Should I put my consulting title on my resume or use the role I had on my projects? For example, instead of "Associate Consultant", should I describe my title as "Delivery Lead" as this is the role I have played on most of my projects?

I’d put Delivery Lead - Associate Consultant, gives context to hiring managers and includes your actual title

like

Associate consultant in title, then delivery lead in the sub-bullets to describe some of the projects you worked on (with anonymizing the client)

Perfect, that is my current approach. Just wanted to check if folks do it differently

Do not change your title to something it wasn’t. It will get flagged in background checks and you will have a bad time

Definitely do it. It will showcase ur skillsets on various projects.

I always put my function in front of my title “Strategy Analyst” “Management Analyst” Because I’m only an analyst but need to compensate

Just curious - how can a AC be Delivery Lead?

I put the title that they sold me. I came in and they gave me an offer on this title. If the background check has a minor issue after we’ve had the whole interview process, it usually isn’t too bad.

Nahhh put what sounds good

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools .

Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
