For graduate trainees, consulting is quickly becoming a highly sought-after career choice. To learn more about how your graduate training can help you succeed in a traditionally business-dominated field, join us at our two-part panel series: What’s Consulting?
What’s Consulting? is a two-part panel series introducing graduate students to consulting. Held over two days, Part 1: The Journey to Consulting – features consultants from top consulting firms. Part 2: Pros of Pro-Bono Consulting – features representatives from pro-bono consulting firms.
Through these two events, attendees will learn how they can leverage their graduate school experience to transition into consulting, as well identify pro-bono consulting opportunities that can help them land the job.
