180 Degrees Consulting works effectively by recruiting from a diverse range of backgrounds and bringing together a broad range of skills this provides. If you are a student brimming with bright ideas and have a desire to make a real difference with your skill-set, then we encourage you to apply so that we can help you realize your potential.
As a 180 Degrees consultant, you will work with leading OC-based non-profits and tackle their toughest problems as an organization. You will be supported by our network of Engagement Managers, Executive Board members, and mentors from professional management consulting firms. A variety of training sessions, social events, and networking opportunities are also held throughout the quarter to further complement the consultant experience.
During the Spring of my sophomore year, I was an Engagement Manager for our project with a small nonprofit that brought awareness to teen homelessness. I managed my own team of consultants and served as the direct point of contact with the client. This experience allowed me to build more confidence as a leader and become more comfortable with my fellow club members."
I have learned how to effectively conduct research, sharpened my presentation skills, and increased my logical reasoning abilities. These skills translate over to many other aspects of my life, and I appreciate 180 for refining these skills. I also continue to learn more with every 180 project I take on!"
