I am currently in a business analyst role working on an OFAC compliance project. It is a unique role where I work very closely with my client partner to deliver the project. Outside of my project role, I’m part of CapcoConnect, a group that looks to find innovative FinTech firms and then present them to both the Capco Community and our clients. I haven’t had much exposure to this area in the past, so I’m learning a lot about the start-up community and the creative technologies that are out there.
Passion, progress, learning. I love learning new things and figuring out how everything fits together. That is the fun thing about consulting; you are placed into a project where you quickly need to learn what your role is, how to contribute to the team, and how the client works. There is constantly something new to learn and a new problem to solve, which I find exciting.
The same things that drive me in work also drive me in life. I constantly need to feel productive and that I’ve accomplished something.
It is like Cheers, where everybody knows your name. While everyone may not literally know my name, they take the time to stop, introduce themselves, and find out more about you. It is a very supportive community both personally and professionally.
