Why another blog about management consulting?

For quite some time I have found myself "googling" and "googling" looking for some kind of real inside insight into the consulting world. Specifically, how the hell do I get a job in consulting? What kinds of things are the big 4 firms really looking for? What happens behind the doors of the interview? How are offers made?

For the most part I haven't seen anything that was really sufficient and that really answered the question I had before I started my "googling" quest. To try and do my part to right this egregious wrong, I decided that it is my duty to post at least the bits and parts of my experience thus far to try and shed some light on what the process of applying, interviewing, and ultimately landing a position in strategy/management consulting is like.

Because of my limitations with time, I probably won't update the blog every day or even every other day....probably every week to few weeks once I regurgitate the knowledge I have built up over the last few years.

If you have questions for me, please ask....I would like to make this an interactive experience!


  1. I have consistently received rejection letters from not only big 4 but some of the boutique consulting firms. I am an MD-PhD with no business experience.
    What do you suggest?

  2. Is it possible for you to review my CV/cover letter??

  3. I may adopt some of these ideas. Already using many of them but got some interesting in your post.. Thanks

  4. Thank you for posting the great content…I was looking for something like this…I found it quiet interesting, hopefully you will keep posting such blogs….Keep sharing
