I will graduate this year with a degree in Informatics through the school of information, and I would like to apply to IT consulting jobs. The problem is that I don't have any previous internships, compared to other applicants perhaps. How can I make myself seem just as qualified with the experience I DO have, such as on campus jobs? Thanks.
I am doing a consulting job and was able to get out 5,000 in 2007. And the other 13-15,000 will be in 2008. How much taxes will I have to pay on this $5,000? Thanks.
ABC computes the cost of each consulting job by adding a portion of firm wide support costs to the labor cost of the consultants on the job. The support costs are assigned to each consulting job using a cost driver rate based on consultant labor costs. ABC's support costs are $5 million per year, and total consultant labor cost is $2.5 million.

Hello All, I always wonder how do software consulting firms find the consulting job postings in each company, every company has a career section but this section only shows direct employment in their company, but for a vendor company how do they get to know the consulting jobs within a company ?
I have to appear for preliminary round of interviews and am thinking if pinstripes are considered appropriate for interviews or not. Also, is it an "overkill" if I wear too formal clothing in preliminary interviews and can be laughed at? Also how about wearing pinstripe for final interviews? I am a college student interviewing for consulting jobs.
Some IT consulting jobs, ie. EDS, will list government security clearance as a requirement for a job. Is there a test or application that I must complete to get this clearance?
I am being offered a consulting job in Nigeria for about 12 working days; however this also would include spending two unpaid weekends there. I've worked for other companies and they would pay for a flight home every weekend. I would be ok with spending one weekend there, but two unpaid weekends seems like I'm being taken for granted. Any advice?
Home is Germany and I'm giving a workshop in Nigeria
I am not a P.Eng. and a company has hinted that they may offer a consulting job to me (I am an electrical engineer with Ph.D.). They asked me to think about how much I am going to charge them as a consultant. How much do you think is appropriate? Your help is really appreciated.
I'm about to apply medical school and am almost done with an MS in BME. I really want to be a doctor, but have always been interested in medical investments also. My parents do not want me to be and never have encouraged me to be a doctor even though I enjoy it and have good grades. I am planning on ignoring there wishes, and pursuing medicine, but am also interested in maybe trying to find a consulting job or working during studies, and maybe medical investing down the line.
I'm thinking of taking on solo indie projects, like helping people set up networks, servers, troubleshooting computers, making web sites, customing MS Office apps in VBA, writing 3-tier software, backend work. You name it--I can do it. Not to brag, but I am very good at it and people know it. As an aside, I'm bad at other things like dancing and chemistry. But I am a serious computer whiz.
Isn't there some way I can spread the word and start doing jobs for people, then finally hire other people to work for me?
Marketing seems to be the problem here. I might know computers, but I have no idea how to market. I've tried using friends/word of mouth, but it just seems like a dud. Any ideas?
I don't want a consulting job. While that seems like an obvious answer, I just don't want to depend on others like that. I want to get in the driver's seat here.
I am going to be graduating from a fairly good private school in May. I am begging to apply to some analyst position jobs at companies like amazon, google, msft, etc. I wonder if for example if I worked at retail store like Target as a seasonal job, would that help me when I apply to those firms? Is there any seasonal employment that would look favorable on my application or does it look like a lame attempt.
how about for the consulting jobs i am applying to? what can i do over winter break to give me an advantage?
-I'm graduating from a liberal arts college. I am an economics major and have had internships in the business world before.
I just graduated with a bachelors in business admin. I want to work in the business consulting field...preferably strategic consulting.
I've applied to 5 of the leading consulting firms in the U.S., but unfortunately haven't had any responses to my applications. While I have graduated from one of the top 25 business colleges in the nation, I'm beginning to wonder if perhaps I'm being a little overly ambitions to get a consulting job with only an undergrad degree. Here are my questions:
1) Should I head back to school to get an MBA?
2) Would working as just a "pencil pusher" for a year, prior to applying to a consulting job, be a better idea then just shooting for a consulting job right out of school?
3) Any suggestions on a good consulting firm to apply to? (I'm not particularly interested in any one sector at this point in time, but if I had to choose I would have to pick, marketing.)
Any other suggestions or feedback would be more than welcome. Thanks.

I am considering majoring in geology with the intention of being an environmental geologist. I am curious as to the types of jobs they get. Are they consulting/office jobs? Lab jobs? Research jobs?.
I live in New York and I am currently unemployed. I am collecting unemployment now, but I wanted to know if I work as a consultant for one or two days, will I lose my unemployment benefits? The consulting job will only last one or two days and then it will be done.
A couple people have answered that I would only lose benefits for the day or two that I worked which is fine with me. I just don't want to permanently lose them. Can anyone else verify that?
