Author of Getting Consulting Jobs in India
Here is the scene : Global recession.... banks closing down, consulting firms had frozen hiring, companies do not want to sponsor visas for international students .....
Americans were finding it tough to get normal jobs...in such an environment an Indian student was able to interview with Goldman Sachs, UBS, The Parthenon Group, Monitor, Deloitte, Capgemini, Micro-strategy, Microsoft, Facebook and Blackrock to name a few...
Surely - cannot attribute this to the "favourable" economic conditions. I am offering you well researched and executed strategies to unlock the secret of a making a resume that a recruiter cannot keep down, or ways to crack an interview such that a second round call is inevitable.
Getting Consulting Jobs in India
2011 - Present
Getting into consulting needs a robust strategy - It is the perfect balance between brain (strategy and planning) and brawn (intellectual horsepower). The need for a strategic road map is pronounced when you are an international student on an Ivy league campus in the US. The book offers real life insights that I implemented to crack into the mystical world of management consulting (and a ton of other interviews) in arguably the most challenging economic time in the last century- i.e. the Global Financial Crisis. I also offer consulting for mock interviews and case prep.
