Talent Talks What's Hot in Consulting - What to expect when getting in consulting
Having the right expectations about getting in consulting is important and Don Leslie, a management consulting recruitment specialist with over 30 years of experience, shares: "I think the first thing to think about for one that is going to go in consultancy is actually do I know what I'm letting myself in for, what are the downsides of being a consultant. The two big drawbacks are the time away from home (due to traveling) and the long hours. And you need to ask yourself am I prepared to do that at this stage in my life?"
Don was also a Director of Beament Leslie Thomas (BLT) a consulting recruiter which acts for a wide variety of UK based management consultancy firms, working on search, retained and contingency recruitment. Don has 30 years of experience in recruiting strategy and management consultants with BLT, and he is now an independent adviser to Business Schools and Universities, MBAs and others, on careers in consultancy.
