About this book

Are you aware that you’re up against hundreds of other supremely qualified candidates – and only a few will be chosen?

The consulting resume/CV and cover letter are mysterious – and interview offers are scarce. What does it take to get the magical “yes”?

Even if your career office takes a quick read over your documents, or a friend at a consulting firm gives a 5-minute review, how do you methodically create the optimal resume/cover letter specifically for consulting?

After all, you only have one chance – if you’re not successful, you’re locked out of re-applying for a minimum of 18 months. Don’t waste this opportunity!

The guide provides specific tips on what reviewers at MULTIPLE FIRMS are looking for, explains HOW they review and offers step-by-steps to create consulting applications that convey exactly what reviewers want.
