How You'll Benefit
No matter what career you choose, you'll solve problems every day. The most sought after and successful employees are those who have strong problem-solving skills.
Consultants are trained to help organizations solve a specific problem or meet a goal. You don't have to plan on a career as a consultant to learn to approach a problem from a consultant's perspective.
As a liberal arts student, you're already developing the skills consultants use in their work: research, writing, problem-solving. By participating in a consulting project NOW, you'll see how to use those skills in the real world, plus learn additional skills such as:
- Idea generation
- Design thinking
- Project management
These skills, plus the real experience you'll get actually working for a company, will be excellent additions to your resume and will help you show an employer or graduate school that you already know how to assess a situation, gather information, frame a problem, and propose a solution. There's no better way to gain a competitive edge over the other applicants.
In The Space to: Consult, you'll work with a team of students, and we'll teach you everything you need to know in order to successfully complete the project.
