Mark asks…

What professions are hired by consulting firms like accenture?

Aside from business students and IT students, from what educations do big consulting firms like Accenture, Bearingpoint, and BCG hire from?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Most large consulting firms require a few years of practical experience after college and do not hire professional consultants directly from universities.

The type of professional they hire depends on the specialization and client base of the consulting firm.

For example, a firm that specializes in organizational development will often hire psychologists and related professionals. Those with a large client base in manufacturing will hire specialists in fields related to manufacturing.

In addition, hiring depends on what particular specialty a firm needs at the time.

Web Development Consultant Job

John asks…

What is a contract or consultant job?

What is a consultant job or contract job versus new hire in the web development field?
I am 54 and wants to learn web development & database. Now I was told that I will have more chance as consultant.
Is that mean I can apply for job asking rfor a a “contract”? like in dice.com? Anything asking for a contract of 3 months , 6 months up to 1 year is a consultant job or contact? is it the same?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

A consultant is an individual who provides professional advice or services for a fee, but normally not as an employee of the engaging party. In your case, you would work outside of the business you’re doing the job rather than being an employee of that business. This means that you would be hired on a temporary basis by a business for a particular job. Hope this answers your question.

Betty asks…

Would you pay a entrepreneur for doing multiple Jobs?

I would like to know whether you are willing to pay for lawyer and accountant if he is qualified in both areas. or would you prefer that someone did one job and that is it.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Treat them as separate jobs for your accounting purposes.

As a consultant, I cover computer systems, business systems, training, coaching and mentoring. I also do classes, web pages, web content, technical documentation, business plans, database design and implementation, curriculum development, assessment preparation, network design and installation, set up servers and workstations. Manage a business for a client, prepare the business for sale, and a lot more.

I’m better than most experts in every one of them. So, quite often, I’ll do a number of contracts with one business, in more than one of these capacities. I expect to be paid for each and every one of them.

Small Business Consulting Firms Michigan

Mark asks…

Graduated from Eastern Michigan University with 3.4 GPA, Odds of getting into University of Chicago MBA?

I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in Finance about a year ago with a 3.4 GPA. I took two finance internships while in school at small finance consulting firms. I also managed a small family business during this time and continue to do so as well.

I haven’t taken the GMAT yet and I plan to work in the finance for the next 5 years before applying to business school. I am an average test taker, but hopefully with a ton of studying I can get a bit above average. I would really love to get into The University of Chicago’s Part Time MBA program. Although coming from a third tier school it seems as if my chances may be a bit lower than most. My brother in law came from Albion University with a 3.6 gpa and average GMAT scores but with 8 years work experience an got into Booth’s part time program.

I am a pretty good interviewer and I definitely have interesting experience, coming from a entreprenurial background. Do you think 5 years from now I have a shot getting in? Or at least into one of the prestigious business schools?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Depends entirely on what you do with those five years. If you’re successful and manage to take on leadership roles, and you do well on the GMAT, then your undergraduate background doesn’t matter as much. (Your family business experience definitely will be a talking point and set you apart from the other would-be finance tycoons.)

Ruth asks…

Who’s out there on here and why?

It’s been a while since I’ve spent any time on this site and I was curious if other business-owners still came here. So give us a pitch, tell us who you are, what you do and why you’re here.

My name is Dale Abramson and I’m here because I’m a workaholic. Seriously, I’ve been in consulting for over 10years and I can’t get enough of it. I own a Small Business Development Firm in Omaha, Nebraska and in-between solving my clients problems I get on here and see if there’s anyone here I can help

I also teach a class 3 nights a week on how to start a business on a very tight budget.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

I bought a small business 5 years ago and learned everything by myself..very hard. Anyway, if I can help with any questions for newbies I would love to. I am in the North West Michigan Tourism Industry.

Internet Marketing Austin

Jenny asks…

Controversial angles and moments. Does the WWE need more?

