Paul McGuire

I have 7 years Project Management experience working in the Automotive, International HR and Telecoms industries. My forte is running projects from initial start-up through to close-out. My current contract with Ford is coming to an end and I want to persue a career in Management Consulting. Can someone please offer some advice of what my next steps should be. I understand the market is sluggish, but feel I have a lot to offer a company with my current experience. Many Thanks

Paul, given the number of candidates in the market right now I would suggest the following - in order of priority:<br><br>

1. use any contacts you have at the consultancies to get your CV personally recommended to HR managers<br>

2. select one or two specialist recruitment consultancies to represent you - most can be found on our appointments pages. Be selective as no recruitment firm will be excited about working with a candidate who is already dealing with several of their competitors<br>

3. apply direct to consultancies where you and the recruitment agencies you are using have no personal contacts, preferably after having spoken with someone in HR to identify what your key selling points will be for any available roles.<br><br>

Good luck with the applications, Tony

Paul,

Tony's advice ideally would work. However, I know for a fact that the major management consultancies at the moment have frozen all recruitment. I work in one of the big 5 and I tried recently to send a friend's CV to my HR, who is a close friend of mine. Although, his CV is exceptional and a year ago his application would have been succeful,he wasn't even called for an interview. Do not despair, if the responses you get are not what you expected, hopefully the market will pick up sooner rather than later. Keep also in mind that the Big 5 still make redundancies, even though this is not communicated to the press.
