Consulting firms are very attractive employers for many CEMS students. Besides attractive salary packages, they offer very steep learning curves, a dynamic and challenging work environment, and very interesting projects – some of them even abroad. However, getting into consulting is not so easy. This 1-day skill seminar introduces you to the industry, discusses if this is a career option for you, and practices some elements of the recruiting interviews.
