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.
