ibc

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. Learn how you can prepare for case interviews, including by doing a mock interview.

2. Explore these high-business industries by conducting career research. Access our career research tools, including Vault (see Career Guides for Consulting, Investment Banking, and Banking & Finance) for comprehensive info and insider details.

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 September 4.

4. Investment Banking and Finance Events & Deadlines: Application deadlines begin in early September and most firms recruit only once a year in early fall, so don't miss this chance.
