Having said that, with all this I do not have a lot of spare time. Is there anything you could recommend I could do that would aid my application for a technology based role as I am conscious that what I do outside of my course doesn't focus on technology?
Thanks in advance.
Hi George - great question, you sound busier than us!
I would say keep doing what you're doing, and think about how your extra curricular activities are teaching you skills you can transfer to technology consulting. I.e. studying abroad gave you a chance to enhance your communication skills - in tech consulting we speak to both technical and business people and so our communication style/skills have to be flexible depending on our audience.
Thanks Tom. That is what I was thinking because I think I'd rather do my current commitments to the best of my ability rather than take on more and therefore make the quality of my work into everything as a whole suffer- so thanks for confirming that!
100% agree George - a diverse range of experience is the best. All the best with your application.
That is something that I was also curious about. I loved spending my year in France- speaking and studying in French every day but since Ive been back in England I haven't really had the chance to use it. Would there be opportunities for me to put my french into practice in a business environment at Deloitte?
Hi George, we often work with a portfolio or clients globally and colleagues in other countries. So I would say if you opportunity presents itself I am sure you can.
