Human resources consulting is a lucrative and prestigious career. Often recruited out of Ivy League institutions, candidates must still undergo a rigorous interview process in order to land an offer. There are a myriad of consulting jobs, but those who advance to land strategy roles have analytical horsepower and C-suite level communication skills.While there are many different careers in Human resources consulting g the bottom line is that consultants are hired to either help companies cut costs or increase revenues. This may require changing a company’s entire strategic direction, adding IT services, marketing, financial analysis, or cutting excesses that drain the bottom line (i.e. outsourcing). While consultants must be able to see the overall big picture as it pertains to a company, strategy projects are short (3-6 months) and narrowly defined.
