Consulting 101: Making the Transition to Consulting

In this Consulting 101 event co-hosted by BCC and GWB, we will be joined by former part-time Chicago Booth student Victoria Celano, Consultant at Bain & Company. During this event, Victoria will highlight her journey from the non-profit sector to management consulting. She will also address under-representation of women in consulting and how she shaped her career in the changing landscape. Speaker Bio Victoria started her career in the social sector, first working at a sexual assault resource center and then at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. While working at the resource center, Victoria recognized the importance of business acumen in the social sector and decided to apply to business school. She attended Chicago Booth as an Evening student and pivoted into consulting. Victoria now works as a consultant at Bain & Company in DC. This event is the third of a three-part series designed to help students understand consulting and its different industry pathways.

Hear from former members


Andy Ng '21

Boston Consulting Group, Management Consulting

"The Consultant Boothies who I interacted with throughout my time here were all incredibly smart, polished, and great problem solvers - which solidified that consulting was the industry that I best fit"

Andy Ng came to Booth with a background in Actuarial Science, seeking to expand his general business knowledge. Andy's experience at Booth made him realize that he may enjoy a career in Consulting, and joining the BCC helped Andy to surround himself with individuals sharing these career goals and to confirm that Consulting was the right target industry for him. Andy leveraged BCC events, Slack discussions, case partners, and eventually OCR preparation resources to land an offer at BCG - where he continues to help firms deal with their most critical and complex issues today.

Edwin Mejia '21

EY-Parthenon, Transition Strategy & Execution

"Being a member of the BCC was the sole reason I was able to break into the consulting industry."

Prior to Booth, Edwin was a Civil Engineering major in undergrad and had a background in Project Management at a contracting firm.  After taking some strategy classes at Booth, Edwin decided that he wanted to transition into a career in Consulting and decided to join the BCC.  As a member and eventual Co-Chair, Edwin built a powerful network of students looking to make a similar change and worked with them to fine tune his career story.  Edwin was then able to leverage the casing and experience interview tools provided by the BCC to prepare for recruitment.  The BCC's Symposium event jump started recruitment for Edwin and with his expanded network and countless hours of practice with his BCC peers, Edwin landed a role at EY-Parthenon post-graduation.
