Why Consulting Beats Working in Industry – Four Often Overlooked Career Benefits

Adam Cummins addresses the key benefits of a career in consulting versus industry in this contributed piece, ranging from fast-tracked experience to accelerated executive development and career mentorship. Sample excerpt: “Working in the consulting industry provides a unique set of requirements and challenges, such as heavy travel schedules and compressed project timelines. That said, there are several often overlooked, or at best under-represented, benefits to a consulting career. Unfortunately, most job seekers are largely unaware of what these benefits are, unfamiliar with how to ask the right questions of a prospective consulting firm employer to help determine if these might be available to them, and do not know how to take advantage of them once on-boarded with their new consulting firm.”
