Career change for an engineer

 
#1 Career change for an engineer
25/08/2001 00:00

E

I am an industrial engineer currently employed in the electronics industry. I have fours years post graduate experience - mainly in process change and continuous improvement. I intend to become a consultant specialising in business process re-engineering. I also intend to do an MBA but would like to start working in the industry first. I have not been having much luck in my search so far - has anyone got any advice on where/how I should be looking for opportunities?

#2 Do your MBA first !!

My advice would be very simple - do your MBA first! Experienced hires with no consulting background or MBA face an uphill struggle (especially in the current market climate). There is a credibility gap when presenting you to clients (right or not) that will always make consultancies wary of employing you - and certainly liable to hire you only at junior levels. With a strong MBA behind you all credibility issues vanish and in a normal recruiting environment you will have firms fighting to recruit you. If you cannot get into a top school then you are in any case fighting a losing battle to get into consulting while the market is this fragile, since there are so many candidates out there right now.<br><br>Hope that helps.
