Description: The competition for jobs in the Management Consulting industry is fierce; it has been estimated that less than 2% of global applicants receive a first round interview, and less than 1% receive offers for full time employment. So how do you differentiate yourself enough in your application to land an interview, and what does it take to succeed in the dreaded “case interview”?
Join our Webinar led by Management Consulting recruiting expert, Darren Lafreniere, as he walks you through every step of the consulting recruiting value chain – from conducting due diligence on the industry, to networking with the firms, developing consulting specific resumes and cover letters and learning how to “crack the case.”
