Now in its tenth edition, Management Consulting 1999 provides invaluable job-search advice for the prospective management consultant. Harvard Business School graduates, students, and faculty reveal firsthand insights into the industry, offer advice on career self-assessment, describe what a consultant's work is really like, outline current industry trends, and offer guidelines for approaching the case-study interview. Also included are profiles of well-known consulting firms, a mailing list of recruiting contacts, and a selective bibliography of relevant books and directories compiled by the Harvard Business School career resources librarian.
