Can you guide a person who is just having core engineering experience in the Energy Industry (13 + Years) and now he wants to make a move to a Management Consultancy role like Business Strategy Consultant? How he should proceed.

If your end goal is FAANG, I wouldn't recommend strategy consulting over tech consulting. It's much easier to get into FAANG if you have a niche skillset that is in low supply in the market. I used to work at Deloitte and had strategy colleagues that couldn't even get interviews at FAANG. Whereas I had a niche tech skillset and AMZN actually poached me via linkedin. I'm now an L7 making $400k USD a year at 28 years old and only work 40 hours a week. So in both lifestyle and salary, I'm ahead of many of my strategy colleagues at my age.

Hah, physics is way, way harder than any business or economics degree. Your interviewers were probably like why does this brainiac want to work with us fools?

Fascinating video Kajol. Could you make the next one on the secret of how your bosses are able to persuade their, presumably not totally simpleminded clients, to hire you, having, as you have admitted, practically no experience, except a few years at some fancy university doing a totally irrelevant course, at hourly rates that would make a consultant brain surgeon with 12 years of meticulous and laboured service green with envy? (Or am I making too many assumptions about your clients?). Thanks.

Thank you for the video. I’m at a different point in life to you, I was a consultant surgeon now trying to get into healthcare management consulting. Your story is very helpful. Please become prime minister. David.

I have exactly the same journey like you. Coming from a political science degree, I tried out many different roles. Some of them were just not as good as I thought. But every internship was part of a learning process about myself. Then I came to the start up business and I really started to get passionated about digital topics. After an internship at the press department of the German government, I decided to work on cross-cutting issues of Digitalization and Politics. Accidentally, I heared of consulting, which I have never been aware of before. So I decided to apply for a consulting internship. I was rejected by Deloitte. However, I made an internship at a small consulting firm dealing with banks and insurances. That was not my favorite industry, but I took the chance with both hands and I learned a lot about change management and I also obtained a SAFe agilist certificate. After all that experiences in my hand , I applied again for Deloitte Consulting (public sector transformation) and I got accepted. I will start as an analyst in summer 2021 🙂
You are right, Kajol. You dont need to plan everything ahead. Do a lot of networking and many doors will open. It is not always about the result enjoy the journey. Unfortunately, South Asian families dont understand that, because they are so status-driven and want to push their kids in certain careers. But the world is full of opportunities. There are more jobs except doctor or engineer.

Btw I love your videos, Kajol. However, it would be really great, if you could speak a little bit slower. So people like me, whose first language is not english, can follow easier. 😉
