Our Summer Consultant Program offers to exceptional college and
university rising seniors a unique opportunity to learn about the
business world, management consulting, and Monitor.
Through training sessions and informal discussions, you will be
exposed to a range of business issues and management frameworks.
Through active participation --and real responsibility-- on a live
case team, you will develop "hands on" understanding of the
day-to-day work of consulting. And through an attractive mix of
social events, you will get to know a broad cross-section of your
fellow Consultants. In these more relaxed settings, you will have
an opportunity to explore any questions you might have about
Monitor's distinctive philosophy, values, and commitment to the
learning and development of its people.
The objective of our Summer Consultant Program is to provide you
with a work experience that takes into consideration your own goals
and interests. But it is also to make that experience exciting,
challenging, and just plain fun; to support you with the advice and
guidance you need to be successful; and to make available to you
the opportunities to discover if consulting is the right field
--and if Monitor is the right firm-- for you. Of course, the
program also gives us the chance to get to know you, your skills,
your appetite for learning, and your motivation to do our kind of
work. Over the years, we have invited many Summer Consultants who
have done superior work during their summer to join Monitor
full-time after graduation.
For the United States, Summer Consultant Internships are
approximately two months in length. When you arrive, we will
provide an introduction to Monitor, its history, and its people, as
well as instruction in some of the basic tools you are most likely
to use during the summer. We will also ask you to tell us about
your personal and professional goals for the Internship, helping us
to allocate you to the most suitable case team for you. We'll also
help you structure a discussion with your manager about the types
of activities most likely to allow you to meet your goals.
On your case team, you will work closely with four to eight
Consultants on such tasks as gathering and analyzing data;
interviewing industry experts, customers, and suppliers; studying
competitors; building financial models; designing market research
surveys; and preparing client presentations. As an integral member
of the team, your assignments and level of responsibility will
progress in line with your skill development. In practice, this
means you may get the chance to travel and meet directly with
clients. The nature and extent of workload will, of course, vary
from case to case, but the overall experience will be genuinely
representative of what life is like for Monitor Consultants.
Successful candidates must have an outstanding academic record, in
addition to demonstrating:
• Strong verbal communication skills;
• Comfort with quantitative analysis;
• Ability to work well in teams and with clients;
• Ability to balance and prioritize multiple tasks.
High-performing college and university students, who are now in
their third year (or equivalent) will be considered for the Summer
Consultant position. All applicants must submit a cover letter,
transcript, and resume. You are also required to submit an online
application through Monitor's website:
http://www.monitor.com/JoinMonitor/JobOpenings. All academic
backgrounds are encouraged.
Summer Consultats will earn a weekly stipend of $1000 and receive a
signing bonus once they accept their offer.
