WHY CONSULTING

“I joined Accenture out of undergrad (it was Andersen Consulting at the time) mainly because I was not interested in doing one specific job. I wanted a breadth of experience and consulting provides the opportunity to work with different clients on various issues. I joined Deloitte out of business school because of the people at the firm and the ability to own my career.”

ONE THING LEARNED AT MSU THAT HAS AIDED CAREER

“It’s all about teamwork. You can succeed and have fun if you’re working with the right people.”

BIGGEST SURPRISE IN CONSULTING CAREER

“That I became a consulting lifer!”

ADVICE TO SOMEONE ASPIRING TO CONSULTING CAREER

“A positive attitude and desire to learn are your keys to success as a new consultant.”
