FAQ In Consulting

These are the three most common questions I get about consulting! The difficult part about consulting is that your experience really differs by location, firm, area and specialty. Ask anyone and they will say “it depends!“ These are generalized answers and I always recommend you to network to get a holistic view for your targeted area!

It is also excellent for people who are still trying to figure out what they want to do! I actually did consulting to figure out what I wanted to do with tech while having exposure to many different companies, industries and people!

Make sure to check out my video on YouTube if you want to learn everything about my experience at Accenture! I’m just one datapoint so make sure to network around and do your research!

My Tips on Salary Negotiation

Interviewing for a job is always nerve wracking but the part I honestly find the most nerve wracking is the salary discussions and negotiations because what if you said something wrong or screwed up your future earning potential? Know your worth! No one taught me this but I had to learn and research this on my own as well as attended Shang’s workshop! P.S. she has a course on salary negotiations! Check her out! https://lnkd.in/dXmNYBBh

Here are the three biggest tips I found the most helpful so I wanted to share it for everyone who is going through salary negotiation! It’s a lot of preparation and research ahead of time so you know what you’re working with! You wouldn’t go into an interview blind would you so don’t go into the “salary expectations” or salary negotiation process blind either!

Comment down below on tips you have for others as well! We all can improve!

I’m Officially a Noogler!

I’m officially a Noogler at @google with my lil Noogler hat! It’s been a long time coming, but going into the office the past few weeks in my new role in gTech Professional Services for Shopping Advertising Solutions Architect in the New York Office has been a dream!

Over the past few weeks I went to over 5 offices and met so many of my amazing and talented teammates, and I’m happy to be here to take everything in and learn as much as I can!

P.S. I guess my head is too small because this hat is huge even on its smallest configuration 😂

Ways to Learn and Upskill in Tech

For some reason when people ask me what they can do to learn and upskill in tech, most of the times the paid courses and training or higher education is the first thing that comes to mind. However, look at this list! MOST of this is free and accessible to anyone that has access to a device that has Internet connection!

When I try to learn and upskill in tech, I resort to YouTube for crowdsourced information (watching many different videos), cross reference Google, YouTube, Quora, or Reddit for answers on targeted questions, network with professionals in areas of interest on what they have done to get to where they are, and do a lot of personal projects and research. Google search and YouTube were my go to for troubleshooting, researching, and getting questions answered. All are free! Plus, you get to grow your network with amazing people!

How about you?

Even though I’m no longer in a consulting firm, there will still be tech consulting content (and I can be a little more candid now with no conflict of interest) as well and this time more content about my experience and time in a FAANG (or is it MANGA now?) company!

I’m all about transparency to allow others to make informed decisions about their careers and for people who didn’t know such careers and paths are available to them to start their journey!

How Covid affected consulting

The pandemic has changed the landscape of how we see work of the world. Consulting is no different! A lot of what consulting was known for was traveling to the client and sometimes spending more time sleeping in a hotel than in your own home. Pandemic has shifted firms and clients to realize you can do a lot virtually or at least reduce the travel. It also shifted priorities around from clients to prioritize moving to the cloud!

Some have even reevaluated their priorities and can’t handle the grind and travel anymore and left! Or even their firm or client travel has changed to reduce travel and that becomes a reason to stay! It’s different for everyone.

Thoughts? How has Covid affect you in consulting or do you have any hesitations entering into consulting because of these changes? Let me know!

A question I often get asked is usually a question I can’t answer! I can only really speak for my experience at Accenture, but I can’t really speak for everyone’s experience at other firms and even different roles or parts of Accenture!
