A Consultant is someone who makes their subject matter expertise and skills available to companies in need of additional resources or expert opinions. Consultants can be found in nearly any company and in any industry. They can work independently or through one of many consulting firms such as Accenture, PriceWaterHouseCoopers, and Deloitte Consulting.
The path to becoming a consultant is usually through developing many years of subject matter expertise or by way of working for large firms, who have dedicated training programs for recent college graduate and MBA students. Consulting can be a high paying career but it can also come at the cost of very long hours and required travel, depending upon the firm and client with which you are working.See Job Listings Get Job Alerts
