Hi, I'm starting my new role as a strategy consultant in a few days. I'm wondering how to utilize some part of my weekend time to further improve my consulting skillsets. Some of the key skillset I would like to improve would be: English (speaking), structuring, hypothesis generation, and industry insight.
I'm considering to continue to do cases once per week to keep my consulting skills sharp and also practice English communication. I feel that casing trains the ability to react fast and think in a structured way. But I'm not sure whether these skill sets are being trained on the job on a daily basis.
Would like to hear your advice on: is it practical and suggested to keep doing case interviews to improve skillsets instead of preparing for interviews? Are there any other better ways to improve consulting skillset? Thanks a lot for your advice!
