Who To Follow On Twitter: Consulting Edition


When your consulting job is all about building relationships and communicating effectively, one of the best ways to practice is on Twitter, where you only have 140 characters to make a connection and get your message across.

Lucky for you, many consulting employers and campus recruiters are active on the social network, and looking for ways to connect with aspiring management and technology consultants.

Tell us who else Canada’s future consultants should follow on Twitter by leaving a comment at the end of the post!


Accenture Canada (@accenture_ca) and their campus recruiters have been leading the way on Twitter for a while now. Campus Recruiting Leader Lisa Kramer (@Recruit_Campus) was even chosen by students to win TalentEgg’s Campus Recruiter of the Year award in May, thanks in large part to her efforts to engage with students via Twitter! You can also follow Lisa’s colleagues Victoria Barreda (@barreda_vick) and Melissa Larson (@larson_mel).

The best part about following the Accenture Canada team on Twitter is that you’re not just following – you can ask questions about their management and technology consulting careers, and they often ask students for your feedback and ideas.



PwC isn’t just an accounting firm – they also hire entry level Consulting Associates into their new management consulting rotational program! Follow the firm’s campus Twitter account (@PwC_ca_campus) and National Campus Talent Acquisition Manager James Davidson (@voiceofjamesd) for all the latest information about consulting careers with PwC. If you’re in the GTA, follow Fiona Grieve (@FionaGrieve), Talent Acquisition Specialist in the GTA for the firm’s Tax and Consulting & Deals service areas. Don’t forget to check out PwC’s Brilliant Futures hashtag as well: #PwCBF



Follow IBM Canada‘s recruiters on Twitter (@IBMCANADACampus) as they visit campuses across Canada this fall. The tech giant is accepting applications from graduating students from a number of academic backgrounds, including business, technical and arts programs, for its Consulting By Degrees program until Oct. 10!



It’s called the Advisory practice at KPMG (@KPMGCampusCDN), but you get the idea. This firm hires students from across Canada into its Advisory practice, as well as others. You can also connect directly with campus recruiters Stephen Novalski (@SNovalski) and Julia Beniusis (@JuliaBeniusis).



Whether you just want to learn more about consulting or you’re actually interested in pursuing the Certified Management Consultant designation, we definitely recommend following @CMCCanada1.
