Management Consulting Recruiters

Lizzie asks…

do I need to take the gmat for entry level management consulting positions in the usa?

Hey, I’m planning on making applications to various different firms in the USA for an entry level position in management consulting, and I’m wondering whether it was routine for the recruiters to ask for applicants to take the GMAT. thanks

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

The GMAT is a standardized exam for graduate business schools in the US and abroad. If you attended school outside of the US or a non-accredited undergrad business school, the firm in question may seek to identify your existing skill set with the GMAT in addition to other survey methods. They may also seek an example of your presentation skills to demonstrate your English language skill.

David asks…

Is economics a good major to enter management consulting or private equity?

I’m planning on majoring in economics, but considering business, for my bachelors degree. Is econ good for a top consulting firm? What about something in private equity, venture capitalist?
It has to be Ivy league? So ALL consulting and private equity firms ONLY recruit from ivy league? How about Georgetown or Northwestern, that’s not good enough? My friend goes to Emory, is that good enough? Strictly Ivy?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Yes if you are ivy league and plan on getting a further degree. Most recruiters for top financial firms only hire from ivy league schools and this makes everything in this field very hard to get into.

Business Consulting Websites

Mary asks…

How can I make my business website come up when people search my name?

I would like to make it so if people google my name they would find my personal consulting website, currently the company I am working with is coming up instead. How can i change this?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

If your web site (domain) does not have your name in it, get the domain name, if it is still available. If it is not available anymore, look for derivatives like “YourNameConsulting.com” etc.

Include your name in the “Title” tag (HTML) of your personal web site’s pages. Also use it in the HTML content as well, including header tags (H1..Hx) and normal paragraphs. Use your name in the anchor text of the links to your web site home page whenever possible, on your own site and on other web sites (LinkedIn, forums, social media web sites etc.).

Include a link to your personal web site whenever possible and appropriate, such as your profile page on other web sites.

If companies that you work/worked for mentioned your name on their own web site, make sure that they make the name to a link to your personal consulting web site. If they did not do that already, ask them to change this for you.

If your name is in the domain name itself, its easier to make sure that your name is in the anchor text of links to your web site, because people often use the URL to a site also as the anchor text of the link (especially, if a CMS converts URL’s automatically to click-able links).

Ruth asks…

I want to learn how to start a business and run a business in the philippines. anyone know anything online?

usually when i google it, all i get is consulting websites that don’t offer all the info i need.

I need an ultimate guide. something online, or maybe a store i can purchase it from.

I need it for both starting/registering and also how to run a business.

Thanks.

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

95% of the 250,000 expats would also like to learn how to start a business in the Philippines (and make a profit).

The other 5% has found a pretty good business in selling “How to Books” to expats who want to learn how to start a business and run a business in the Philippines…..

Even Filipinos are trying to figure out how to start a successful business here in the Philippines.

As the old saying goes “If You Want To Make a Small Fortune In The Philippines, You Have To Start Off With A Large Fortune.”

Small Business Consulting Firms Atlanta

Ruth asks…

How to start a business in Atlanta Ga?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Instructions

1

Write a business plan. Include a description of your business and explain how you intend to market, finance and manage it. Consider contacting the Georgia chapter of the Small Business Association (SBA), located in Atlanta, for help in writing your plan and getting started with a business. Small business consulting firm SCORE Atlanta also offers free counseling and low-cost classes for small business owners.
2

Determine the area of town that will be the best fit for your business. Atlanta neighborhoods such as the Virginia-Highlands, Little Five Points, Buckhead, East Atlanta, Downtown, Midtown and Morningside have distinct characteristics and appeal to different consumer groups. Also consider your home location, varying rents and available properties when choosing a location. Consider purchasing an existing business similar to the one you wish to start.
3

Verify that all local ordinances in your chosen area allow for your type of business. Some businesses, such as consultants and photographers, often work out of their homes. If this applies to you, be sure that no neighborhood or homeowner organizations forbid such businesses. If you intend to see customers in your home, verify that local zoning allows for this activity.
4

Arrange for financing. This may be as simple as setting aside a percentage of your personal savings or as complex as applying for and obtaining an SBA loan from your bank. You may need to arrange for private financing, recruit backers or even take a partner in order to finance your business.
5

Determine how you wish to structure your company and file all required paperwork with the state. In Georgia, you may form a sole proprietorship, a Limited Liability Company (LLC), a general partnership, a non-profit corporation, an S Corporation or a C Corporation. You may wish to hire an attorney and/or a certified public accountant to help you choose the structure that’s right for you and to assist you in filing the required paperwork.
6

Name your new Atlanta business. Choose a unique name by searching the Georgia Secretary of State’s corporation registry. This is a free service. If you intend to do business outside of Georgia, you may also wish to use the United States Patent and Trademark Office website to search nationally for business names and trademarks. This service is fee-based on a sliding scale. In Georgia, if you have incorporated as an LLC, you will need to place the letters “LLC” after the name of your business.
7

Find a property, if you need one, and arrange a lease or purchase agreement. Both the City of Atlanta and Fulton County will require a place-of-business address for your required paperwork.
8

File for all permits, licenses and certificates required by the State of Georgia, City of Atlanta, Fulton County and your neighborhood municipality. You will need an Atlanta or Fulton County Business Tax Certificate (business license). You may apply for this certificate through the City of Atlanta Business Tax Division or the Fulton County Occupational Tax Division, depending on your location. You will also need federal and state employer identification numbers, a local health permit and an occupation permit. You may also need a signage permit and/or an alarm permit.
9

Prepare your selling space. Paint your walls, bring in office furniture and supplies and hire employees, if necessary. If you are operating a retail business, bring in displays and stock your shelves with merchandise.
10

Advertise in advance. Consider advertising in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution or one of the many small publications specific to neighborhoods within Atlanta. Hold a grand opening or a neighborhood preview to attract customers. Consider joining the Atlanta, Metro Atlanta, Greater North Fulton or South Fulton Chambers of Commerce as appropriate to your location.

