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!

Consulting College Recruitment Season is Here! What should you do? |CAREER COACHING WITH CHRISTINE

Listen to the full episode here: https://linktr.ee/christinepodcast

Most consulting firms do follow a “recruitment season” to hire entry level, specifically from schools like college, university, or graduate programs. So many people ask me what they should prepare or how should they even get started, so here’s all of my advice jam packed into one video so you can get that job offer!

Testimonial

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)!

If you are interested in a career in technology consulting, make sure to join TCC’s Facebook group, Clubhouse, and Discord server to join the discussions on how to launch and grow your career in technology consulting! We also have free events, programs, activities, and workshops.

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?

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!

A STRESSFUL Training & Certification Work Week in My Life as a Technology Consultant

If you’re in consulting, you’ll no doubt have to do training and also pursue certifications. In this vlog, I am pursuing (and eventually passed!) Workday’s Advanced Reporting Certification. It’s tough balancing client work, training, the homework an studying that comes with it, and even personal life, so hopefully this will show you a true account on a work week in my life as a technology consultant.

Do you need to code?

I did an Instagram reel before on 8 tech jobs without coding, and unfortunately the caption (that had a lot of tons of caveats and notes) dropped due to a glitch on Instagram, but many thought the roles I mentioned did require coding so I made this instead.

I still think coding is a very important skill to have regardless if it requires coding or not because it can help you with understanding the role and work or to actually do the work itself.

As someone who didn’t study computer science, there are many ways you can use your resources in school, out of school, on the job or internship, or around you. Free or not! This is how I got my experience and how you can as well! Even if my current job does not require coding, the logical thinking of understanding how code performs helps a lot in structuring your thinking interacting with a system.

Interviewee Led Tech Case Interview | CAREER COACHING WITH CHRISTINE

Follow Along! In today’s video, we go through a real mock interview with Kevin on an interviewee led tech case interview! It is good to do this with a partner as this may be a bit hard being very interactive, but make sure your partner knows what goes into an interviewee led tech case interview and is equipped to answer your questions.

Types of Consulting

As a technology consultant at Accenture, of course I have preferences to tech, but I don’t think many people realize there are more to consulting than just management and strategy consulting. These are the biggest buckets in consulting, but there are still subsets of consulting under them as well. Some can even be focused on industries like healthcare or more specialized as well like change management.

Let me know in the comments which one you’re interested in pursuing or if you already are a consultant! Curious as to why it speaks to you as well!
