Whether you’ve attended the Introduction to Consulting workshop series, attended the Consulting Trek, preparing for consulting interviews this summer or fall, or are just exploring consulting, this Level 1 workshop provides a great foundation to understanding what consultants do, how do they add value, what exactly does a recent liberal arts graduate do as a first year consultant, and what doors does it open. Deborah Resnick, ex-McKinsey consultant and MBACASE coach and trainer will help you get prepared and explore if consulting is right for you. She'll give you insights into what consultants do and how the case interview relates to the day-to-day job. You’ll also jump-start your preparations for summer/fall recruiting through interactive exercises, live cases, and opportunities to practice engaging communication and problem solving.
Cases are not just for consulting interviews anymore. Marketing, banking, private equity, high tech, healthcare and a variety of other industries are now using cases to differentiate candidates. So no matter where you interview, you'll want to be case interview ready! During this fast paced, full-day workshop you will be challenged to think beyond simple frameworks, participate often, and learn to handle a variety of analytical problems. Deborah will give you tactical tips to get the most out of any jobs/internship you are heading to this summer as well as a homework plan to follow to get ready for recruiting next September.
This is a foundation workshop that will help you understand about consulting and how to prepare for the summer/fall recruiting season.
There will be Level 2 workshop in early September to help hone your skills right before the interview process begins.
