compensation: $70K plus bonus and benefits
employment type: full-time

We're conducting a search for new associates for a boutique management consulting firm (30-40 people) downtown Boston. Ideal candidates are academic high-achievers with an interest in exploring management consulting but an aversion to huge companies, bureaucracy, and unnecessary formality.

The company's current associates are primarily Ivy-plus grads and include a Ph.D. in international relations, an ABD in religious studies, and holders of masters degrees in romance languages, economic history, public humanities, and editorial studies. Undergrad majors range from classics and visual arts to biology and economics. Past work experiences range from teaching and editing to fundraising and systems analysis.

What do they have in common? They're smart, good writers, and good at learning and mastering new areas of expertise. And none of them specifically planned for a career as a management consultant.

Associates work directly with senior team members, client teams, and the firm's CEO. They support the firm's senior team in executing strategy consulting and conducting research in the firm's specialty area (technology strategy in a specific sector of financial services).

This means traveling approximately 50%, documenting discovery interviews, analyzing unstructured qualitative data, conducting interviews and internet research, drafting Powerpoint presentations and written reports, and more. Strong XLS skills are required to use the firm's proprietary analytical tools.

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please send a resume.
