In addition to new hire training programs at Deloitte, you can configure your development by taking courses online or in your local office that align with your specific career interests.
The Consultant Training Program helps you develop the “hard” skills needed to understand clients’ problems and formulate thoughtful recommendations, and practice the “soft” skills needed to develop strong internal and external relationships. Part of the learning is through a week-long simulation working with a team of peers to solve a real business problem.
The Senior Consultant Training Program includes seminars on how to manage change, ask the right questions as consultants, framing discussions, and persuasion techniques. Participants work in teams on a simulated client engagement to solve many common client challenges.
