This fall semester the Consulting Club hosted an internship panel to share the different experiences that the consulting world has to offer. Lorena Valente spoke about her experiences at the Albright Stonebridge Group and McLarty Associates; Edward Moe spoke about FSG, John Lu spoke about Deloitte, and Amy Fisher spoke about The Kaizen Company.
Each panelist represented a different sector of consulting and shared their personal insights about their experiences. Throughout the course of the hour-long panel, each student thoughtfully answered their peers’ questions about their responsibilities and assignments and shared some sage advice for our first-year attendees, on everything from how to connect with your interviewer to what type of firm might be best for their needs. Both the speakers and attendees left with a better understanding of the different forms firms can take under the classification of “consulting,” in addition to a practical knowledge of what consulting means in life after SAIS.
