The right work experince for strategy consulting?

 
#1 The right work experince for strategy consulting?

Hi all, I'm graduating this year and I’m really keen on pursuing a career in strategy consulting (either with a strategy firm or with a generalist firm involved in strategy). I’m planning on getting 2-3 years business experience before going into consulting, and was wondering what type of work would put me in the best position either to go straight into consulting (as an analyst), or to get a place at a quality business school, before moving into the industry. Any advice would be gratefully received.

If you go for a corporate role, it is unlikely that after 2-3 years, you would be playing at a level that would be a significant help in getting into Strategy Consulting - although it would give you a modicum of credibility in terms of having actually "done" something. If I were you, I would aim to get involved in general business consulting in the first instance. You will probably get more scope for broad development in a smaller firm, rather than in one of the big ones...

I really have to ask why you're not considering pursuing a consulting position from the start? It is, perhaps unsurprisingly, by far the best way to get in - even if you need to take a year off and reapply for the graduate positions. If you don't want too, or are unsuccessful (it is very competitive), seriously considering doing Tax/Audit in a Big 4 accountancy firm or doing Corporate Finance.

Hi Anon, I totally agree that this would be by far the best way to get in, and it would certainly be my first preference. The concern I have is that although I am expecting a 1st or a high 2:1, it is not from one of the better universities. I get the impression that most consultancy firms look for candidates from the top tier universities, and as you say, it does seem very competitive. Having said this, I am planning to apply for several graduate consulting positions before pursuing another route, but to be honest I’m a little pessimistic. Thanks for the advice about tax/audit with the Big 4, may be a good option.
