Day to Day

Everyday at work is different. Any given day I will have client meetings in order to pin point their major issues and decide how our team can best assist them. We will create GAP Assessments, graphs, charts, etc in order to help clients figure out what problems are prevalent in their business, what is the industry standard, and how can we help them solve their problems.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

College is the perfect time to define and refine what you are good at and where your passion lies. I would recommend thinking about what your interests are by taking a variety of courses in college. This will help you to be able to hone in on your skills. It is also important to focus on and build upon soft skills in college. Take on opportunities where you may have the chance to improve your public speaking and communication skills. These are key skills to have while serving clients.
