Image-empty-state_edited.png

Consulting and Tech are great career choices for any ambitious undergraduates today. Perhaps you want to build a start-up one day or be a C-level executive in a future unicorn – but where do you start? Management consulting can build one’s big-picture strategic thinking and analytical mind while being in Tech allows one to be at the forefront of industry early and create direct impact from the get-go. Stuck at the crossroads between two lucrative industries, where should one go first? What are some skills that both Consulting and Tech firms look out for? Should I go into Consulting first, then exit to Technology or vice-versa?
