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!

Most consulting firms do follow a “recruitment season” to hire entry level, specifically from schools like college, university, or graduate programs.

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)!

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!

What Should You Do With Your First Paycheck as a Consultant: Advice for NEW Consultants

A subscriber asked me what they should spend on with their first paycheck as a consultant, and I’ve never been asked this question before! I thought it would be pretty interesting to answer, so I broke it down in a video!

Please keep in mind that I ALWAYS recommend analyzing your current financial situation FIRST whether it be dependents, loans, savings, and financial goals, then budgeting how much of your paycheck goes to them, and maximizing your tax deductibles. This video is for after all of that, what should you spend money on that would make your consulting life easier!

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?

What’s In My Wallet: Credit Cards Strategy for Consultants | CHASE & AMEX CREDIT CARDS

If you are interested in consulting, chances are, the travel that comes with the job appeals to you! How can you best utilize your credit cards to get the benefits, points, and earn it all for your own personal gain? While consulting firms pay for your travels, you may or may not be able to use your own credit cards (and later get reimbursed) so you could get your personal points and use the perks!

I’ve been a huge fan of the Chase Ultimate Rewards credit card ecosystem, so check it out!

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!
