Those of you who work in consulting can finally rest easy: you won't be receiving any more emails asking you to participate in our consulting survey this year--we closed it out for the year yesterday, and will shortly begin the hard work of reading and collating all 17,000+ responses in time for the rollout of our 2017 rankings this fall.
That's no easy task: as you can see from the infographic below, we smashed our previous all-time response rate by more than 20%--proof, if any were needed, that the consulting industry is going from strength to strength right now.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to co-ordinate and complete the survey--on behalf of everyone here at Vault, we truly appreciate you sharing your insights and experiences with us. Without them, we literally wouldn't be able to do what we do.
Finally, as we start going through the data, we'll be sure to post any interesting insights right here on the blog--so make sure to check back in for those. (Or you could always sit back and let those updates find you--whether by signing up for our newsletter at the top of this page, liking us on Facebook, following us on LinkedIn or finding me on Twitter. Oh, and if Instagram's your thing, we're on there too.)
2016 Vault Consulting SurveyInfographic
I'm delighted to announce the release of the 2016 Vault Best Consulting Firms to Work For rankings for North America-the most comprehensive ranking of employers in the consulting industry that you can find anywhere.
As hefty a claim as that might be, it's one that we can back with facts: this year, we distributed our survey to more firms than ever before (over 160 worldwide), and received a record number of responses (over 14,000 worldwide, with more than 9,000 from North America), resulting in a higher number of qualifying firms than ever before.
Internships are a reality that every student in their later years of school are faced with. While universities try their best to place students in their dream jobs, the question of what one’s dream job is continues to plague the minds of every student!
Is my dream job what I think it is, or is it something I am meant for but have never had the opportunity to experience? Well, maybe one of the best ways to find out would be to try out—and what better way to try out a “dream” job than having a small test run or, to put it differently, getting an internship in a field one aspires to be in.
Each year, Vault surveys thousands of current and former interns at more than 100 internship programs to create our annual Internship Rankings. Last year, we asked 12,000 interns to rate their programs in a variety of areas, including quality of projects, real-life experience, networking opportunities, training and mentoring, and more.
