I don’t know anyone who’s used a headhunter to get into consulting. It’s always to get out. Having a headhunter won’t give you any leverage at consulting firms, they don’t pay headhunters for finding people

Many of my peers and friends have used them to land jobs on the client side successfully, so they work for that, at least.

What do you think a headhunter can do for you that you can’t do for yourself? Especially considering there’s really only a handful of reputable mgmt consulting firms nationwide.

I do SAP carve-outs on M&A projects. Ideally, I’d like to do supply chain advisory or M&A/PE strategy.
