IBC Career Progression and Responsibilities
The career progression within Illinois Business Consulting is very similar to any other consulting organization. You typically begin as a Consultant. After a successful completion of a project as a Consultant and if you demonstrate leadership skills, you may be promoted to Project Manager. Since Project Manager positions are limited and we have many qualified candidates, not everyone will be promoted. After successfully completing a project as a Project Manager, those who display people management skills may be promoted to Senior Manager.