Richard asks…

Is my current salary reasonable, and what should I negotiate towards with my employer?

I am an analyst with a small consulting firm. I am coming up on being there for one year. I got a raise after only a few months, and if I make my maximum bonus currently make $37000 + health insurance. They suggested we might revisit the salary conversation next month at the time of my 1 year anniversary of being hired. I am 1 year out of college living in Atlanta, majored in Psych with minors in Marketing and Economics and 4 time Dean’s List Honoree. I do work lots of hours….. probably 55-60 hours per week. What is a reasonable salary expectation?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

This is a little weird because if you were working 55-60 hours and on salary then you would get $37,000 and no overtime and that’s what you agreed to in your contract. But in your verbage you said it’s $37,000 in bonus and not salary, so that’s weird. Only if you were an hourly employee were you supposed to get a raise after a few months. So which is it, are you hourly or are you salaried. If you are salaried then probably your contract would last for one year and is now probably up for renewal and at that time you could ask for what you need to live on. The social majors don’t earn a lot in the public sector unless you have your own business. It’s your “minors” that are pulling you thru this job. To me $37,000 sounds like a good income for an analyst position. If you look online you probably would find a list of salaries and you can see how high it tops off at, so that that top off point you’d know you should look to a different kind of position to increase your salary.

Right now it’s a tough time for business owners and the public because of poor economic times, and it’s still tough to get a job. So if you ask all they can say is no, but remember if you sign that contract then you will have to wait a year before you ask again.

Austin Tx Hotels

George asks…

How much should i ask to be paid working front desk at a hotel?

It is a hampton inn hotel in austin tx, pretty nice hotel in a nice area of town. I have never worked at a hotel before but lots of customer service experiance, my last job was at a bank with ending salary of $13.77, i’m sure they’re not gonna offer that much, but does it look bad if i ask for less than i was making at my last job? Thanks

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

I think you can ask for $13.77, mentioning that that is the level you were promoted to at your last job (even though you are pretty sure they will not accept the offer. All they can do is say no, and make you a lower counter-offer. At least you tried.

Donald asks…

i want to get internet at my apartment, but i have no phone service?

what kind of service should i get for my laptop/ipod? something with wifi? i don’t want to buy a landline phone service if i don’t plan on using it. who has good offers? (i’m in houston, tx)

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Supposing Time-Warner in Houston has similar pricing to their Central Texas (I live an hour north of Austin) market, I would suggest getting Road Runner cable internet from Time-Warner.

I have the fastest residential connection they offer and it costs me $55/month. I believe a standard residential connection is $40 or $45 a month.

You do no have to get any other services from Time-Warner. They will happily let you pay for just a cable modem.

Alternatively, if you want internet on the go, I would check out Clear (formerly Clear Wire). They offer unlimited usage plans for $40/month.

Headhunters Austin

Susan asks…

Where are some good places to see punk shows in San Marcos Texas?

i will be attending texas state at San Marcos and would like to know where to go to see HC/anarcho punk shows, none of that emo shit. traveling to Austin or San Antonio will be fine. if you know of any others feel free to tell. ( i want to be prepared for college) :p

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

You seem like a cool person.

Unfortunately, metal and folk indie seem to be the “scene” so it’s pretty hard to find a decent punk show. Headhunters houses a lot of punk shows, mostly local bands. Http://www.headhuntersclub.com/ That’s their website. Emo’s, Stubb’s, and Red7 all have the occasional punk show, you just need to keep checking their calanders online.

There’s a lot of other places around Austin to see live music, and a lot of them require you to be over 18 to get in. And if you’re an incoming college freshman like me, this really sucks.

Oh yeah, and all of the places I mentioned are in downtown Austin.
Good luck.

Small Business Marketing Austin

John asks…

Why does it cost so much more to fly into Austin vs San Antonio?

I live in southern California, and to fly to Austin on any airline, it costs at least $150 dollars more than it would to fly into San Antonio. It is the same on every airline. They are very close in proximity. Why does it cost so much more to fly into Austin?

AustinBusinessConsulting answers:

Austin is a smaller market, which usually increases fares.
They realize that if you are booking into Austin, it is most likely because you REALLY need to get there. And there is not a lot of competition.
The fact that Dell is located there, means they realize that business travelers are willing to pay more to get there, or else they could fly into San Antonio.

Michael asks…

What is the Best US Area To Relocate To For Us?

Does this sound like an area you live in or know of?
Objectives: Relocate out of city to:
>cooler climate in summer
>peaceful environment
>good schools and small community for children
>close enough to good-size city for business opportunities
>good employment rate
>good average household income
>ability to obtain electrical contractor’s license quickly
We are a young family in Tampa, Fl and this is our native area. I have done ok running an electrical contracting company but there has been many pitfalls associated with this city.
My wife and i are discussing taking our small children and moving to an area with a nice climate and a small population.
It would be ideal if I could get my electrical contractor’s license in this new, rural area and build a small customer base which would require nearby access to a city.
We love the climate that Boone, NC offers but the employment and/or business opportunities are scarce in NC
