Unicorn kitty doctor or consultant?
Consulting Foundations is a unique experience designed to support your understanding of our business, the way we approach consulting, and the important role you’ll play in helping clients reach for and realize their vision. If you’re interested in growing your technical expertise, we also offer several academies where you can build technical consulting skills quickly in a blended learning environment.
Data and analytics consultant, March 2019 cohort
"I’ve grown more in the past five months than in the past three years. People at Slalom don’t have a corporate mask on. Everyone supports each other and builds each other up. My associate consultant group was welcomed with open arms in our local market, and then we all flew to bootcamp and spent a week learning all about a project life cycle with people from all over the world. After that, the Data and Analytics Academy was a smaller group working together, and we got really close. Now, I’m on projects learning so much, and I feel like I have a huge support group."

Management consultant, August 2016 cohort
"The Consulting Foundations program is a phenomenal way to enter the business and technology industries and build a network. It was a really good career move for me because it allowed me to test and prove my skills and be a constant learner and continually improve, but within a safe environment. I was struck by how much support there was in the bootcamp, and I was really impressed with my cohort."

Consultant, August 2018 cohort
"My experience has really been defined by the relationships we get to build at a local level. I came to Slalom because I thought its staffing model was a true enabler and facilitator of its core values. It wasn't all just talk. People here are encouraged to pursue their interests, at every single level. It's invigorating to have that culture of perpetual learning, so many people passionate about what they're doing. Come with an open mind. Come eager to learn. You're going to be exposed to so much."
