In my Live Q&A a few months back, someone asked the question on what is the difference between advisory and consulting. I thought at the time I answered it well, but what better way than to actually make a dedicated video on this? I remember I was just as confused when I was a college student getting into consulting.

This is usually a question most people ask when looking into the Big 4. They are usually used interchangeably, so sometimes they are one and the same, but OTHER times, they are COMPLETELY different. I give you all the details and juice after I sat down with my friend to ask her some questions about the advisory practice in Big 4.

Stick around to the end where I ask the question on Fishbowl where we get true anonymous and honest insider information from Big 4 consultants! If you really want true insider information where you can ask anything and learn about anything with anonymity and honesty, check out Fishbowl! This is not sponsored. I use Fishbowl a lot on my own!
