Isn't business development in consulting what principals and partners do?

Yes. I just did it. Management consulting to BD in industry. For the newbs - BD in industry is more like corporate development. BD is fundamentally the same between consulting and industry, but instead of a partners developing new products (selling more work) the team models out a new business/idea to determine if it is economically viable

And in industry, it's definitely doable.

Ok, thanks, @KPMG1, what industry do you work in now? And what level did you do the jump at?

SA --> analyst. Reporting to the executive team, though. I'm in the energy space.

Landed a job at big4. Made a honest mistake on my cv and the starting date of one of my internships is a month off...do i fill in the correct date for the screening company or do i stick to the date on my cv? The internship company could verify for me that the date on my cv is correct.

Was shopping for a friend’s birthday and realised that consulting is a lot like finding a thoughtful gift for someone -

a. The recipient (client) doesn’t always know what they want
b. We try to structure the problem statement and identify a white space where we can add value
c. We spend a lot of time on packaging (!!)
d. The recipient’s reaction isn’t always in our hands
