Management analysts
Description: Companies hire management analysts to solve problems. The work varies with each client and from project to project. When a management team realizes there is a problem, it may call in a consultant to collect and review information, figure out where and why the problem is happening, and decide how to fix it. The job may require frequent traveling. Some management analysts work for consulting firms. Others are selfemployed consultants.
