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!

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!

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?

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 You Need to Know About Consulting | Reasons WHY Consulting Isn’t For You

Consulting is among one of the best careers you can get into because of what you can learn, the diversity of experiences, and how there are many exit opportunities who want the highly coveted skills and experiences you get, but this video will go into what you need to know about consulting and specifically the reasons WHY consulting isn’t for you. Also this video kind of seems a little ranty, but even if you love your job, you’ll still have gripes with it!

Consulting is not for everyone. I get a lot of questions from people who are worried about the stress, travel, work life balance, and so forth, and I’ll go into a little more in depth on what it’s truly like and go into the horrors of the career. These are not reflecting of all consultants’ experiences because some may not travel or some have great work life balance! But these are considerations. If these do matter to you, vet out for a consulting firm for you and don’t just go straight for MBB, Big 4 or big firms out there without doing your research. A lot of boutique firms actually address a lot of these!

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!

Pivoting into Technology Consulting as an Experienced Hire | HOW TO BECOME A TECHNOLOGY CONSULTANT

I get asked this question a lot and while a lot are from students, I do get asked this question a lot by people already out in the industry on how they can get started. This is the video for you!

For those who don’t know, experienced hire is mostly used for anyone who has had work experience outside of undergraduate or graduate studies. Someone who has one year of experience after college and someone who has 30 years of experience are both considered experienced hires. Both have their own advantages and challenges! If you are still stuck, comment down below on your situation and I can help you out or join me on my free coaching program here on the YouTube channel or DM me for 1-on-1 private coaching!

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!
