If you’re an engineering graduate, have you ever considered a career in consultancy? We’re happy to share our expertise on the consulting career path and what you can expect as an engineering consultant.
What is consultancy?
As a consultant, you’ll work on-site with a customer for a specified duration, providing them with your specialized expertise while being employed by a consultancy firm. Once the project is completed, you’ll typically be assigned to a new project with a different client. This cycle of working on diverse projects with various customers offers a dynamic and constantly evolving work environment, where you’ll have the opportunity to broaden your skills and develop your career in new and exciting ways.
Advantages of being a consultant
As a consultant, you’ll definitely get a variety of job placements. Since customers often work on a temporary project-based, you know that you’ll change jobs and customers quite often. Projects differ in duration and can go from a few months to a year or sometimes longer.
Working experience in a fast pace
Working across multiple sectors and clients as a consultant offers a wealth of opportunities to gain experience in a diverse range of technologies, methods, and tools. This fast-paced, dynamic work environment means that your learning curve will rise quickly from the beginning of your career, enabling you to build a broad and deep knowledge base that you can apply to future projects. With each new project, you’ll have the chance to expand your skills and develop new areas of expertise. Consulting is an excellent choice for those who are eager to learn and grow.
You don’t have to worry about being out of a job or having to look for a new employer. Even when you’re in between projects or jobs you stay on our payroll which gives you peace of mind as well.
Increase your professional network
As a consultant, you build up a professional network quickly. You interact with the various stakeholders at our client as well as at our organization. You may for instance work with experienced consultants and senior executives, who can serve as mentors and help you build your network. But consultancy also provides opportunities to build relationships with clients and colleagues, which can be valuable for future career opportunities.