When I think of controversial storylines and moments in wrestling it brings to mind all of the discussion that they seem to get. Moments like:

- Bret Hart’s live TV breakdown and brawl with Vince
- Mohammed Hassan’s whole persona and angle
- Katie Vick
- Paul Burchill and Katie Lea’s incest angle
- Last night’s Hornswoggle cage incident
- Many of the televised shoot promo’s on live TV like Flair’s, Piper’s, Bret Hart’s, Jeff Jarrett’s, and Samoa Joe’s
- Pillman pulling a gun on Austin on live TV
- The “Dominic” angle between Eddie & Rey
- Michael “Hawk” Hegstrand (L.O.D) on Monday Night Raw “attempting suicide” by jumping from the Titantron.
- Referee Tim White and his suicidal angle
- JBL’s nazi walk at a live show in Germany

These moments, while often tasteless, are moments that the viewers talk about and tempt you to tune in the next week to see what happens.

Should the WWE push the envelope more often or keep it’s current tameness when producing their TV shows?
Prophet – The JBL incident I mentioned was at a live show in Germany which saw him in a tag-match. He was on the outside of the ring and proceeded to “goose step” along the ring apron. You can find the clip on youtube.

You make a valid point but I beleive you may have missed the focus of my question. It wasn’t about whether you or I thought they were controversial or why, but instead was simply a small listing of moments that a large portion found to be “pushing the envelope” as they put it.

I’m asking if the WWE should do more to shock people or keep the current family entertainment formula they are following.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

First off, let me say that Pillman was pretty out of control, and while that angle was a work, he was still very unpredictable in real life. He lived the gimmick.

JBL’s “Nazi salute” happened on a show on CSNBC I think it was, where he was a pundit, or talking head, about the stock market. He was in germany, threw up the salute, and was fired soon after. It had NOTHING to do with Wrestling.

Hawk’s angle was controvercial because they were exploiting his alcoholism, which was a real diseas, and real problem for Mike Hegstrand.

Tim White’s was merely an internet angle, and was only on TV one or two times to my recollection.

As for the Hornswaggle cage incident…not controvercial in the least. Midgets or “little people” (I don’t get how that term’s more PC, but I digress) have been tossed around in wrestling since the days under the circus tent. Sure, it’s hard to watch, but not controvercial.

I think WWE should start relying on wrestling again. And no, tasteless doesn’t mean ratings. I quit watching wrestling during the Katie Vick angle, because that was over the line, even if Kane’s gimmick worked well with him being a necrophile. A shoot promo here and there is sweet, but in moderation (and here’s a little kayfabe tip, if they call it a shoot, odds are they’re squealing lines verbatum from an ear piece, or had Vince condone their script pre-show, like Styles’ rant a few years ago. It wasn’t shoot, it was a worked shoot. Now, the ones you’ve mentioned are responsible for real shoots. If you saw Piper with a mic, odds are he was flying from the seat of his pants with dialogue.)

The key to shock value is undersaturation. If you continually shock people, they become desensitized by your product, and you’ll have to do crazier, more risquee things to garner their approval and attention…and let me tell ya, you can’t go much higher than necrophilia.

Honestly, my interest would be more piqued if WWE ran a normal wrestling show, devoid of “controvercial” angles.

Now, everyone seems to be fascenated with the (kayfabe) Siblings Burchill. As long as they abstain from using the word “incest” for awhile, and keep it tongue-in-cheek, I’ll be fine with it. They should also spur some doubt, otherwise it’ll be as effective as the Ambiguously Gay Duo. You know they’re gay, they either just don’t know it, or they wont admit it.

Nancy asks…

Can Demo CDs only have vocals?

If I wanted to record a demo CD to send to record labels, could I just include my vocals? I sing and write songs but I don’t have a band…I have a specific sound for each song, so I mean it won’t be completely boring ha ha. Also, would it be sufficient if I recorded it with a microphone at home? I’d need to buy a mic, but would it be okay if I bought some software, put it on my computer and recorded to songs?

