Some folks look at me and see a certain swagger, which in Texas is called "walking".

Why Bain?

Working in a high-powered but collaborative and meritocratic environment was something I looked for when making the decision about where to work. Bain is just that: a supportive team in a fast-paced industry working hard and delivering results. The people at Bain truly make the difference.

My passion

I chose Bain because of the variety of experiences it has to offer. I wanted to work in as many industries and functional areas as possible, before deciding where to focus. Bain's generalist model enables me to do just that.

Bain has also supported my extracurricular love of traveling. Last year, Bain sponsored me to work for a not-for-profit bicycle company in Zambia. This was a life-changing experience that Bain encouraged me to undertake. I'm hoping to take advantage of the many international opportunities Bain offers.

A final thought

When taking the next step in your career, be honest with yourself about what you are looking for. If you are choosing between firms/industries/other options make sure you ask the tough questions and get the honest answers.
