“ What to expect of the first year? ”

Mayra V. asked a question in topic Life at the Company
to Any Strategy, Consulting & Management Insiders

When Joining the Tech Consultancy team, what are the main activities and the daily activities you perform during the first year?
Analyst, Deloitte UK

First of all, you will go through 6 weeks of very thorough training, and you will also have to study for a couple of exams (given by the British Computer Society). After that, your daily activities will vary greatly depending on the project you are on...and you may even be on several different projects during your first year.

You will probably be working on client site as part of a team of Deloitte people, and you could be involved in helping to gather client requirements, plan and manage their IT projects, communicate with their key stakeholders, design and build their IT solutions, or help train their staff. I hope that helps!

Hi Mayra,

I echo what my colleague Niamh has said. You will also have an analyst checklist that has to be completed over the initial 2 years (which covers a lot of the points mentioned by Niamh). This will ensure that by the end of the 2 year graduate programme, you will be consultant ready!
