Boom in advisory consulting jobs in India
With the rest of the economy picking up, seems like demand for consultants are up again !
From Business Today (subscription reqd):
The booming economy is throwing up job opportunities for consultants. Says Sumeet Mathur, Director, Human Resource, KPMG: "We plan to recruit about 5,000 people by 2010." A majority of them will be CAS and MBAs in the 24-35 age group.
The story is much the same at other consultancy majors. "I'll recruit 100 people right away if I get the right people," adds Rahul Roy, Executive Director, Ernst & Young. "There's huge demand for both top end 'brain surgery' work as well as grunt work," informs Mohit Mohan, VP of executive search firm Gilbert Tweed Associates.
PWC and McKinsey & Company declined to reveal their numbers, but market sources say they, too, are hiring big. Smaller and niche consulting firms are adding to their headcount as well. Adds Arun Mahapatra, Managing Partner, Heidrick & Struggles: "This trend will continue for at least another 2-3 years."
So all you wannabe corporate advisors, put your best feet forward, and brush up the Case Interview method.
