Our mission

Our mission is to launch high impact careers.

It may sound highfalutin, but we promise you, it's anything but. Because behind every memorable career, you'll find an origin story full of grit, determination and hard work.

At RocketBlocks, we're big fans of good, old fashioned elbow grease and a solid work ethic. Landing a top tier job isn't easy and there will always be a critic to tell you why you're not good enough: no Ivy League degree, your GPAs too low, not the right major(s), the wrong professional background, lower test scores, etc. Remember, it is not the critic that counts. That doesn't mean it will be easy though, but then again, no challenge worth achieving is.

So here is our RocketBlocks promise: you bring the work ethic and elbow grease, we'll bring the tools. We've designed our product so that you can drill yourself on the key skillsets you'll need to demonstrate in your consulting interviews, and ultimately, on the job too.

Whether it's providing the initial context of what a consulting career is like, learning how to rip through breakeven analyses at high speeds or structuring nebulous business problems, RocketBlocks has you covered.

Let's get started.
