Advice sought

I regularly read this forum for advice and information on entering a career in consultancy but have found that apart from general advice (which I am already aware of) no one seems willing to offer practical advice on how or who to approach to get into this industry (agencies initially appear enthusiastic but they then dwindle). I have noticed recently that the editor has begun responding to questions/comments in a bid to make the site more interactive and useful - would it not be possible for others to give people like me (and there are many) some constructive advice on entering the 'elite' world of consultancy? I remain optimistic as ever for a reply.

Regards

PJM: I'm not clear what extra advice you think you need. But let's try....have you worked out what you have to offer a consulting firm (industry knowledge, functional expertise etc) and drawn up an appropriate list of target firms? Have you gone into firms' websites and followed their application procedures?

Have you asked your old university careers office for introductions? Are you scouring the professional press and industry websites for advertisements? Have you tried speculative letters to (named) recruiting officers at firms? Have you run your CV by someone to check it is saying the right things about you? And above all, have you spoken to anyone in the industry who can give you honest advice as to whether you've got the entry requirements? If the answer to all the above is yes, then your failure to get into consulting right now is more a comment on the - very poor - state of the consulting market than on you. If you're still uncertain about matters, give me a call on +44 207 419 0909. Good luck. Don Leslie. PS There's nothing 'elite' about consultancy. Even my carpet fitter calls himself a floor-coverings consultant.
