Young Professional - 2019/2020
Univeristy: Linköpings University
Degree: Master of Science in Business and Economics
Why did you join Opticos?
I wanted to work as a management consultant and be part of a journey. Opticos is a smaller firm with a high level of expertise and future-oriented approach but yet on a journey of growth and development. As a Young Professional, I saw great and fun opportunities to be part of shaping that journey.
Furthermore, the program included client assignments from start where we get the opportunity to work close with senior colleagues and develop in our role as a management consultant with new experiences and knowledge, something that was important for me.
What did you do before joining Opticos?
Before I joined Opticos I studied at Linköpings University where I finished a Master of Science in Business and Economics. I also studied abroad for a semester at San Diego State University. During my studies I worked part time at the Finance department of a staffing company.
How does Opticos support your development?
One key person from the start has been my development coach who supports my personal and professional development. We have regular meetings where formal and informal discussions take place. During the Young Professional Program, we are offered a package of courses that provides a valuable and deeper knowledge within many areas such as Excel, IT Strategy, Project Management etc. After the Young Professional Program and for senior colleagues, relevant courses are offered.
In addition to that, we are encouraged to reach out to each other and be helpful, share our knowledge and continuously evolve.
How does your work at Opticos challenge you?
I get the opportunity to work with professional co-workers and exciting client projects within different areas. Every new project, internal or client assignment, provides new perspectives, areas of knowledge and therefore new challenges. Working with different projects together with experienced colleagues gives the perfect opportunity to develop and learn from the challenges. My experience is that the development curve at Opticos is steep.
