It’s tough to be a senior consultant nowadays, and more and more of them are losing confidence in their own profession.
While the amount of people majoring in courses preparing people for a job as a senior consultant isn’t necessarily dropping, fewer and fewer people are applying to become senior consultants in the first place and the workforce itself is looking grim.
With so many senior consultants no longer sticking around, this begs the question:
What are they all doing now?
We were curious, so we looked through the resumes of former senior consultants to see what kind of jobs they were moving into after leaving the field. There were thousands of answers, so we made the cutoff at the top 100 jobs.
The full list of those jobs can be found below.
Here’s a quick look at the top ten most common jobs for former senior consultants:

But given that there are some very surprising and interesting items on this list, we’ve decided to highlight a few of those instead.
Here are some of the most interesting jobs of former senior consultants:
Some of these items are admittedly more attractive than one another as far as actually working the job goes, but one way or another, you’ve got to admit they’re eye-catching.
Using resume information from our database of over 7 million resumes, we looked at all resumes that listed senior consultant under their work history. Then we looked at which jobs showed up on their work histories following their stints as a senior consultant, sorting them by their most frequent.
That’s how we made the initial ranked list.
