Being a senior graduating this fall, I am currently in the process of searching for my professional career. After attending information sessions and the Career fair, I got a better understanding of what positions companies are currently offering, but going on the road trip shows a firsthand glimpse of what it would be like to work for these top consulting companies. Having an interest in Fidelity before the trip, it was interesting seeing what their company was like in the New York City office. While we were told that their main offices are located elsewhere, if I were to work for Fidelity NYC would be the place I would like. That is why I was excited to see what their office was like. I liked how throughout our tour their primary focus was on how we, as iSchool students, could work for Fidelity. They talked about the Leap program and I am very interested in it. Next, at JP Morgan, their primary focus was on the importance of security. It was nice to see a lot of Syracuse alumni currently working there at this presentation. At Bank of America, I believe that Rosa Ramos-Kwok was very inspirational. It was great to hear a woman with a manager position in a very well respected company. Also, at this visit they emphasized the importance of a company’s budget on technology (BOA’s budget is greater than Yahoo’s yearly revenue!) They are strong believers that technology provides a foundation for a customer base, but connecting all of the millions of users. At EY, it was also great to see so many familiar faces. They talked a lot about their TAP program which teaches how technology enables improved business performance. They explained how with working at EY, adaptability is very important because you may not know what you will be doing the next week. At our visit at Deloitte they explained how they use technology to solve business challenges by applying technology based innovation. Lastly, at Goldman Sachs, I enjoyed the most when they discussed how auditing allows you to build your expertise in multiple areas. After attending all of these consulting and finance businesses, what stuck out to me the most is that they all described their companies as “Technology based companies that specializes in ______.” This really stuck out to me because it shows that what I have been learning in the iSchool for the past 4 years will be applicable in my future.
