Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had purchased this The Consultant's Networking Bible by Management Consulted. I would love to know what your thought's were on the book and if you would recommend purchasing it (or sharing it?)

Looking forward to your feedback.

    Obviously like anyone else selling interview/job search prep materials, it's primarily made for the profit. I borrowed a copy from a friend to skim before my final rounds... It wasn't that useful from my standpoint, but it was also because I had done the entire networking/cold-calling game before. If you're just starting your search (read: rising junior or prior) then it should be useful. If you've done the whole spiel before, don't bother. Just read this forum, read MC, and read/practice with Case in Point. Voila, you're set,

    Was looking into this as well but have been hearing mixed reviews

    There are tons of cold-calling/emailing guides here on WSO, and many of the users a willing to give you pointers. There's nothing in the consulting bible that's really shockingly new or unheard of.

    Thank you all for the excellent help. My interest in this book is based on the fact that the only way I will be getting interviews is through lots of networking. I'm a recent master's graduate in biochemistry and consulting is what I want to do. Although it may be an odd transition, if I'm able to get an interview I'll ba satisfied as the rest of the process would put me on even footing with all other applicants.

    I completely agree that there is some great information on networking throughout the website, I've learned lots already :)

    The error of confirmation: we confirm our knowledge and scorn our ignorance.
