I’m looking for a freelance hybrid social strategist / content creator (“light” content creation) for a long term, part time (~50%) gig on one of my clients for the entirety of 2021. I’m thinking this person should have between 5-10 years of experience, as they will be very client facing and need to be pretty legit in their work. If this sounds like you or you have a recommendation, dm me!

Hi Guys,

I am a new member on this platform.

I'm looking for a role change and wish to work in the consulting space (strategy/ management/supply chain/ business). I have 5 years of experience in the textile industry. I've had the opportunity to work on the manufacturing and sourcing side managing supply chain for international clients.

I'm currently providing freelance consulting services on project basis.

Any of your referrals to job openings at consulting firms would really help.

New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?

(BCG/Bain please comment)
Sometimes it’s funny to think that in McKinsey, we basically refer everyone client facing generally as consultants (either you are a BA, or an associate or a partner). Whichever level you are, we can introduce ourself easily as I’m a consultant.

But in BCG/Bain, Consultant is a level which is at the level of post MBA grads. For BCG/Bain friends: What do you all call yourself as a profession? I work as a xx?
