What do we expect from a management consultant?
Stefan Jaschke will answer this. He is a partner at AXXCON and responsible for the recruiting division at AXXCON.
What does a management consultant actually do?
As a management consultant, you are often on the road during the week. But that’s exactly what makes this job so attractive and anything else but boring. Occasionally working from home is also a topic for many people. With AXXCON, this can be done without any problems. Working as a management consultant combines the following: If required, you’re out at the customer’s place. Meeting new people. Handling a wide variety of tasks. Becoming acquainted with many industries. You’re active in an advisory capacity, but also right in the middle of a company’s operations. Within the process you learn an awful lot. Ultimately, you help customers make their company fit for the future. As a management consultant, you also have the flexibility to work from anywhere – even from home.
What are the essential prerequisites for the ‘management consultant’ profession?
Of course, a willingness to travel is an important characteristic. A degree in business administration, engineering or other economic sciences is an advantage. We are also interested in career changers who are interested in breaking new ground. Gaps in your CV aren’t bad – sometimes they’re even interesting. The most important thing for us is that employees get involved, put their ideas on paper, present and track them, and play an active role in finding innovative solutions.
Join AXXCON: Have a career as a management consultant
At AXXCON, you can join us at any time. We are looking for reinforcements in both Schwalbach, near Frankfurt, and Dusseldorf, where we enjoy a view of the Rhine Tower. Beginners start with us on site, while consultants with professional experience support us at the customer’s site or take on their own projects. If you are looking for an internship in a management consultancy, AXXCON offers you the opportunity to get to know a wide range of tasks and thus gain a good overview.
Who is AXXCON looking for?
Ideal courses of study include, for example, economics or engineering, mathematics or business informatics. We are looking for people who have an analytical approach to problems and enjoy solving them. What’s definitely important to us is the enthusiasm that someone brings with them. Consultants should be interested in new and innovative ideas, methods, and be ready to explore new paths and learn new things. If there’s also enthusiasm for IT issues and a certain understanding of the energy industry, that’s perfect. And don’t forget: the enjoyment of dealing with people. I think then a job as a management consultant is the right one.
