Consulting interested me because of the wide variety of projects that you get to be involved in. I looked at a few different consultancies and chose Bain because I had a better rapport with the people. I felt the type of work they did in the Australia office was more interesting than some of their competitors. After a period of time in the Sydney office, I went to Sloan Business School to get my MBA and master's in engineering from MIT. Then I returned to Bain's Boston office after I graduated.
I've mostly been focused on private equity due diligence—intense three-week projects where we gain a thorough understanding of companies and industries that private equity firms are looking to invest in. It's really interesting work because you get to learn about new industries at a high level of detail in a very short period of time.
