I have been a consultant at BCG for 2.5 years, transitioning successfully into consulting after my PhD in the social sciences.

Particularly if you have a non-business background, I can give you an edge over your peers. With my non-business PhD background, I understand your challenges and - if you are anything like me - uncertainties. Although 80% of the preparation will be the same as that of your business peers, in this highly competitive industry of ours, getting the 20% right is what stands between you and the offer. The differences include what to expect in the personal fit part and what to watch out for during the case interview.

For us to make most of our session, I ask you to send me your CV, a few bullets on where you are in the interview process and preparation, and what you want to focus on (e.g. case vs. personal fit). This way, I can target the session to your needs. 

I have prepared a range of cases from my own case/interview experience: they encompass qualitative/quantitative, different types of business problems (e.g. cost vs. growth), familiar vs. exotic industries, creative vs. more structured thinking.

As a coach for younger colleagues and unpaid mentor in other contexts, I am passionate about supporting people in their development. And I believe that landing a consulting job is one of the best things you can do for your professional development. I am also more than happy to give you tips on how to master your first case and shape your new life as a consultant.
