I wanted to share with you this information on another resource I think might be helpful to you as you prepare for management consulting interviews.
The consulting resume and cover letter are THE most important part of the recruiting process for aspiring management consultant's for the simple reason that it is the first step in the process. If your resume is not good enough, the rest of the process is irrelevant.
In addition, most candidates severely underestimate the importance of a well-written consulting cover letter. Because the cover letter is read before the resume (and before the case interview), it is chronologically the most important step in the application process because it is the first step.
If your cover letter is extremely week, your resume will be discarded UNREAD. If your cover letter is mediocre, at best your resume will be skimmed for a few brief seconds as the reader is moving the letter to the reject pile.
Based on my experience as a former McKinsey resume evaluator, I've created a Toolkit that reveals the "behind closed doors" process that consulting firms use to evaluate your resume. You'll discover how resumes are graded, what factors go into each resume's score, and how to use this insight into crafting as strong a resume as possible.
In my Deluxe Resume and Cover Letter Toolkit, I also help you write an effective cover letter. This toolkit explains in detail what recruiters are looking for and why.
Overview Video - My tutorial with revealing insights about the recruiting process;
Actual Resumes - 50 actual resumes (with resume scores) from your competitors, including 15 successful resumes that got interviews at the top firms; and "before" vs. "after" versions of resumes that needed improvements with my edits;

Scoring Criteria - 15 different resume scoring criteria grids (5 experience levels X 3 firm calibers);
Resume Template - My consulting resume template that "forces" you to emphasize the correct things so you can use a proven approach to create your own successful resume.
