    Tech Consulting 101

    We invited four professionals working in the consulting industry, mainly focusing on Tech Consulting, to give a thorough overview of the industry for students who are interested in this field at UW. We aim to provide opportunities for both groups of students - individuals who have a basic understanding and those who are unfamiliar with the industry. By attending this event, students who already have a basic idea are able to develop a more comprehensive understanding, and students that are unfamiliar with the industry are able to discover a new potential career path.
