FAQ In Consulting

These are the three most common questions I get about consulting! The difficult part about consulting is that your experience really differs by location, firm, area and specialty. Ask anyone and they will say “it depends!“ These are generalized answers and I always recommend you to network to get a holistic view for your targeted area!

It is also excellent for people who are still trying to figure out what they want to do! I actually did consulting to figure out what I wanted to do with tech while having exposure to many different companies, industries and people!

TRAVEL VLOG: Nashville, Chattanooga, Atlanta | Broadway, Hot Chicken, Ruby Falls, & Lookout Mountain

After my last week at Accenture, Addison and I went on a trip to Nashville, Chattanooga, and Atlanta for fun! We explored Downtown Nashville, Vanderbilt University, and Broadway (and eating hot chicken at Hattie B’s!), then we went to Chattanooga for Ruby Falls, Incline Railway, Lookout Mountain, and Point Park! We then went to Atlanta and then headed back home!

Why I Pursued Consulting

Here are the reasons why I pursued consulting and this could be the reason why you should too! Consulting can provide a wealth of experience and some can argue that one year in consulting would provide more experience than one year in a non-consulting role. Would you agree?

Why are you pursuing consulting? Would you consider consulting after seeing why I pursued consulting?

What is this chip shortage?

You probably heard about this, but what exactly is going on?

I was curious myself since some products I was trying to buy had a delay due to this. Even laptops are! Tech startups are also struggling too if they didn’t have much pull on the semiconductor market and suppliers.

My true authentic self

Let me tell you a secret! I actually hate taking photos of myself which is why I keep using old photos, but I know I really should try to show more of myself here to let people know who I am! The irony when I take photos of myself for YouTube thumbnails. 😹

But let’s be real, I don’t actually look like this on a normal day because I only wear makeup for my YouTube videos! https://youtube.com/c/ChristineWong This is actually a rare moment I even wore makeup going outside! I mostly wear makeup if I’m filming and I happened to wear makeup this particular day because I was filming a weekend in my life. 😂

But I have to say my brows have always been lacking and I was born with super sparse brows and I also included a photo with absolutely no makeup. I’ve had micropigmentation done 3 years ago, so my brows are really catfishing you. 😂😂😂

Do you show your true self? Do you wear makeup? Honestly, while I’m all about natural beauty (let’s be real, it’s because I’m lazy and suck at makeup), I also believe in creative and personal expression, so if you love a full face of makeup, go for it! The most I do is really my brows before I did micropigmentation, but what are you insecure about? Do you embrace it or do you fight it?

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!

How Not to Give a F*ck: Achieve More by Caring Less!

Something I pride in a lot about myself that really helped me achieve as much as I was able to at this point is simply how I don’t give a f*ck. Because of that, I can recover very fast and start taking action to improve, reinvent, or pivot. I don’t exactly have a method per se, but I broke down what goes on in my head into 5 digestible steps and hopefully this can help you as well! I think a lot of times, we are so self-critical about ourselves or we care too much, but sometimes we spend so much time thinking we don’t act!
