Update: The date for this live event has passed. If you missed this very informative web seminar, but still want to learn more about transitioning from a science PhD program to management consulting, you can still access many of the resources created by the presenter at his website: Final Round Prep

Intrigued by the last post about transitioning from a PhD to consulting? Curious if that move might be a good fit for you?

BioCareers, a career hub for postgraduate life scientists, is sponsoring a web seminar titled “What you need to know, and do, to get a job in the management consulting industry”

The web seminar is taking place this Wednesday, January 23, from 10 am to 11 am PST (that’s 1-2 PM for you east coasters). Pre-registration is required and free, and will provide you with the link you need to watch the live streaming seminar online.

More information about the seminar, copied from the BioCareers website:

“The competition for jobs in the Management Consulting industry is fierce; it has been estimated that less than 2% of global applicants receive a first round interview, and less than 1% receive offers for full time employment. So how do you differentiate yourself enough in your application to land an interview, and what does it take to succeed in the dreaded “case interview”?

Join our Webinar led by Management Consulting recruiting expert, Darren Lafreniere, as he walks you through every step of the consulting recruiting value chain – from conducting due diligence on the industry, to networking with the firms, developing consulting specific resumes and cover letters and learning how to crack the case.”
