What is WCS Consulting Services?
Formerly known as Live Projects, WCS Consulting Services provides a platform for students to get involved in real-life consulting with a client, collaborating with corporates, businesses, start-ups and charities on a local and national level. The tasks required of students during collaboration projects range from creating and evaluating marketing strategies, investment options, logistics and scheduling, database creation and data-mining, and so much more. Projects typically last 3-5 months, depending on how soon and how well the goal provided by the client has been achieved.
How are the teams structured?
In each team, there will be 3-5 student consultants, one project leader and one professional director. The project leader will be selected amongst the team members, while the project director will be from one of our execs or those experienced in doing such projects.
What would I do as a student consultant?
In collaborating with your team members, you will be working on the project while building up skills that will boost your chances of employment, e.g. managing a professional relationship a client, managing your time, successfully working in a team, and so on. This entails meeting with your project directors for advice and going on training programs offered by the society. By the end of the project, you will gain an understanding of the type of work and responsibilities that a professional handles.
