Let's talk about consultancy!
Consultants analyse and assess their needs and provide advice for solutions.
Business consulting includes, in particular, organizational and management support services, IT services or the outsourcing of service functions (purchasing, accounting, human resources, etc.).
Graduates with degrees in humanities are a new recruiting pool for consulting professions:
'We are an intellectual services company that sells reports. Given the increasing multidisciplinarity of our professions, we are looking for young people with a strong intellectual and cultural background, a high degree of adaptation, a willingness to learn and good interpersonal skills.'(Nicolas de Limbourg, PriceWaterhouseCoopers).
The most popular qualifications are less technical than in the early 2000s, when business IT specialists were the most sought after.
We are now turning to more generalist profiles. People with a 'human sciences' degree can adapt to the consulting professions provided they have specific training and support. Employers are looking for open-minded, flexible people with language skills. It is then up to them to teach themselves the secrets and tricks of the consulting profession...
