Let them know up front that you've got some advisory interest and ask to do some time in advisory.

I would say during your internship network with staff - partners with in the advisory group you are interested in and share your interest with them. It’s better to try to switch before you start full time because it can be hard to transfer internally. Transferring is possibly (I’ve done it from tax to advisory) but it will take a time. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!

You should just pull a partner aside in the middle and let him/her know. If you do well on your internship in sure they will consider it.

I just started working at a Digital Strategy Consulting Boutique firm but the company is in Europe and we work in another language entirely.

Should I switch or learn the language and stay here for another year? It's a small firm and the pay is not that great but good for beginners in the country. Any advice?

As I think through my undergrad experience, I realized that I did nothing remarkable. “So few so” that I don’t know what to write for the essay.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
