This past week I discovered that I'm interested in management/strategy consulting and I have nothing lined up for the summer
I'm about to graduate from [removed] with a B.S. in [removed]. This Fall I'm going to [removed] for [removed]. I live in [removed].
I have two questions:
(1) Is it still possible to land a, and if so, how? Obviously I'll apply online everywhere, but I almost feel like this is a waste of time at this point b/c it's already May and none of these companies (that I know of) even recruit at my school. I tried searching on Linkedin for alumni, but practically all I could find were IT consultants. For the few alumni I found that aren't IT consultants, I'm not really convinced that messaging them on Linkedin will garner a response other than "apply on our website".
(2) If I don't end up landing an internship, will I still be competitive for SA recruiting this Fall? Do I have a shot atnext summer?
Also open to econ consulting.
One more question, how important is networking for consulting?
Don't be afraid to hurt my feelings. I know I'm dumb for waiting this late.
