Moving from industry to consultancy

I read to editorial on this site about moving from industry to consultancy which is exactly what I'm going to do. My current skills are geared to lean manufacturing. Is there anyone on this forum who has made a similar switch, if so do you have any advice?

Yes, I have some advice:

1. Proof-read what you write. Quality standards for written deliverables are significantly higher in consultancy than you are used to, I'm sure.

2. Be less presumptuous. By saying "which is exactly what I'm going to do", noting in particular our current economic environment, you sound like one of those many candidates who wish to join "an esteemed firm" because they are "ideally suited to strategy consultancy". Please keep your affirmations inside your head; the rest of us do not share the need for this type of reinforceent of your self-esteem and self-confidence.

3. Buy a big tub of vaseline.

If moving from industry to consulting is exactly what you are going to do, you don't actually need any advice, do you?

Good inference as always, Mars!

It would seem to be a "fait accompli", so to speak. Given that this switch is exactly what will happen, discussing it would now seem somewhat unnecessary.