Thank you for any help and advice. I’m in college so I’m trying to pursue this dream but I understand the likelihood and my hopes aren’t up too much, ha ha. But I would love to have a decent sounding recording of me singing my music, I think that would be cool to have

Thank you!

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

A vocal only demo might be acceptable if you’re trying to market yourself as a song writer. But even then, it’s a stretch.

At a bare minimum, hire an acoustic guitarist to back you up. Heck, on a college campus you could probably find someone that would like to work with you in return for a copy of the recording.

Honestly, a vocal-only demo is probably not going to hold anyone’s attention (unless you are an amazing vocalist). And don’t muck with the sound of the mic just for the sake of change. Get a good, clear sound set up and go for it. You’re only only going to record 3 or 4 songs…you’re making a demo, not an album.

Now, here’s your dose of reality. Most record labels do not accept unsolicited material. The reason being that we’re such a lawsuit happy society now. Here’s the scenario…

Let’s say you send in a demo with a few of your original songs. At some point later, you receive a letter that says “thanks but no thanks”. Then several months later you hear an established artist singing a song that sounds remarkably like one you sent in. Next thing you know, you’re filing suit against the label and the artist for ripping off your song idea. Yeah…it happens every day.

That’s why most (not all, but most) labels will only accept material from an entertainment lawyer, a management company they know, or one of their own A&R (artist and repertoire) people.

That’s not stopping you from putting your own material out there on the internet for distribution. Just do yourself a favor and join a BMI or ASCAP and register your original music before you send it out.

And yes, as far as recording only your computer, it’s possible to get some very good results. (It’s also possible to get really bad ones too). Don’t go buy a $20 mic and expect it to sound like a hit that’s on the radio now.

It’s amazing where recording technology has gone. I made my first album about 30 years ago. It was on a 24 track reel-to-reel tape machine. In all, it was probably close to half a million dollars worth of gear in the studio. Now, I’m editing a mixing a live record for a band that we captured Friday night on a Dell Laptop. Still 24 tracks, just a lot less gear!

Good luck to you.

Greetings from Austin, Tx

Ken

Michael asks…

I have taken the Myers Briggs and figured out my personality type now how do I find the right career?

Per all the reading I have done it appears that I would be best suited for either an account executive role with an advertising agency or as a business conultant. I am currently a project manager with a construction company and have a degree in economics and marketing. How do I go about getting a job with and advertising agency or a consulting firm?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Why don’t you start your own project management consulting company, or go work for a small company doing project management consulting.

This will allow you to utilize your own PM skills, as well as get into the marketing and business side. Depending on your marketing strategy you could even get into some advertising stuff.

If you wanted, you could also try and move into managing more business or marketing focused projects for clients – again leveraging your PM skills.

Small Business Marketing Austin

Helen asks…

Should I begin a business hosting murder mystery events and parties?

I’m totally into murder mystery parties and have been hosting them since high school. I also recently graduated from law school but have reservations about being a lawyer. I want to start my own small business doing murder mystery events but my friends think it’s nuts because there’s no market for that type of thing (we live in Austin, TX). Can anyone provide input?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Right off the RT 29, Burtonsville, there are restaurant which has murder mystery night. Their parking lot was always full every time I passed by. Good fun place to eat with your friends.
I think your friends have good point that there are very little market for the service, but there are very few businesses provide this kind of services as well . Low demand and lower supply. If you believe our market economy of supply and demand, than you might have a chance. Make sure you plan whole things before you begin. Good luck.

What is the development like in Killeen, TX?

I plan on moving to the Killeen, TX/Copperas Cove, TX area within the next 3 months. What is this area like? Are there a lot of businesses? How is the job market? Any information or sites where I can get this kind of information would be helpful.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Hello :)

I lived in Killeen for 4 years and the area has grown quite a bit. I f you are off post there are lots of new shopping areas and the local mall is not too far. Although it is a small area, you can always find something to do since it is a military town HOWEVER use caution when checking out car dealerships becuase they try to scam most people (take it from me) – The job market is on the low end of the pay scale because most soldiers are on a limited income so the pay wages for non-soldiers is much lower than in Austin or Dallas for example. Here are some #’s to help you get started … Wishing you all the best !

