4 Ways to Prepare for Consulting & Investment Banking Careers (Recruiting starts in mid-August)

IB & Consulting firms typically recruit for full-time positions only once a year in the early fall. Are you ready?

Here's our best advice on how to prepare:

1. Schedule your appointment during the summer to have your resume and search strategy ready to launch in August. You'll need a professional resume and cover letter tailored for each firm for info sessions and application deadline. 

2. Attend our Crash Course in Investment Banking & Consulting (8/30, 12-1pm, FAC 18, Register here) to learn all about these careers and what recruiters look for in a full-time or internship candidates.

3. Consulting Events & Deadlines: Don't miss out on the company presentations and case interview workshops. Attending these events are the best way to learn about the field, the company, the position and the career track, the recruiting process and the case interview method. These events typically occur between mid-August and mid-September. Don't miss your chance to apply! Most firms recruit only once a year in early fall, so don't miss this chance. Many of the consulting application deadlines start as early as August 28. Explore consulting events and job and internship postings here.
