Consulting Case Training

Our team of Consulting Case Interview Coaches are undergraduate students who have successfully recruited and placed at premier consulting firms. The coaches will work with you to familiarize you with the case style, mechanics, and overall problem solving skills.

    OUR ADVISING MODEL

    Our advising philosophy is to support students as they navigate their careers interests, build connections, overcome obstacles, and celebrate success at every stage.

    EXPLORE

    Knowing the potential paths is a key first step. Career exploration includes both the ability to identify and research potential career paths, and to thoroughly investigate specific positions. Through EXPLORE programming, students discover career options within the various business disciplines.

    PREPARE

    Telling your story is an art. Being able to write and speak with impact so others will see the value is critical. This insight is valuable as you develop skills in other career stages; explore career options that are a good fit, interview effectively, and develop your professional identity and professional brand. PREPARE programming focuses on personal branding.

    ENGAGE

    Relationships are essential for a good life, a good career, and a successful business. In ENGAGE programming, students learn how to build their network by participating in events with alumni and organizations. These networking opportunities occur both at Gies and off-campus as students visit organizations.
