Asking on behalf of my cousin - Any tips for a transitioning Armor CPT that wants to do consulting in the DC/VA area? Really unsure what I want to do so just looking to get my feet wet with good experience.

Needs to network and prep a lot. Tell them to get a mentor through acp or veterati that can explain it. Booze Allen might be an easy route but it's not real consulting

Thanks! I’ll pass those along.

Tell them to check out jobs with Booz Allen. They have a huge federal presence. Veterans with security clearances get snatched up pretty quickly.

I’m a former Armor guy so always a soft spot. As others mentioned, the first question needs to be what type of consulting. If he doesn’t want to go to school and is aiming for immediate employment, federal work is usually an option. If he wants to maximize income and possibly exit options in the future, MBA and then strategy consulting is another option. If something more in the middle, Accenture offers a pretty straightforward JMO program

Depends on how long he has been in, education background, and specific military experience. I entered without doing an MBA but also already had an advanced degree. Agree with EY1 that the M7 MBA is the most common path.

Sure. First question, why consulting? Then your cousin needs to figure out what type of consulting then determine target companies. Then network like crazy.

Tell him to go to deloitte, Accenture & booz Allen websites to see what types of openings there are so he can start to figure out what sounds good. Hopefully he is already on LinkedIn. If not tell him to get on there quick.

I actually got myself upskilled and still got assigned into a project that doesn't have much of the technical requirements that I aspire to master. I had a very bad project the first year and my director had promised me that she will assign me with a project that suits my skills. But everything went down the drain :(

I’ve had about 7 years of management consulting (post MBA, top tier) and another 6-7 in Corporate Strategy, M&A and Bus Dev. Is going back to consulting an option? I welcome any words of advice

I wish people understood that not every aspect of a relationship needs to be a democracy. Sometimes, the relationship is a Caribbean Island and you are its dictator. You don't have to compromise on every single issue and not every compromise is going to be 50/50. Ideally, you perfectly align half of the time, 40% of the time you compromise, and 10% of the time it's a unilateral decision.

For instance, because of my career, where we live is a unilateral decision on my end for whoever I date.
