I'm a PhD Computer Engineering: do I have any chance?

 
#1 I'm a PhD Computer Engineering: do I have any chance?

Hi! I recently got my PhD Computer Engineering. I'd like to enter the consultancy world, but I'm kind of confused since I don't actually know whether my skills could meet what is required of a consultant. On the one hand, I have very good university records but I am 32! On the other hand, I think of myself as having more generalist than specialized skills. As a matter of fact, due to my education, I have a speculative and analytical mind but I don't feel like having specific skills as a computer engineer/scientist. Therefore my main questions are the following: 1. Is there room for a "thinker" in consultancy? Do you think I've got any chance to enter this world? Many thanks in advance for any help! Best regards, Piermarco

It may sound heretical, but have you considered dropping the

PhD from your academic credentials? You may find that the range of opportunities for Master's level consultants is actually a bit

broader, and that the extra credentials may either intimidate potential employers or over-qualify you for engagements which would otherwise refine your practice. This would not necessarily be a permanent solution, obviously, but the freedom of action

could prove useful while you're weighing areas of specialization.

Thank you, Thom. Your considerations are of a great value: I'll probably do as you suggest! Cheers, Piermarco

Just a question: how do you erase the X years it took you to get the PhD from your CV? Mine will be in Computer Science.

Thank you CompiPhD! Yours is an appropriate question. I don't have the answer though. As a matter of fact I can't remove those X years!!! Does anybody has a hint?
