My Consulting Interview Process

Consulting recruiting season is here! Around this time four years ago was when I had my first round of interviews! Here was my process when pursuing the TDP at Accenture!

I do want to note that a lot can happen in four years. We even had the covid-19 pandemic! This will greatly change how firms approach the recruiting process to adapt and improve!

How was your process? What are you most scared of within the process? Let me know down below in the comments!

I also did make a video recently on how to prepare and succeed in the consulting recruitment process, so make sure to check for that on my YouTube channel!

I’m training for a triathlon!

I like hiking, but to be honest, I’m a bit of a crybaby when it comes to potentially tripping, slipping, or to put it simply, DYING. 😹

Meanwhile things like cliff diving, skydiving, and jetskiing don’t phase me.

I had a car accident during my sophomore year spring break that permanently damaged my ankle. I fractured it, and it was so bad, they suggested surgery. I ended up opting out of it due to long term complications and healed it naturally through a cast and boot for 3-4 months. All while dealing with Boston’s long stretch of a campus let alone not being able to wash my foot so you can already imagine the smells! 🤢

I always have been a strong swimmer and biker/cyclist, but I always hated running or anything that puts in a lot of pressure and impact on my ankle and even my joints like my knees. Hiking is included!

But now I’m facing my fears and seeing a personal trainer so I can finally train for a triathlon! Even if I walk it, I’m completely fine with that, but this is the first step!

Boy this journey has been crazy!

It’s messages like this that really brighten up my day and make what I’m doing worth it to do. I actually made a shift this month where I decreased my YouTube video release schedule to just once a week instead of twice and a podcast episode every other week rather than every week. I wanted to make a focus more on Technology Consulting Community’s resources, events, and programs.

We are kicking off our second wave of the pro Bono consulting program next week and so excited!

Recruitment season is also here, and make sure to check out my free content on YouTube, Instagram, podcast, and Technology Consulting Community (TCC)!

What is AI?

I’m by no means an expert in AI, but it is NOT perfect and will not take over humans. It would help speed processes, but it will still require human intervention.

There is data bias from AI and it’s only as good as your data was. There’s also a lot of bias with the data you put in, so it’s always very important to make sure you try to remove bias.

What did you think of the situation in the graphic? Are you surprised?

Covve Collaboration!

I used to be so so excited to get my own business cards when I was a kid, and when I joined Accenture, I was actually able to order my own! But now I have so many more than just that like my YouTube channel, Instagram, podcast, and Technology Consulting Community on top of Accenture, it’s now an outdated waste of paper.

Covve provides an alternative with NFC business cards! A simple tap on your smartphone and all of my information opens and enables you from saving my contact information directly with just a tap! Check out Covve!

P.S. This is also way more environmentally friendly! This is 2021. It’s a baseline requirement now.

Another Testimony!

Yet another success story! My very first coaching client back when I started in January actually had great response and got called for interviews and eventually landed an internship the past summer!

A few updates on my content while I’m here:
🌟To focus more on quality, I’m only going to release one video a week on my YouTube channel except on weeks I have a video podcast episode!
🌟I am also reducing my podcast episode schedule to every other week. This is also to improve the quality of the podcast recording as well!
🌟I am going full throttle on career coaching with the upcoming recruitment season as well as focusing on building up Technology Consulting Community!

How to make a GOOD first impression

When you think of a good impression, I think most people imagine a fake version of themselves – a “safer” version. But I disagree! I think it has a lot more about personal brand.

Whether it be in personal life or professional life, it’s so important to put your best foot forward. It gets difficult if your personality or things you like are seemingly different and “off” from what your job or the “crowd” you’ll be in.

Here are some ways you can put your best foot forward and show the best side of your authentic self! I also have a YouTube video and podcast episode coming out on this topic next Monday and Tuesday (respectively), so make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my podcast!

On the Bench?

Did you know, in consulting, it is possible to not always be working on a client project? We call that on the bench or on the beach as some firms call it.

You still get paid (for most firms), but don’t you wonder what you should be doing or how to kill time? Here is a list!

If this still confuses you, make sure to check out my staffing video on my YouTube channel!

What have you done on the bench?

Yet another success story! I wanted to share to you all of the success stories Technology Consulting Community is having!

For anyone who wants to work on their experiences and skills to land a tech consulting opportunity, we have one!

TCC’s pro bono consulting program is looking for a few people to help us end the project strong! If you’re looking for something to do to get real tech consulting experiences and skills within the next 2-3 months, this is for you! Deadline for this is Sunday, July 11!

The client is a non-profit based in LA: Kaimore, and we’ve been doing a huge revamp of their website, fundraising/social media, Salesforce, and data systems (Phase 2, so make sure to apply to be considered for that in September)!

If you have either of these two preferred experiences:

• Preferred experience in executing SEO marketing campaigns, ideally Google Ads and/or Tiktok, and generating reporting for key search metrics
• Someone with a lot of experience working with WordPress websites

Anyone interested must be able to commit 4-6 hours a week and join in on calls with PST time zone as that’s where the client is based in. If any of you resonate with this, fill out the application, DM me, and we’ll set up an interview! We have looked through the applications of those who already applied to the program and will also be reaching out to those who are qualified for an interview!
