Top Consulting Tip: "Find a genuine interest in the problems that you are solving through casing! Often, the most overlooked factors in the case prep process are the ones that stand out the most in an interview: the way you present yourself, your confidence and enthusiasm as you navigate unfamiliar situations, and even how you respond to making a mistake, are all things that will be more memorable to your interviewer than your framework. Luckily, these all flow from being passionate about the questions that consulting answers. If you are struggling to find interest, think about consulting as a way to understand the world around you!."

Top Consulting Tip: "In preparing for the recruitment process, many will urge you to case and network with prospective firms as much as possible. Although this is quite important, the paramount, often overlooked, prerequisite to this is developing a radical understanding for who you are and what interests you. During the summer, take the necessary time to reflect, as this informs whether consulting is the right profession for you."

Top Consulting Tip: "Ask questions. Your most valuable resources are those in the Notre Dame community who have gone through the recruiting process. Utilize these assets and other resources on campus. There are countless events, programs, and projects uniquely designed to help you find success. If you take advantage of these opportunities, you will be more confident when interviews come along."

Top Consulting Tip: "When embarking on the recruitment process for consulting, you should try to find interest or enjoyment in casing, as it will make the process much easier, and you will cultivate a passion for the different problem-solving approaches. Be very diligent with your application deadlines, and be consistent, as casing requires a lot of practice to continue to improve, as most things in life. So, practice makes perfect! Furthermore, finding quality approaches to casing, and the overall interview process is vital, so treat every case as if you were in the interview. Finally, the process is a great way of finding yourself, whether that be your passions, interests, and what makes you unique to those around you."

Graduation Year: 2023
Major(s): Economics, Pre-Health
Hometown: Rochester, New York
LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/anoop-sunkara-0b30701a4
Top Consulting Tip: "Use your time at Notre Dame to find what you're passionate about and explore it to the fullest. If there isn't a resource for you on campus or if you find a problem that doesn't have a clear solution, then develop the necessary program and spearhead the solution. No matter where your passion lies, consulting is an avenue for you to implement your specific problem-solving skills. Focus on developing knowledge and skills that revolve around your interests, and you will naturally succeed in consulting."

Major(s): International Economics—Spanish
Hometown: Fairfield, Connecticut

Top Consulting Tip: "Don’t be concerned with what everyone else is doing. The beauty of consulting is that there’s no one linear track to get there. Invest time in things you’re passionate about and work hard to do well. Don’t cater your college experience towards what you think looks good on a resume because then it becomes disingenuous and unenjoyable."

Top Consulting Tip: "Make sure to surround yourself with a really strong support group. Not only can they help mentor and guide you along the way, but they can also provide a reprieve from the stressful work of case interview prep and recruiting–ensuring you are always at your best."

Michael Dillon

Hometown: LaGrange Park, Illinois
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-dillon-a27b241b4/
Top Consulting Tip: "My advice for people interested in consulting would be to start preparation early and to practice casing with people you do not know very well. Starting early will help ensure you are ready when the interviewing season begins, allowing you to focus more on your confidence rather than interview mechanics. Practicing with people you do not know well will allow you to better experience what an actual interview will be like, making you more comfortable in front of interviewers."

Juan Pablo Posada Garcia

Role: Director of Diversity Opportunities
Graduation Year: 2023
Major(s): Business Analytics
Hometown: Bogota, Colombia
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/juan-pablo-posada-775152191/
Top Consulting Tip: "Enjoy the consulting discernment and preparation process! Approaching it as a fun, interesting learning experience will make it much more enriching and less stressful. Try to be curious about each conversation, case, presentation, or interaction in general, as this will help you learn what you want and will also be helpful in your preparation. Lastly, since there really is no perfect formula for preparing for consulting recruiting, tailor this process to what suits you best. Talk to different people, go to events, read different recommendations, etc., and then come up with a plan that makes you feel comfortable and gives you a higher chance to succeed."
