Not Sure Where to Start?
While the mission of Caltech ADCC primarily focuses on preparing active members for transition into a consulting career, we know (from experience) that figuring out whether or not a career in consulting is a good fit for you can seem like a daunting task.
Here we have aggregated a few resources that many of our active members have found useful in their own journeys and that may help you learn a bit more about what consulting is and whether it is the right fit for you!
