As a PhD researcher one is grilled and trained to solve the numerous scientific problems that he or she comes across during her research. The answers to these problems are the results of tremendous brainstorming sessions with your supervisor, which involves analytical and critical thinking.
Problem-solving skills based on analytical and logical reasoning can be of great use in other fields as well and one such field is the field of consulting.
Consulting is a field where firms help business houses solve their problems by renting out their expertise to them. Your problem solving skills and a mind that strives on asking WHY is always an asset in such business. We invite consultants from one the big consulting firms to share their experiences and journeys from being a PhD to a consultant and show you the opportunities waiting for you in this career track.
