We’re a good six weeks into the programme now and I figured I’d share some advice with you. When I arrived at Imperial, I had no clue what the UK labour market was like. I figured it would be quite similar to the one in Holland and did not give it much thought, since I was also trying to complete a maths and accounting primer. Anyway, apparently all major consulting jobs open their applications for 2013 already almost a year in advance. This means that if you want to work for eg. McKinsey in September 2013, you will already have to apply somewhere between September and November 2012.
