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!

Everything About My Accenture Experience as a Technology Consultant

I always get asked if I liked Accenture, what did I do, how was my experience, all those questions, but I never really answered it in a video because it’s always an evolving answer, but now that I left, I give a very detailed and thorough answer! Many people ask me for a coffee chat to talk about my experience at Accenture, so here it is all in one video! Please note that this is just my experience, and I highly recommend you that network around with people at Accenture for the particular office, business unit and even role to really learn how your experience could be like or learn from many different people if you want to get a sense of Accenture as a whole!

How Covid affected consulting

The pandemic has changed the landscape of how we see work of the world. Consulting is no different! A lot of what consulting was known for was traveling to the client and sometimes spending more time sleeping in a hotel than in your own home. Pandemic has shifted firms and clients to realize you can do a lot virtually or at least reduce the travel. It also shifted priorities around from clients to prioritize moving to the cloud!

Some have even reevaluated their priorities and can’t handle the grind and travel anymore and left! Or even their firm or client travel has changed to reduce travel and that becomes a reason to stay! It’s different for everyone.

Thoughts? How has Covid affect you in consulting or do you have any hesitations entering into consulting because of these changes? Let me know!
