An Internship in Venture Philanthropy

During my first year I got involved with the Volunteer Consulting Organization – something I highly recommend to anyone interested in nonprofit, consulting, or just a good team-based experience (shameless plug #1). The satisfaction I derived from that experience was different than in for-profit consulting. Nonprofits are almost always resource-constrained – therefore, the areas that…

The Consulting Industry

Consulting, ubiquitous as it might seem at HBS, is not a career to approach lightly. While you might sometimes get the impression that everyone has either done it before or is going to do it after school, this in itself is not a good reason to take the plunge. The interviews in themselves are not…

The Case Study Interview

Interviewing with management consulting firms has become one of the standard practices for HBS students. Most people seem to do it at least one-either because they actually want to work for a consulting company, or because they feel they should at least interview with one. While management consulting firms were the first companies to hold…

Summer Volunteer Consulting Report- Summer in St. John

Crystal clear 80 degree water, fruity rum drinks, and an easy-going way of life. These are the thoughts that come to mind when one thinks of the US Virgin Islands. I was fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of these accoutrements during this past summer as I completed a cost accounting and business…

HBS Community Enterprise Fellowships

People ask me what I did this summer, and every time, I take a long breath before launching into the description that I know will baffle and discombobulate my audience to no end. “Oh, I was doing this fantastic fellowship sponsored by HBS, where we teamed up with a McKinsey Engagement Manager, and my client…

CareerTalk

For the past year we have been hearing about the new wave of B2B and B2C: “Back to Banking” and “Back to Consulting”. The question on the minds of many EC students is which of these options to go for. Given the weight of this decision in determining quality of life post our HBS honeymoon…

To Intern or Not? That is the Question

The real world reared its ugly head over the last few weeks, as cohort students began to think about their lives outside of the HBS bubble. In pursuit of August internship positions, approximately half of the cohort interviewed with a range of consulting and investment banking firms.

Recession Regression

Cheryl Alkon knew the job market was tight in 1992 when she graduated from college at the tail-end of the last real recession in the United States. But that didn’t make her six-month effort to find a job as a magazine writer any easier. “If someone was going to get a media job, I thought,…

Mercer Says Goodbye To Summer Internships

Thinking of a summer internship at prestigious consulting firm Mercer Management Consulting? Think again. Mercer, so far alone among top consultancies, has decided not to hire any interns for the summer of 2001.

Tales from Seattle Trek

As I boarded the plane, I looked forward to a relaxing weekend in Seattle (anagram of: last tee; now you try one). The cushy US Air seats immediately helped soften the blows I had been dealt by several firms in an industry that sounds like “gone sulking.” Never would I have predicted what was about…

Hell Week!

This week has been a loaded week for HBS students. Hell week has been on in full swing. Students wearing business suits running from one interview to the other, all sorts of horror stories getting enacted. This correspondent, for instance, asked a consulting firm senior partner what led him to work at BCG. It did…
