Why You Should Get Involved
1. Make a Significant Difference
Waving signs in protest or standing on the side of a road with a bucket collecting money are not the only ways to make a difference. A better way to make a difference is to improve the effectiveness of worthwhile organizations! Improved effectiveness means donations go further and more people can be helped both now and in the future.
2. Gain Hands-On Work Experience
Most internships and part-time work is boring, tedious, unrewarding, and not challenging. 180 Degrees is different. We give you the opportunity to get experience that employers value. You will be working on real projects with real clients and will be able to exercise real leadership!
3. Get Professional Training
180 Degrees has worked with leading top-tier consulting firms to develop our own tailored consulting methodology and consulting training program. You will receive professional consulting training from 180 Degrees, often in conjunction with representatives from McKinsey, BCG, Bain, or other professional services firms.
4. Obtain Valuable Life Skills
You will develop numerous transferable skills, such as teamwork, problem solving, oral and written communication, creative thinking, client management, and cross-cultural communication.
5. Work Directly with Amazing Non-Profits and Social Enterprises
You will experience first hand the fantastic work that many organizations are doing.
6. Experience Being a Consultant
What better way to learn about consulting and decide if you want to pursue a career in consulting than to experience it first-hand!
7. Solve Important Challenging Problems
Few things are more rewarding than working in a team to develop solutions to difficult problems.
8. Socialize with Like-Minded People
Because work is more fun when it doesn’t feel like work.
“I do not think there is a better value-for-time volunteering experience than being a 180 Degrees Consultant. It hits multiple birds with one stone – work experience, making a difference, and professional training. Why do these things separately when you can do them simultaneously?” – Nat Ware (Founder & CEO)
