So, I am currently completing a masters program in mechanical engineering and maangement from a top university in Germany but orginally from outside of the EU. My grades from Masters are just okay, but not good enough from consutling standards. However, I have been a top performer throughout my other academic career and have an interesting record of extra curriculars (even in masters).
I don't have an internship expereince in consulting, but I worked for a top industrial giant with their supply chain as well as R&D product developement teams, for a total of 18 months. During this time, I suggessted multiple improvements to their supply chain and got an opportunity to present my product idea for a patent review.
I currently work as part time Quality Analyst in a VR based startup to suport myself. Also, my master thesis is focussed on consulting and is indeed a novel topic that I defined myself.
Local language is of an issue at this point of time, so I only apply to events and companies that require just english and nothing else. Still, I am not even getting a call for an interview or an event. I have been practising cases and solving multiple consulting assignements online. I have approached several professionals and recruiters who mentioned that I should definitely get interview calls after reviewing my CV. But I got none until now.
Kindly provide me some insights on how to proceed further. I am serious about a careeer in consutling. Thanks in advance.
