Benefits of Consulting | 3 min read
Consulting worldwide is becoming more and more popular. With the changes expected in the economic environment, mainly as a direct result of COVID-19 and the lockdown effects on businesses, there are many skilled professionals in the job market. The option of consulting can be daunting, but the benefits definitely out weigh the areas of concern.
Malander Advisory’s core business focuses on temporary managed resources to clients within the finance sector and through conversation with our staff and experience gained over the years of consulting, the following advantages of consulting is the reason that many people remain as consultants for a long period of time.
Greater exposure and experience
Consulting allows those who choose the career to quickly try out industries, functional areas, and even geographies to see what they like most, due to its nature of varied and often changing projects.
Even if you are certain of a particular sector, consulting gives you the opportunity to see various corporate cultures and meet people within the organisation, which can be a big step in choosing a career.
Break in the monotony
Consulting allows you to be exposed to various pieces of work and as for many, that can be a stimulating change from working a familiar, if not monotonous, full-time job. The diversity of your work will keep you challenged and motivated.
Fast tracking your career
Many people work their entire lives to climb the corporate ladder and start working on strategic issues around the company. There are very few careers or resources where you can miss the years of day-to-day duties execution and jump straight to work on and solve these issues. Consulting offers a unique opportunity to exercise your strategic ability and get exposure to this type of thinking
You quickly become an expert
The training and speed at which you learn in consulting is unparalleled. Because the projects are fast-paced and you are typically working with teams, you get to learn quickly from those who are more experienced and will find yourself becoming a “quick expert” in all kinds of fields. Consultants are also supposed to keep ahead of trends, and not only do you learn about the industry ‘s big macro trends that impact your client, but you will also debate and discuss these trends with other people you work with.
