Advancement Prospects

Consultants who work as internal consultants at corporations and other businesses can advance to supervisory positions. Those with considerable experience can advance to executive-level positions such as chief marketing officer, vice president of marketing, or chief executive officer. Those who are employed by consulting firms can advance to take on managerial duties or eventually become partners (also known as principals)consultants who have a financial stake in their firms. It’s not easy to become a partner. In fact, industry experts estimate that new graduates have only a 35 percent chance of making partner during their careers. Some consultants launch their own firms.