Business Consultant Blog

Donald asks…

How can I advertise my local photography business?

I’m working for a local photographer who really needs more customers. She hired me to run her website and facebook page, but she’s really pushing for me to find out more ways to advertise her website and business. What are some creative, simple, free, or at least cheap ways to get the word around the area about her business?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Hello Cady,

There are several things you can do to help promote her photography business.
1.) Write a press release. This is a really good way to promote her business.
2.) On her website, I recommend she offer a FREE gift to prospective customers.
Offer a free gift to the next ten customers who pay to have themselves
photographed.

This will create traffic to her website like crazy! It will also draw alot of customers
to her photography studio.

3.) Place a message on her business card, saying first time buyers will receive
a FREE gift when they purchase a photograph. Limited time offer – one free
gift per customer.

4.) Promote the company using discussion groups and mailing lists.

5.) Place a “blog” on her website. A blog creates additional traffic because
it automatically adds extra content to a website. Search engines love
websites with lots of content.

This will also raise the ranking position of her website with search engines.

Companies Hiring In Austin Tx

Jenny asks…

Graduate Schools for Starting a Start-up?

I want to go to graduate school in computer science, but I am also thinking about starting a tech company. Which schools do you think the best ones in the point of view starting a tech company (considering their locations etc.)
They don’t have to be in top-10 or top-50 ? Especially in USA and Europe. Thanks.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

In the US, there are centers of the tech/computer industries in and around Boston, in Silicon Valley near San Francisco, and in the Research Triangle Park area of the Carolinas. These are pretty much all areas where there are major computer science schools – MIT, Harvard, BU, Northeastern and etc. For Boston, Berkeley and Stanford for Silicon Valley, UNC Chapel Hill for the Research Triangle Park area. Boston and Silcon Valley are the big two, but you’ll find these sorts of computer industry clusters around any area that has a strong CS school and a decent economy. So there are some in Pittsburgh, around Carnegie Mellon, around U Toronto in Canada, in London due to Imperial College, Oxford and Cambridge, and naturally, there are clusters around the big computer companies – in Washington State and in Vancouver, etc due to Microsoft, hiring out of U Waterloo and U Washington, around Austin TX due to U Texas Austin, in Madison, Wisconsin due to U Wisconsin, and so on.

It can be important to think about what sort of tech company you hope to start, and who its customers might be, and then determine if those customers are clustered anywhere. If they are, you could locate there and have an advantage. For example, medical devices in eastern Mass, finance in Boston or NYC, insurance in Hartford CT, big pharma in NJ, surf culture in FL and CA and Hawaii, the military, the US government, Vermont for environmental services, etc.

Richard asks…

Yellow Cab of Austin – sexual assault?

if a personal is sexually assaulted by a Yellow Cab driver (Austin, TX) can they be sued? I’ve been told that since they are independet contractors that the answer is no. But, if seems that the cab company should be liable somehow.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Generally, no.

Your only possibility may arise if Yellow Cab claims to background check its contractors before hire and this man has a history as a sex or violent offender.

Then you can sue under a failure to exercise due dilligence.

International Business Consulting Firms Nyc

John asks…

Starting a business vs. working for a company?

Hi. I have just been offered a job as a consultant at Boston Consulting Group. I would work in NYC. My goals in life is to become rich really early, have a family, have a mansion, and have a luxury NYC apartment. I got an MBA from harvard business school. This job at BCG would pay six figures each year, and after ten years, I would hopefully be promoted to partner and make 1 plus million a year. I would stay another 5 years with the firm after being promoted to partner. I would then take my business management skills I learned from BCG, and go to a fortune 500 media company like viacom international and apply for a senior position. I would then hopefully be promoted to an executive and make multi millions a year. I would the retire at around 55.

