Madeleine Gartz, Accelerate
One year ago, studying my final year at KTH, I started looking for my dream job. It turned out to be easier said than done when you kind of know what you are looking for, but not sure where or even how to find it. I was looking for a job where I would continue to develop and learn new things, where I would be challenged, pushed and supported, and where going to work each day would be fun.
Fun might not be the first word that comes to mind when hearing the words management consulting, but at Ascend it truly is fun! Being a Junior Consultant, I have been given great responsibility from day one and I have realized that regardless of my juniority, I can contribute and bring things to the table. Working with exceptionally talented colleagues who include me in decisions, discussions and client interactions, makes me look forward to going to work in the morning. Though only a couple of weeks have passed since I started the Accelerate program, I have been part of multiple projects – both internally, as part of the marketing team, and externally, through both client projects and creating pitch material.
Ascend and the Accelerate program turned out to be a great match for me and the perfect way to start my career. I look forward to developing and learning new things in an environment that is fun, inclusive and exceptional!
