"Living the Dream!..."
Brian (BS '09) - 01/17/2012
Brian (BS '09) was a Kelley Scholar and graduated with a 3.95 GPA. He took a different career path after graduation, working for Campus Crusade. Two years later he began to pursue his career dream, consulting in Chicago. Brian knew it would be a challenge. Although very sharp, he was competing with those already in the field. Once he discovered the Kelley Consulting Network, he had a tremendous response from alumni. Kelley alums like career coach Steve (BS ’84), consultant Steve (BS ’09), financial analyst Kitty (BS ’98), operations analyst Meghan (BS ’11), and many more took time to meet Brian for lunches and help in lots of ways. In the end, Todd (BS ’03, MS ’04) put Brian in direct contact with an Accenture recruiter who interviewed him immediately. In a tough economy, with no experience, in a saturated job market, after only 6 months of networking and 3 rounds of interviews, Brian was offered and accepted a consulting job with Accenture in Chicago!
