I've recently received an offer to join a strategy house as an Experienced Hire, where I will join at the 'Associate' level (rather than the "Business Analyst" level).
I don't know anyone currently working in consulting, so I thought that this forum would be a great place to get advice.
My background is working for a consumer goods firm in marketing roles.
I would be grateful for any tips on how best to transition from working in industry to working in consulting.
In particular, would like any high level advice on
a) What I can do to prepare before I join my new firm
b) Advice on how best to get a good reputation
c) Advice on how best to get staffed on suitable projects (keen to try other sectors as well as completing consumer goods projects)
Thanks very much,
