Looking back at graduation, is your career in supply chain consulting what you thought it would be?
Yes, overall it is what I expected when I decided to start my career. I had a general sense of the type of work I’d be doing; I even find myself referencing back to class material occasionally to help me on some projects.
What are key “surprises” you have experienced?
There are several key “surprises” so far. Firstly, I am surprised by how talented and capable my colleagues are. Given that all my work is project-based, I’ve been lucky to work with such highly capable teammates on every project, who are great listeners, fun to work with, and full of valuable nuggets of knowledge. I can safely say that even after three years, I have yet to learn a lot more from my mentors and teammates.
