Please tell us about your career path and how you found your way to Sense Corp.
After completing an internship at a large company, I realized I wanted to work for an organization that valued its people and fostered a collaborative, familial work environment. Sense Corp fit that mold perfectly.
What do you like about working for Sense Corp?
Consulting in general has been a good fit for me, as I like to learn about different industries and work with different teams of people. What is wonderful about Sense Corp, specifically, is that I am able to learn so much from my co-workers, lean on them when I need project support, and grow quickly because my managers trust me to take on new challenges.
I love the fact that Sense Corp places such high value on company culture. Within each of our home base cities, we have plenty of events going on in different areas such as social, wellness, and philanthropy. In addition to being active within each base city, the company hosts four meetings a year to bring everyone together. The company BBQ is a favorite, but it is tough to beat our annual trip to cool destinations such as Phoenix and Seattle!
What does this job entail?
Each project is different than the next, which is one of the reasons this job is so exciting. I personally have been involved in assessments, process improvement and best practices implementations, and technical implementations, among other things.
What skills make a person successful in this position?
In order to be a strong consultant, you must be flexible and adaptable. You have to be able to run with the information you are given, feel comfortable interacting with the client, and work well with others. Teamwork is paramount!

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Being 100% clear regarding what is expected will save you time in the long-run. Just be wise in who you ask, the timing of your question(s), and how you phrase it!
