I think there must be people interested in Business Consulting so I start this new post for some discussion.
Why you are interested in Business Consulting?
It is cooler than technical guys, wearing formal dress, having interaction with different people every day.
Tips for get recruited by good even best business consulting company in U.S with mostly technical or quantitative background.
Anyone have good experience and would like to share?

For me, I think small consulting work is easier to get and do at your spare time. I am not onto the cooler aspect of biz consulting that much. Also it is a way to get more experience in certain fields.
When there is customer demand for certain things, you tend to have bigger motivation to dive into the tech for that area. Otherwise, it is hard to keep myself learning new technology because it is hard to get a focus on what to learn.
consulting business is promising, but I guess the hard part is to get customers. It seems easier to get customers if you know someone, rather than going to sites like elance.com etc. Those sites typically have cheap ass jobs, not worth it.

Maybe the best way to go for a consulting start is to put some small application/program on the Internet. Charge for small amount/dollars. Then see what sticks.
At least for me, I have made quite some small tools (java based) over time, and could just put them out there and put a price tag.
