One way to get a full-time offer at a consulting firm is through a summer internship.
According to a 2017 LinkedIn report, the management consulting industry is among the top two fields that turn internships into full-time positions, as firms have a conversion rate of about 38%. Despite the pressures placed on the industry by coronavirus, giant firms like Bain, Boston Consulting Group, and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), have extended full-time offers to their 2020 internship classes.
But thousands of college and business school students will likely experience delayed start dates, shortened curriculum, and virtual internships as a result of the health crisis.
