The Epoch Times ran a feature story on a visit from students of the Greater Chinatown Community Association’s (GCCA) summer SAT class to PA Consulting Group’s New York office. The Epoch Times is the most widely distributed Chinese newspaper around the world, distributed in 36 countries.
GCCA is located in New York’s Chinatown and holds an annual summer SAT preparation class for high school students of immigrant families. As part of the programme, GCCA brought students to visit several businesses to give them the opportunity to learn about a variety of industries and future career options.
Approximately 20 high school students aged between 15 and 17, along with two adult chaperones, came to PA to learn about consulting. PA consultants provided the students with an introduction to consulting and a sense of what working as a consultant is like. Students learnt about the industries and sectors PA specialises in, and had the opportunity to work on a mini-case study to gain a sense of consulting as a career path.
The article quotes PA’s Chris Steel. He says: “In the current slowdown of the global economy, PA Consulting Group helps businesses to improve their competitiveness with experts in energy, financial services, pharmaceutical life sciences, government and public services and defence.”
