Laura Hewitt
Consultant

"I chose Financial consulting and I'm happy with that choice. I didn't want to be in Investment Banking or Advertising."

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

I chose Financial consulting and I'm happy with that choice. I didn't want to be in Investment Banking or Advertising. I wanted to stay in Boston and decided consulting would be a good place to start. There are many paths within consulting. I used my finance background to get into financial consulting. The firm I work for does financial consulting for non profit, colleges, schools, museums.

How did you get your big breaks?

Recruited at Dartmouth 1st round. 2nd round at site. I had some non-profit experince because I ran a literacy program at Dartmouth. I think that gave me a competitive edge.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Keep an open-mind, lots of opportunities for graduates with finance backgrounds, not just Investment Banking. Talk to many people see what they have to say about their careers.

What have you learned from your experience?

Make time for yourself and your family along with work. Lower your pressure level. This is often a last job for people. Many came here form Investment Banking or management consulting so I get to be around people who have already established their priorities and work styles. I'm learning from their examples.

What most excites you about your job right now?

I enjoy the work. On-going relationship with clients is the best part. You see the results. Worst part is that it's not as much client contact as ideally I would like.

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

I see myself going back to school for my MBA and then I'd like to go into marketing or brand management in the future.