If I were to start a company, I would start a consulting firm that consults it’s clients on what they need to do with there websites or web companies to acheive specific goals. I am great with determining what a website needs to get traffic, revenue, etc. Or, I would start a website where users could pat questions about their website and how they could do better. Other users would then post replies. The winning user who posted the best reply would receive points that can be used to ask a question, or turned into cash. I would charge a user cash to get points in order to post a question.

Many people tell me that the only way to get rich is to get a good paying job and climb the corporate ladder to riches. I strongly believe this and plan on doing so. However, other people say start your own company because you worm your own hours and get as much cash as you want, even though it is an expensive startup and has huge potential risk.

Although I would tell someone making a poor income to quit their job and start a company, in my position where I have opportunities to have super paying jobs that could easily make me super rich, I am not sure if I should either bother starting a business. Maybe when I’m retired, I could start it as a fun project, because then I will have the time and the money to start up the company.

Any ideas?

Only way to get “rich” is to own a company or prostitute yourself for a corporation….not to bust your bubble but a degree from Harvard Business School doesn’t mean squat and may even work against you.
Harvard is very much over rated and stuck more in tradition vs being innovative. I read a book yrs ago entitled The End of Competition which had overtones of social Darwinism and ironically it came from Harvard..As a scientist I will tell you that to compare a natural ecosystem to business and to the coin the term “Business Ecosystem” is a false analogy that reeks of scial Darwinism. My point is that this is the type of crap that emmanates fro Harvard Business School and frankly it makes most people sick and I hate to tell you this but your degree will keep you out of more places than it will get you into. What company would want someone who has been tainted with the philosophy of Herbert Spencer and the insainity associated with his Social Darwinism?…especially in this insane economy.. .Emphasize on making a difference…and realize a degree is just an expensive piece of paper…or maybe they didn’t teach you that at Harvard?

Linda asks…

Starting a business vs. working for someone else?

Hello. I just got my MBA from harvard business school, got my undergrad from Cornell, and have taken many business management courses. I currently have job offer at Boston Consulting Group as a consultant. I will be working in NYC, and I get to travel every week (I love business travel.). I would love to retire young and very rich. I would like to have my own family, a mansion, and a luxury apartment in NYC. So far, i would like my career to be as follows.

1. I would work as a consultant at BCG for 10 years. Each year, I would be making a six figure salary.

2. After ten years, I would still be with the company and hopefully be promoted to partner ( this company has great job growth rate).

3. I would stay and be partner for 5 years making 1 plus million dollars a year.

4. After five years as partner, I would take my skills I learned from BCG (management consulting, business management), and apply for a senior management position at a fortune 500 company specializing in media such as viacom international (MTV, vh1 , paramount pictures, etc.). After some time at the company, I would hopefully be promoted to an executive level and hopefully make multi millions a year, until I retire at around age 55.

I know these are big goals, but they are my goals.

Now for the question…..

I also have an entrepreneur spirit. I would like to start an online company. The company would be a consulting firm that consults clients regarding their websites, web companies, etc. I am great at determining what a website needs to do in order go achieve certain goals ( revenue growth, target market, marketing, turn over rates). Currently, not to many companies do this, and I would like to fill the gap. Or at least, I would like to create a site where users could post a snapshot of their website and post info on what they want to achieved from there sites. Then other users could review there sites, and give the user some tips. The user who gave the other user tips would receive points which could be redeemed for cash. However, I would make money by selling points to users to post there website on our site. If no one posted on someones site within a month, the user could get refunded or keep the points for later use.

Many people tell me that in order to get rich, you need to study hard, get good grades, go to a good college, get a good job, and make your way up the corporate ladder. That is one of my options. And it is a proven way to become very rich. I have the grades, I have the great colleges on my resume, I have a six figure starting job already being offered to me, and I plan on climbing the corporate ladder and achieve wealth and knowledge a long the way.

