In our latest blog from our Career Lead for the Consulting Sector, Mark Daley talks about what his delivery plans are for Students in 2020/2021…….
At Imperial College Business School Careers, support is organised in industry sectors with Career Consultants specialising in their industry vertical with a view to providing an effective, knowledge-based programme of workshops and employer events tailored to both the student and the evolving market.
Every year we plan what our delivery will be for the next year – this is year is no different - taking in to account the needs of the future job market due to the current pandemic and its effect on the global economy – the Consulting sector will dynamically be at the forefront of economic recovery. Along with general consulting, we can identify five key commercial areas of focus: Data Analytics, Innovation, Turnaround Restructuring, Organisational Change and E-Commerce & Supply Chain. These areas will be critical components to the future of society and industry and therefore, the consulting sector going forward. But how do we as a sector within the Business School Career Service provide the support to students entering this field in 2020/2021?
The delivery of the Consulting Sector programme will cover three phases that are rolled out over the whole year. Through our comprehensive plan we aim to inform, develop and prepare students from initial research and application right through to hitting the professional ground running and making a positive impact once at work.
In my next blog, I will talk to you more about what you can be doing to prepare over the summer through the online pre-arrival module. From there I will tell you more about workshops and activities going forward throughout your year at Imperial College Business School.
