Why should you participate?

  • EXPERIENCE A REALISTIC JOB PREVIEW: PTCMW & PDRI will present a real challenge local organizations are currently facing in a realistic RFP (request for proposal) format. Students will present as if they were external consultants bidding on a consulting project. Solutions will be judged by expert practitioners based on theory, technical merit, and innovation.
  • EXPAND YOUR PROFESSIONAL NETWORKStudents currently enrolled in local I-O and related programs will be assigned to a group made up of students with varying levels of expertise, knowledge, and from different programs.
  • DEVELOP CONSULTING SKILLS: Teams will be responsible for building an effective team, developing products, and presenting results.
  • BUILD COMMUNICATION SKILLS: Each team will present to an independent panel of expert I-O judges and receive invaluable feedback.
  • WIN PRIZES: The winning team will receive $2,000. The first place team along with the runner-up will also receive free 2016 PTC student membership and free admission to PTCMW’s 2016 Talent Connection & Networking Event in November, where they will be recognized in front of 200 local I-O academics and practitioners.
