Consulting Top Tip: "You cannot get what you are not prepared to accept. You claim what is yours. The way I see it: if I don't trust in myself, people are misusing their time trusting me. We all started with the basics. The time and effort put into preparing is necessary. The tangential quest to understand how important and unique you are is indispensable. There is a learning curve in casing which can reach stagnation once you know what you are doing, yet you are not letting your creativity, personality, and confidence flow. You don't know or need to know everything. All you need to know is what to ask for and how to ask for it. Never bet against yourself, not even in your mind."

Top Consulting Tip: "The consulting discernment process involves both the head and the heart. It can be easy to make decisions based on name, rankings, industry, work type, and what everyone else is doing. Looking at these are definitely important. But remember that after you recruit you actually have to work at the firm. Find a place that aligns with your values, with people that you enjoy and respect, and that will make you excited to go to work everyday."

Top Consulting Tip: "Make sure that you truly enjoy or are interested in the types of issues and questions that come up in consulting case prep. The questions and cases that come up during the case prep process very closely mirror the type of questions you will be asked to think about on an every day basis on the job."

Top Consulting Tip: "I believe that there are three talents that a consulting firm seeks to find. One is to be logical, second is to have a positive influence with "presence," and third is to have leadership. While exploring different consulting firms, try to reflect upon your experiences if you possess the following talents and continue to build up upon your strengths and weaknesses. Be strategic about shining these aspects by showing who you uniquely are. I'll guarantee that you will not regret your dedication through the process as you'll enjoy so much and grow so fast! "

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: "Interview preparation is a marathon, not a sprint. It is more beneficial to practice 20 cases over a couple of months than it is to practice the same 20 cases in the two weeks leading up to your interview. Spacing out your preparation truly allows you to reflect on how you performed in your last case and make meaningful changes for your next one. You will also feel much more comfortable and confident during the week of your interview knowing you have few, if any, modifications to make to how you case. This is easier said than done, however, and I recommend finding a way to have others hold you accountable (i.e. make a weekly schedule with a couple casing buddies)."
