Basically just need a connection with a current employee higher up in the firm that can hook you up with a recruiter and possibly go to bat for you. Keep networking and talking to people that have successfully made it in consulting!

I am currently unemployed (but looking) an opportunity to consult has potentially fallen into my lap. Before I shut it down for a lack of experience, I want to know if it's something that I can even do. It's a very very small company, not even 3 FTE. But they are looking for someone to come in, create a Handbook(I can do that), provide benefits, etc.

Is that difficult to implement? I can't imagine it being so, but I don't want to set myself up to fail.

Hey guys, I’m kinda having an existential crisis and I would appreciate some advice. I’m going to work for B4 audit in a big city but I’m having doubts.1) being because I’ve been told first hand that the job of auditing sucks and the pay sucks, and 2) exit ops aren’t as good as consultants or finance people. I’m thinking of sticking it out in audit until sr, and maybe going to valuations after? Or should I try to consulting in a year? Is there anyone who’s been where I am? I hate acct tbh. Thx!
