A day in the life of an associate consultant
“First thing I do when I walk in is grab a cup of coffee and assess the ‘damage’ in my mail-inbox. I discuss and align with the Senior Business Analyst how to respond to the mails we received from Brazil and New York and discuss the action items for rest of the day. A brief look at my schedule shows a call with London at 10:00 a.m. to discuss the requirements and potential usage of the recordkeeping database-tool we build. I’m pretty confident they will be happy with the progress we made and the benefits they can generate from this tool. After the call I have a meeting with the IT-developer to tell him the outcome and next steps we agreed on. From there I have lunch with a couple of Synechron Business Consulting colleagues and as always we walk to the fish stall (nothing is better than a fish for lunch). At 15:30 I receive a message from New York that they want to know more about the additional requirements of a current issue. I schedule a call for 16:30 and I make sure that beforehand I align with compliance and my project manager on the latest status. The call itself is pretty straightforward, but a couple of sub-requirements are unclear and deserve further investigation. On my way to the office I talk to my project manager and discuss the priorities for next week. Time for a cold beer at the office with my colleagues to discuss the week and our plans for the weekend.” – Jort (Associate Consultant)
