Are you ambitious, smart and creative? An independent worker with strong analytical skills? And a professional who can be resolute and adaptable at the same time and knows how to prioritise?
Chances are that you have been able to answer most, if not all, of these questions with ‘yes’. Did you know that these skills already meet half of the requirements to start a career as a strategy consultant? Have you ever considered working in this sector?
Consultants are hired to solve complex challenges for their clients. They give objective advice using their strong analytical skills. This is exactly the kind of professional challenge that matches the PhD profile! Not your scientific experience is needed for this job, but your all-round PhD skills. Read more.
But what is it actually like to work as a strategy consultant? And would you feel at home in the environment that consultants operate in?
