Using preparation consultant?

 
#1 Using preparation consultant?

Hi guys,

I am working in IT and telecoms industry in Singapore for 11 years without MBA. I am applying to consulting firms (MBB and rest) in Indonesian offices where I am from. Consulting is hot in Indonesia and other SEA countries now.

I studied from Cosentino, Victor Cheng (both are not good I think) and Ohrvall's (better than the other 2) books, and practiced with people for about 30 cases and now I feel fine though sometimes I make mistakes in cases, just need to be more careful I guess.

I also have been connecting with partners and consultants in my target firms (MBB, ATK, Deloitte, S&, RB) and let them review my resume and I got positive responses from most of them.

I was dinged by BCG after first round and the feedback was I was slow in the case, and my recommendation sounds too "engineering". It needed to be richer, he said. I was nervous in the case after a difficult test (there was a 45-min test before 45-min interview). The interviewer was 10 minutes late and asked only 2 short fit questions and moved to the case.

Now I am considering to hire a preparation consultant, I am considering firmsconsulting(dot)com or managementconsulted(dot)com.

Do you guys think those prep consultants are useful or are they bullshit? If they are useful, which one is good?

Thanks a lot.

Your best bet would be to concentrate on TMT-centric consulting firms like Delta Partners. Or the likes of Sofrecom and DTC. Or Huawei even. Get in, develop the necessary consulting skills, then decide where you want to go from there.

Hi Camster, I have no problems getting interviews in management consulting firms in my target offices. I am not considering TMT firms. Now I only want to improve my interview skills.
