From Lisa Lee ’13:
This Sunday Deloitte Consulting will be hosting an information session for Wesleyan students who are interested in joining Deloitte as a Business Analyst after graduation.
The Business Analyst (BA) program provides the opportunity to work with Deloitte teams to help implement new processes and develop strategic solutions for clients across all industries and service lines. Given this line of work, strong candidates should be top academic performers with solid analytical skills.
Throughout the program, Business Analysts will also develop consulting skills and capabilities by collaborating with peers and senior practitioners on a day-to-day basis. As such, top candidates should also possess strong interpersonal skills and demonstrate leadership qualities and a strong work ethic.
The event will feature Deloitte professionals, many who are also Wesleyan alumni, with pizza and a meet and greet afterwards.
Note: Last day for resume drops is 11:59PM on October 8th.
Date: Sunday, September 29
Time: 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Place: Wesleyan Career Center
