How to Excel on Big 4 Consultant Programme?

 
#1 How to Excel on Big 4 Consultant Programme?

ChronicConsultant

Hi all,

I'm going to be starting the a graduate consultant programme in Sept for one of the big 4 (London). I'll be undertaking the CIMA certificate for the first year.

Just wanted to know what things I should be doing on the 2 year programme to stand out from my peers? My plans are to hopefully move to one of the offices in New York after 2 year to gain some international experience, but that's wishful thinking more than anything.

Also, is there anything I could be doing byway of preparation?

Thanks

TheConsultingCoach to ChronicConsultant (#1)

1) Show initiative- do what your project manager asks of you and then have a think about what he or she will ask you to do next (based on this) and have a first go at doing this

2) Offer to help out- offer to help with things on the project that aren't directly your responsibility (e.g., proof reading a deck before a SteerCo, helping a colleague with an analysis). This will be noticed and will reflect well on you as well as helping you develop faster

3) Seek out and act on feedback- on every project, book a 15 minute feedback session weekly with your project manager and every 2 weeks with the partner to ask them what you could do better and make a point of acting on this

In terms of preparing, I don't think there's anything you can usefully do. Use the time to go on holiday and relax. If you feel you absolutely must do something, spend some time working on your Excel and PPT skills
