Why did you choose this firm and this role?
Choosing a career, let alone a firm is difficult enough when coming out of university. I decided to base my applications on what I felt was most important to me. Company culture. Deloitte consistently scored top marks with many other graduates, emphasing not only the opportunities to grow a career, but also the social side. After choosing a firm with a great culture, my next property was to choose a role that allowed me to travel, create client relationships, use logical thinking, and fundamentally make a difference. This where I felt becoming a consultant is technology would be a perfect fit for me.
