How to get into consulting from PHD
I know PHDs are usually supposed to go into academia, but a previous thread (which I deleted because I realized it was too specific and might reveal my identity to the school, lol) convinced me that the school I could go to for the PHD program has just a much higher prestige factor than the economic consulting firm I would go to instead.
Therefore my question now is that if I know after my five years doing research, I want to recruit for MBB or other consulting opportunities. How should I build my resume during this time? Any specific way you would recommend I network? And any other advice you think would be useful.
More info: operations phd inside the business school, the research will be drawn from companies coming to my professor to solve a problem. Basically academic consulting.
