As a consultant, you need to develop an in-depth analysis and evaluation of the selected agency’s ethics, cooperation, leadership, and legal decisions, and then provide recommendations for improvement. Therefore, you will conduct interviews with agency representatives and research related academic sources and government websites. The analysis will be read by the VP of accounts and client support, as well as by the leaders of the agency for whom you are working.
