Many students consider the field of consulting, but few know exactly what being a consultant is because the term covers such a broad range of industries and is used loosely to describe a person who gives advice.

Companies and organizations hire consultants to help recommend solutions to a problem which is impacting its efficiency, profits or growth. Consultants provide an outside perspective, extra highly specialized or skilled employees, and a potential safe environment to work on challenging problems. Specialty areas may include, but not limited to, non-profits, government, banking, energy, education, human resources, information technology, health care, and management.
