I’ve been passionate about doing consulting for the last 3 years. Now, as I face graduation in three months, I have started looking at the application process for my dream firms (Accenture, Deloitte, BCG, McKinsey, etc). Most of their undergrad hires are done through a campus recruiter, which UD lacks. People suggest to me I should reach out to someone through LinkedIn.. any suggestion on who to contact? a Senior level manager? An HR recruiter? and how to approach them without being perceived as self-interested? Thank you–Valeria, Senior Psychology and Business major
Valeria- LinkedIn is often the best place to start. Get a Premium account so you can connect with people not in your network. Please connect with me as I have several connections at the large consulting firms that I can share with you. Todd https://www.linkedin.com/in/toddstrosnider

Hi Valeria, I would strongly recommend going through HR first. Ask what you can specifically do to strengthen your application. Feel free to reach out to leaders to ask what excellence looks like at that company and how you could best display that. I’d also recommend looking at other large companies. Often, they have roles similar to an in-house consultant. Best of luck!
