Career Goal: Consulting

“My internship at Deloitte prepared me for my full-time role because I was able to hit the ground running on Day 1 of my first engagement. Additionally, I already had a network in place so that I could reach out to former colleagues to identify projects that would suit my interests.”

“Private Equity was probably one of the most rewarding classes I took. It’s a very challenging course because you are ‘cold-called’ and expected to opine on industries or businesses that you are completely unfamiliar with. That fast-paced course taught me how to focus on the things that matter and to speak on those things with a high degree of confidence. This is essentially what is expected of you as a consultant.”
