Key Jobs (Positions) in IT Consulting Part (3)

Associate/Consultant/Senior Consultant

Within strategy firms, this is the typical port of entry for newly minted MBAs and increasingly for non-MBA graduate students. Senior consultants often perform research and analysis, formulate recommendations, and present findings to the client. Oh, and at many firms they have to implement those great ideas too.

At the associate level, consultants start to practice their people-management skills, often taking responsibility for overseeing the work of junior consultants. Although this is usually a tenure-track position, a fair number of consultants will leave the advisory side of business after two or three years to pursue entrepreneurial or industry positions.
