What did you study in college?
I studied a Masters in Electronics and Computers Engineering in UCD.
Why did you choose the Deloitte Graduate Programme?
I chose the Deloitte graduate programme because it is a perfect mix of technical and non-technical trainings, social activities and rich culture which is an ideal environment for a new graduate when joining his or her dream company.
At one of the Deloitte graduate events I attended, I had the opportunity to meet some of the Deloitte people, who were very open about the culture in Deloitte, work-life balance activities performed, learning and development and the sports and social clubs that one can join. This made me confident in choosing the right step in my early career and I knew immediately that this is was right company for me, as I came to know the real benefits for Deloitte is its people and community.
What did you find most challenging about the working world?
The most challenging thing about the working world is the competition, which can be taken both in positive and negative manner. I love challenges, so I take challenges in a positive manner and by overcoming them, it makes me feel stronger and confident in every step.
Working with different people, with different mind-sets is another challenge that comes up quite often in consulting world, but knowing the people and working with them in their manner, makes it much easier. Deloitte has various structured learning programs which helps us to know and understand our colleagues and different people, so it much easier than I thought it would be.
I wish I knew how awesome my job would be. I thought it would be regular job with same work done each day. But now I can say I was totally wrong.
How has Deloitte helped you build your career?
Deloitte has helped me build my career by giving me right opportunities to learn and grow in each phase of my graduate journey. I have my own learning pathway, mandatory trainings, eLearning’s and personal trainings that I can complete throughout the year. My team made sure that I had the right amount of time to complete these trainings, even when working on a client project. I have learnt through my experience that both personal and professional growth of an individual is of utmost importance to Deloitte.
Do you have any mentors and if so what is their value to you?
Each and every person I have met in my team has in some way motivated me and helped me in growing my skills. Their value is incomparable in my life. I really value their advice and cannot thank them enough in there help towards progressing my career.
What is the most valuable thing you have learned since you joined the workforce?
The most important thing I have learned since joining the workforce is that we always have to keep a positive spirit in whatever work we do. Also, Respect and integrity plays an important part when working in a team both internal and external to Deloitte. Furthermore, I have learnt that ask as many questions as you want, as no question is a silly question.
What’s one thing you wish you knew when you finished college?
I wish I knew how awesome my job would be. I thought it would be regular job with same work done each day. But now I can say I was totally wrong, as my job includes work that is different each day, includes travel to various countries along with regular social and sports events. All this makes me happy and satisfied by my choice of company after finishing college.