Other people say you should quit your job, start a company, work your own hours, and make as much money as you want. However, starting your own business has huge risk, huge potential loss, and has huge start up costs. However if you do it correctly, you could make many millions.

What are your suggestions? Should I go for my career path as planned and climb the corporate ladder to riches, or should I start my own company with risk and hopefully get rich? Some of you might suggest to do the company on the side, however I don’t have time due to the many hours of working at an consulting firm. For some people who are making low income at their jobs, I can see and agree that they should quit and start their own business. But with me, with potential career posit s that could make me millions, I am not sure if I should stick with a job, or venture off into my own company?

David asks…

how genuine are all these work from home /online stuff?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

0%. Consider them all scams.
Here is an example of some. Funny how people keep falling for them.
The Federal Trade Commission has gone after some 500 work-at-home schemes in recent years. Still, the recession and joblessness are mighty incentives for people to try programs that promise easy money. Our reporter sampled a few such offers. The result: He won’t be giving up his day job.

‘Stuff envelopes! Get paid!’
The setup
“Get paid $5 per envelope, up to $1,276.57+ weekly … stuffing envelopes and mailing company circulars,” said an EASYHomeJOB online ad, which also said you could earn as much as $350,000 a year.

The hook
We signed up for a free trial membership but then had to pay $67 for the EASYHomeJOB System, sold by IVI Global Enterprise of Buffalo, N.Y. The company, like the others mentioned here, had a Better Business Bureau rating of F.

The sting
The payment bought us access to a Web site with a guide to selling get-rich-quick information. Here’s how it works: You place classified ads—”EARN $1,500+ Weekly”—online or in print to get customers to send you $5, for which you’ll mail them reports such as “How to get big dollars in your mailbox every day!” and circulars for products like the EASYHomeJOB System.

We tried to contact the company by phone and e-mail but got no response.

‘Assemble products at home’
The setup
“Stop sending money to ‘stuffing envelopes’ scams … make money by assembling products in the comfort of your own home,” said Wes-State Mortgage, of Eugene, Ore. We spent $26 for its Home Employment Directory, which lists companies seeking home assemblers.

The hook
We chose one listed company at random, Gone Fish’n Tackle, of Austin, Texas, and went into the business of tying fishing flies. “If you make 3,000 flies, you will be paid $1,500 … make 20 to 40 flies per hour,” the listing said.

The sting
We paid $50 to Gone Fish’n for a starter kit that enabled us to make 24 flies. The company would pay us $12 for those, if they passed inspection, leaving us $38 in the hole. To continue, we’d have to keep buying materials: $40 for the makings of 144 flies. We’d have to spend $890 on materials, including the initial outlay, to produce 3,048 flies, for which we’d be paid $1,524. That nets $634 for about 190 hours of labor, or slightly less than $3.35 per hour, about half the federal minimum wage.

Heather Smith, president of Gone Fish’n, says the company sells 1,500 starter kits per year, but only 20 regulars have actually made a business of selling flies back to the company. “Selling of the kits is where we make our money,” she says, adding that dissatisfied customers can get a full refund within 45 days of purchase.

‘Start an Internet business’
The setup
“Learn how to make $107,389 in six months, just filling out forms and doing searches on Google and Yahoo,” said an ad for the Google Money Tree kit. The fine print disclosed that it’s not affiliated with Google. A ticking “Order now!” clock added urgency; the price of the “free” CD kit would shoot up to $197 in just 15 minutes.

The hook
You must give your credit-card number to pay $3.88 shipping for the CD. By so doing, you consent to let Google Money Tree charge your account $72.21 a month for access to its Web site if you don’t cancel within seven days.

The sting
The Web site and compact disc give disorganized information on selling on the Internet. The BBB has 478 complaints on file against the company related to unauthorized credit-card charges; it failed to respond to 460. Calls to the company for comment took us to a call center in an undisclosed location. Managers promised to pass on our request to the company.
