An inside look at management consulting between jobs or as a second career


To Be or Not To Be ...
A Management Consultant

We've developed a simple self-assessment tool that should give you a quick answer to the question "Would I make a good management consultant?"A major career crossroad for many

Of course, we don't want to trivialize the importance and very personal nature of a major career decision. Please don’t misinterpret the seeming simplicity of this self-assessment, or any humor that may creep into it, as an indication of disregard for the seriousness of the decision you’re about to make. It could very well be a pivotal career crossroad for you, and it’s our objective to be as helpful as possible.

With that said, we’ve used the contents of the book, Rasputin For Hire : An inside look at management consulting between jobs or as a second career, and distilled the advice of successful professionals who have made this decision for themselves. Of course, if you want a detailed discussion with all the nuances, you’ll have to read the book. If, on the other hand, you want a quick check-list and decision tree for your own immediate use, this online self-assessment should do the trick. Think of it as a highly condensed version of one chapter in the book.

Simply answer each question and follow the directions. You’ll have the answer that’s right for you in just a few moments.

Good luck!
