What is AI?

I’m by no means an expert in AI, but it is NOT perfect and will not take over humans. It would help speed processes, but it will still require human intervention.

There is data bias from AI and it’s only as good as your data was. There’s also a lot of bias with the data you put in, so it’s always very important to make sure you try to remove bias.

What did you think of the situation in the graphic? Are you surprised?

Do you need to code?

I did an Instagram reel before on 8 tech jobs without coding, and unfortunately the caption (that had a lot of tons of caveats and notes) dropped due to a glitch on Instagram, but many thought the roles I mentioned did require coding so I made this instead.

I still think coding is a very important skill to have regardless if it requires coding or not because it can help you with understanding the role and work or to actually do the work itself.

As someone who didn’t study computer science, there are many ways you can use your resources in school, out of school, on the job or internship, or around you. Free or not! This is how I got my experience and how you can as well! Even if my current job does not require coding, the logical thinking of understanding how code performs helps a lot in structuring your thinking interacting with a system.

The 10 BIGGEST MISTAKES I Made In MY FIRST YEAR AS A CONSULTANT

Got some juicy lessons that I learned during my first year as a consultant! OMG, I made so many mistakes (who hasn’t?), and honestly, I’m pretty sure no one would have guessed the last one, so definitely stick around for that one. I wanted to make this video so any of you that are about to start your job in consulting can be prepared for what there is to come and also to avoid making my mistakes. I also provide you some tips on what you can do instead to avoid these traps!

Types of Consulting

As a technology consultant at Accenture, of course I have preferences to tech, but I don’t think many people realize there are more to consulting than just management and strategy consulting. These are the biggest buckets in consulting, but there are still subsets of consulting under them as well. Some can even be focused on industries like healthcare or more specialized as well like change management.

Let me know in the comments which one you’re interested in pursuing or if you already are a consultant! Curious as to why it speaks to you as well!

What you THOUGHT you knew about Technology Consulting

This was a super fun video to make! I’m sure you may have thought of one of these misconceptions, but you’re going to have to watch to find out if you’re wrong!

I go over 6 misconceptions about technology consulting!

  1. Do you need to be badass all the time to succeed?
  2. Can you get promoted just from doing your job well?
  3. Can you be a good technology consultant as an introvert?
  4. How can you be a consultant if you don’t know anything?
  5. Do you need technical skills or a tech major?
  6. Do you need to code?

My channel focuses on professional development but I also highlight my experience, lifestyle, and insights into a career in technology consulting in hopes to encourage more women to consider this amazing career – especially in STEM!

WHAT would you do as a TECHNOLOGY CONSULTANT

I often get the questions on what exactly do technology consultants do on a day to day basis, and while that is a very difficult question to answer, and if you ask any consultant, they’re going to say “it depends.” I remember being a college student getting that same answer in all my informational interviews, but now that I’m actually IN the field, I have a clear image of what is out there and finally found a way to break it all down in a digestible format for you!

In this video, I go over the type of work and the type of projects you may expect as a technology consultant. As I only do software implementations, I’ve also asked other technology consultants and their experiences, so this should be a pretty comprehensive video on what kind of work you can expect to do!

How do TECHNOLOGY CONSULTANTS find PROJECTS

Something that differs greatly in the consulting world from the typical corporate world is how you find projects and work. Plus, what exactly do you need to do to even get staffed on a project?

In this video, I go over WHAT exactly is the staffing model, what’s the process, how can you get staffed, and some tips as well for you to find your first project or get staffed on a competitive and hot project! I also go over the subtle nuances of how this may differ in technology consulting.

Consulting is not for everyone, and frankly, staffing can be one of those things in the industry that can deter OR attract you to the career! It’s also one of those impressive nuggets of information that can really show the company you’re interviewing for that you truly understand what’s expected of you in the job and to succeed! 😉
