When did you find out about the Management Consulting industry?
According to my profile I've been a member of WSO for 29 weeks and therefore have known about Management Consulting for 28 weeks... lol. Fortunately I've been productive thus far in my life and my experiences are applicable to my MC hunt.
But I'm curious, how some you all found out about MCing? And if you feel like sharing why you want to do it?
Follow-up question... How often are forced to explain to people who don't know what it is, what exactly it is?
*** ie. Despite my dad running a small business for the last 25 years he didn't know what it was. I was cracking up last summer when I told him that I wanted to MC. He was like "Consult, you? What they hell are you going to consult on? How to pick up girls in the club? Pssh... they don't pay 23 year olds $80K to do that."
Then I sat his ass down in front of the firms' websites lol***
