Do you already have experience in consulting? If you, try building an online community with American consultants. Ask for advice/referrals.

Stay knowledgable on trends in the US market. Apply to internships and entry level jobs.

All about connections. Start building/nurturing your network ASAP.

If you already have experience has a consultant that will help. Networking through LinkedIn helps. I also try to join some Facebook groups as well. Sometimes, people will put job ads in those groups. Good luck!

What is the most useful technical or soft skills for any mechanical engineer to have where you work? I’m curious to know what really matters for everyone and what makes a big impact on the team and business.

Specifics if you can; CAD tools, simulation, CAD speed or proficiency, industry or standards knowledge, GD&T, certifications, Microsoft Excel, presentation skills, technical writing, project management, self organization, great communication, teaching ability, relationship building, etc.

Has anyone wanted to get into consulting but struggled, I have done everything from networking, to having a referral, having a good gpa (non-target school), editing my resume and following up yet no response. I can’t help but feel really disappointed - Is it time to give up? please advice

I’ve been employed across manufacturing, hospitality & retail industries .
Most of my working life of 20 yrs I’ve worked in a senior role within the scope of Biz Devlpmnt & Ops.
I’ve worked / lives in South Asia (14 yrs), 6 yrs in UK and now working in Canada over a year . I want to climb up the corporate ladder in hospitality but have a lot to offer in the Apparel industry which was where I learnt my BD skills working closely with global retailers.2 Whom / where do I take my know how ?

I’m currently one of the largest media agencies and we don’t have a comms practice. I’ve applied for connections strategy roles at other agencies but haven’t heard anything back. Looking at my skill set and the job description they seem very aligned. Is it a super competitive field? Where is the most opportunity - creative, media or PR agencies? Is this a dying role and that’s why there aren’t larger teams/available positions?
