For strategy roles and consulting roles, they have more stringent hiring process and the numbers hired on a yearly basis for consulting or strategy are consulting very little, way lesser than those technology roles that are being mass hired monthly. So if you arenít offered a strategy or consulting role when you join Accenture, it means you arenít qualified for it, let alone say doing an internal transfer from a totally different function. Not putting you down, but this is the facts, thatís to be fair to those who have gone through a tougher hiring process of interviews etc as compared to the mass hire for those business and integration/delivery roles. Even strategy or consulting project specific roles are kept for those consulting analyst-managers or strategy analyst-managers.

So short answer to your question is no.
Just to correct you, the interview for consulting isnít much harder than tech. Itís pretty much behavioural questions as well. Letís not lump strategy and consulting together because you do know that they are different.

To the OP, yes itís entirely possible to switch from Tech to Consulting. You just need to find roles that are more consulting focused and more importantly, you need someone that is willing to give you a chance.

For Strategy wise, itís WAYYYY harder because there is a cap to the headcount in each project. You are better off finding a strategy role outside of the company imo.

Those who go tend to be from strategy and consulting dte, aka consulting hires and strategy hires. Have not seen someone in technology function go into MBB to do consulting or strategy work, maybe go do digital got chance.

Best way is to go do a good MBA, open doors for you Liao

To correct you, the interview for consulting isnít just behavioural questions lmao. Clearly never to been one and youíre not even a consulting analyst/consultant/manager etc, how do you even share with the op. Just speak to any of the current consulting hires, the process is different than those mass hired in as technology analyst (business and integration arch or delivery roles).

If itís just behavioural questions so easy, I should see everyone getting an offer there lmao. Know that weíre speaking as those who are hired this year or well maybe end of last year onwards. Our manager is the MD for strategy and consulting, you expect someone holding this role with vast experience and having interviewed many to give a simple interview? Think again.

Troll donít give fake news.

We donít lump strategy and consulting together lmao, just FYI, now strategy and consulting functions are merged tgt under one DTE. Canít believe you donít know this, this combination is already present since 2021.

Goes to show you arenít even in the company, still expect to give ďadviceĒ.

Itís for consulting hires can do strategy roles in projects and strategy hires can do consulting roles in projects. But not for tech or other functions to take on strategy or consulting roles in project.

This is a fact. And no, consulting interviews arenít just behavioural interviews, think twice before speaking. This is the dumbest sentence Iíve heard or seen thus far.

Consulting wannabe stop being a troll and spreading false news.

To the op, why do you want to do consulting or strategy work? Your interest or the name itself? Do you know what entails as part of consulting or strategy work? You may have a chance trying to go into consulting, but strategy well itís almost impossible. Even if they headcount and want to bring in people, the first audience to consider would be consulting analysts to managers from the same Strategy and Consulting DTE (strategy and consulting are merged tgt in a dte, not separate as what this troll is saying). You may need to think about the reasons why you want to switch out of technology, especially assuming you have good amount of experience in tech.

Will be happy to discuss more on this, but not with trolls spreading fake news.

LMAO. Sure preach all you want. How many of the consulting analysts have to do a case interview to get in? So far I havenít heard of any.

Iím part of S&C and Idk whether youíre delusional or what. Yeah they merged strat and consulting together but they do very different things. Strategy peeps are more focused on the high level roadmap, company vision in the next 5 years and some financial forecast to justify the ROI of their strategy. Consulting analysts are more focused on understanding business processes and identifying the gaps/inefficiencies in them. They will then do market research to recommend a solution to reengineer the process. There can be overlaps between the 2 and no one is stopping consulting folks to take on strategy roles. However, do note that chances like this are rare. Letís not forget that strategy folks are paid higher + are not part of TAP. So how are strat folks the same as consulting folks?
