is by no means impossible.

What I suggest is that you write a business focused CV and covering letter, i.e one where you translate your learning's into £ signs. I am not that familiar with your area of expertise, but I suggest you highlight the transferability of all your skills and all you knowledge to specific therapeutic areas.

In terms of consultancies to target, I would say:

-PA Consulting (they are currently recruiting people with your background, trust me, I have had to dodge a few of their recruiters!)

-ZS Associates (Niche but highly rated)

-IMS (Highly rated, would be a good entry point, although not strictly a management consultancy, if you can speak to someone who recruits for the thought leadership division, it will make the application process easier)

Good luck

F
