The one-to-one sessions with Careers have really helped me realise what might be the ideal goal for me in terms of my professional career. Having enjoyed my work at KPMG India in the field of consulting and also expanding my knowledge via MSc Financial Technology at Imperial, I am definitely inclined towards Business Consulting roles at fintech based companies.
