What are my chances of starting my career in a consultancy company as a fresh graduate?
I've heard that consultancy companies prefer hiring experienced professionals rather than fresh graduates. The only exceptions are some of the brightest graduates. I dont really have a breath-taking GPA score and am willing to be a consultant more than anything. What are my chances?? Do you know of any other jobs which I can consider as a path that will lead me to being a financial consultant (corporate finance) in the future??

Yes, consultancies usually only hire experienced people, usually VERY experienced people. This is because to be a consultant you are usually expected to hit the ground running and be able to use your experience and education to help companies in your specific area that already have really smart/experienced people...

consultant is usually a later-in-life thing so it seems like a slightly backward question imho. please dont get offended, that's just my take you can be a consultant to a finance academy bringing to them your accumulated experience (the experience you gained while in corporate finance)
