One can describe Consulting as a sphere of business, which grew up on the limited office space and active networking. In other words, Consulting companies sell competencies of their employees and spare office space by putting those employees in clients’ companies.
How is a consulting different from the industry? You will be the most important asset of the company, and your boss – an asset manager. If the asset manager is good, any asset will bring profit to the company – therefore, look for the companies, which generate good profits, pay well and where people are promoted and can benefit from additional education and certification opportunities.
