I have been a clinical research coordinator at UCSF for a reputable research group for the past 2 years and I need some advise as I am considering moving into healthcare consulting! I went to a non prestigious state college and got a degree in neuro with a low gpa. My former UCSF colleague went to healthcare consulting at ZS and recommended me for a Associate job there. However, I did not get the job. What’s the best thing I can do to get into healthcare consulting? I’d appreciate any advice!

More interview prep. Once you’re in the interview room, it’s all dependent on interview performance.

You can target and find referrals for other healthcare consulting firms like IQVIA, Putnam, Clearview. Or, you can also target other generalist firms and just focus your time within the healthcare practice internally.

Thanks! Any advice on how to get an interview? So far, I have not been able to land one. Although i’ve only applied to 2 positions at ZS and 1 position at IQVIA.
