Glad to have found this website for the prepation and have already found a couple of nice mates to work with.
However my current situation is the following and I'd like to have your thoughts on it:
After my engineering degree I have worked a year abroad (in consulting in technology) and realised I really wanted to nail it down to strategy consulting. Thus I joined a corporate strategy master in a top economic institution in France. All in all, I have quite a good student loan and after this master I couldn't take one or two months off to crack down on my preparation for the biggest consulting firms. I was however doing an internship in a digital strategy consulting firm and they wanted me to stay so made me an offer that I turned down but came back with a nice project in London.
I accepted it but changed it for UK short-term contract. Now I got the financial stability to be fully prepared but the timing will be:
- End of contract in March
- 1/2 month of full preparation
- 1/2 months of applications
Meaning that all in all, with some cushion, if successful, I might be in the final rounds around June/July.
I am a little bit skeptical as I guess like in every industry, the summer period is likely to be flatter.
Do you think I should rework on the planning or it might be okay anyway? I will specifically look for the london offices of the consulting firms.
Many thanks for your thoughts,
