Consulting Career for New Grad?? Hello, I just graduated 2 months ago in Chemical engineering and I am trying to find a job. During my job search it appears that the overwhelming majority of engineering positions are with consulting firms. I have been pretty hesitant about applying to them because I am currently under the impression that consulting is no good for a new graduate with little experience. I feel like in consulting you would have to bring some good skills and experience to the table to be valuable for clients. I just imagine working for one as a new grad they would just give me simplistic work and paper pushing that no one wants to do. I'd rather work for a industrial or manufacturing company and get consistent exposure to something useful. I'm having trouble find these types of jobs though, its all consulting. Can someone please give me some insights on consulting for new graduates? Are my assumptions valid? Thank you.
