In late October, Arizona’s Consulting Club headed to New York to meet with UA Alumni working in the Consulting Industry. Our goals for the trip were to network with consulting professionals, to create contacts for future students, and to learn more about potential career opportunities in the industry. We met with a number of firms including Deloitte, Accenture, Capco, Association of Management Consulting Firms, PwC, FTI Consulting, Ernst and Young, and Tata Consulting. We talked to Consultants of all experience levels working on projects in financial services, media, sustainability, crisis communications, IPOs, and more. Listening to their experiences and having the opportunity to ask questions helped everyone gain great insight into the consulting industry.
My favorite part of the trip was definitely learning about all of the different projects they had worked on and hearing their passion for their jobs. I would highly recommend all students interested in a career in Consulting to apply for this trip next fall and to join Arizona’s Consulting Club. My experience in New York was eye-opening in many ways and really encouraged me to keep pursuing a career in this industry.
