Management Leadership for Tomorrow’s (MLT) Career Prep program provides MLT Fellows with a winning professional playbook, 18 months of one-on-one coaching, and an accelerating network of 8,000 MLT Rising Leaders. We help Fellows gain career-accelerating skills not taught in classrooms, cultivate personal clarity, and connect with top employers for potential internships and full-time roles. Career Prep provides general programming across a variety of industries.

The Career Prep Director leading the Consulting sector is primarily responsible to direct the Consulting Team of full- and part-time Coaches, drive the 18-month personal and career development curriculum, develop seminar content, engage with corporate partners to learn more about their job opportunities, and own program evaluation. The Director understands and assesses the qualities required of successful candidates for top internship and career programs in this sector and bears the responsibility for ensuring the program delivers a class of highly qualified candidates to present to corporate partner organizations. To this end, the Director has a keen understanding of the success profile sought by companies looking for Consulting related majors, and nurtures and guides Fellows through their development until they exhibit these traits. 

The ideal candidate has a background in or works with Consulting professionals and has a track record of leadership and team management, a strong understanding of how to prepare undergraduates effectively for the recruitment and interview process for both internships and full-time roles as well as for on-the-job success in the sector. The Director must possess excellent interpersonal and motivational skills in order to initiate strong relationships and build rapport with program Fellows, corporate partners, and MLT staff.

About Management Leadership For Tomorrow

John Rice at CitiAs a Harvard MBA student in the early 1990’s, John Rice began delving into the reasons why there were few other students there who looked like him. He developed a thesis for a nonprofit organization that would provide the training, coaching and networks that traditionally have been unavailable to minorities. In 2002, after a successful career at Disney and the National Basketball Association, John left the private sector to found the organization he first envisioned in business school: Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT). Transforming Lives Today, MLT has transformed the careers and life trajectories of more than 6,000 Black, Hispanic and Native American women and men – from college students to seasoned executives. MLT partners with more than 100 leading companies, social sector organizations and universities to strengthen their recruitment and retention of diverse talent. Know-How. Navigation. Network. MLT’s distinctive model provides the know-how, navigation systems and network to ensure talented underrepresented minorities are able to get on and stay on the path to senior leadership.
