I’m currently a tech/solutions consultant and trying to break into Management consulting. Currently three years in my role but get rejected immediately for most applications. Any tips on how to improve my chances? Skills to learn? Certificates that are worth it?

Out of interest why the move from tech? I feel like that where the biggest demand is going to be moving forward

Completely get that. Have a look at product manager/consultant roles in tech. A marketing background would probably be quite favourable. Might not be exactly what you’re looking for but might be a good stepping stone.

Well what firm are you coming from and what firms are you applying to?

Look at the same qualifications as business analysts take, but also look at things like design thinking, business design, organisational change management, etc.

Then you need to demonstrate the skills key to management consulting. Framing problems, Business cases, change management, process improvement, organisational design, etc.

I feel you OP, have had similar thoughts for a while.

Hi recruiters!
I recently quit my job at a big tech company with good name for a better job at a younger but still famous tech company. Now, 3 months later I’m not sure that the new role is as interesting as they sold it to me. I know I have to give it sometime and talk to my manager (I have shared my concerns with him), but precisely because of his answers, now I’m considering looking for another job. I truly want to be in a role with lots of impact. How should I apply to jobs? Cont in comment
