“I had always been interested in consulting, and PwC was a dream come true. Babson CCD and Susanne Schneider-Kivelitz in particular guided me a lot in my job search. I participated in networking events, career fairs, and different workshops that helped me build my brand and prepared me for the opportunities that followed. I learned that I had to think of myself as a brand, and just like any brand, I had to market myself. The way you market yourself decides the course of your future and sets you up for success.”
