Management consultants help organisations to solve issues, create value, maximise growth and improve the business performance of their clients. They use their business skills to provide objective advice, expertise and specialist skills which the organisation may be lacking. Management consultants are primarily concerned with the strategy, structure, management and operations of an organisation. They will identify options for the organisation and suggest recommendations for change, as well as helping with additional resources to implement solutions. Consultants operate across a wide variety of services such as business strategy, marketing, financial and management controls, human resources, information technology, e- business and operations, and supply-chain management. Consultancy firms range from larger firms that offer end- to-end solutions to smaller or niche firms that offer specialist expertise, skills and industry knowledge. 9. The day-to-day activities of management consultants are often complex and varied. Projects can vary in length depending on the type of consultancy, firm and the demands of the client. They can involve an individual or a large team and may be based in one location or across various sites including overseas. Typical tasks, particularly for new graduate recruits, involve: carrying out research and data collection to understand the organisation; conducting analysis; interviewing client's employees, management team and other stakeholders; running focus groups and facilitating workshops; preparing business proposals/presentations. New recruits tend to spend most of their time at the client's site. In addition to the above, tasks for more experienced and senior consultants involve: identifying issues and forming hypotheses and solutions; presenting findings and recommendations to clients; implementing recommendations/solutions and ensuring the client receives the necessary assistance to carry it all out; managing projects and programmes; leading and managing those within the team, including analysts; liaising with the client to keep them informed of progress and to make relevant decisions. 10.

Big bucks and long hours are the hallmarks of the investment banking industry. After all, keeping on top of the world's financial markets can be an almost 24/7 job, especially in a down economy. But the financial rewards-not to mention being a part of some of the big-name business deals that you see in headlines-can make the grueling hours an adrenaline-based rush. Investment banking isn't one specific service or function. It is an umbrella term for a range of activities: underwriting, selling, and trading securities (stocks and bonds); providing financial advisory services, such as mergers and acquisition advice; and managing assets. Investment banks offer these services to companies, governments, non-profit institutions, and individuals. The action and players in investment banking are still centered around Wall Street and midtown Manhattan in New York City along with a few other money centers around the world, such as San Francisco, London, and Tokyo, but the list of players is getting smaller as the industry consolidates and firms fall to today's struggling economy. Today, leading banks include Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, and JPMorgan Chase. These and other firms are regular visitors to campus career centers-though recruitment has slowed (and layoffs have increased) considerably because of the recession that began in 2008. 16. The intensely competitive, action-oriented, profit-hungry world of investment banking can seem like a larger-than-life place where deals are done and fortunes are made.
