Hi PrepLounge Community,
Since graduating a Bachelor of Human Services (similar to Social Work) I have had 3.5 years experience in Queensland Government as a policy officer across a few departments, and then various roles within the community / NFP and employment / training sectors over the last 3 years.
I have not progressed into any management roles, but I was on a community organisation board for 4 years and my favourite part of this experience, was the strategy design and development.
I love the impact of my work within the NFP industry, but I am hungry for learning, development, progression and an opportunity to stretch my analytical and strategy brain.
I am looking into strategy consulting with firms such as Monitor Deloitte, and I am wondering whether or not I would even have a chance, considering my non-traditional background?
I am concerned about the case interviews as well (especially the mental math) and was wondering how I might be able to position myself well for this transition and if anyone here has done a similar transition?
