Why did you choose to pursue consulting and how did you get into it?
I like the freedom and flexibility in taking on dynamic projects as a consultant. I also enjoy being able to network with many people and gain experience with a variety of systems that are important in the pharmaceutical industry.
Initially, I wasn’t aware of what consulting was. I discovered it as an option during my job search four years ago and was instantly interested in the traveling aspect. After my first project, I came to the realization that I had made the right choice. I have found that each project I take on has its own set of challenges and my troubleshooting abilities grow with each completion.
Why did you choose to join Delta PM?
I chose Delta PM after networking with Delta employees while I was on various projects. They had nothing but positive things to say about the company and it was apparent that they were satisfied with their job and unaffected by the pressures that one could feel on challenging projects. It was indicative to me of the support system that the company and employees provide — something I have now had the privilege of experiencing first-hand.
How has your experience with Delta been fulfilling or different?
Working at Delta PM has been a great experience, as consulting has been the catalyst to my personal and professional development. Growing up as an introvert, I never imagined I would end up enjoying the prospect of meeting new people and working in different settings. I have had the privilege of working with bright minds and cutting edge equipment, and contributing to the pharmaceutical industry. There’s always more to learn, which I greatly enjoy.
It’s also very apparent that there’s a lot of effort invested in developing a company culture at Delta that’s inclusive of us in the LA area. There are no reservations in reaching out to anyone and receiving technical advice. Working with great people encourages me to network for future project opportunities. All of these elements have empowered me to develop and seek growth in my career.
How would you characterize your team?
I have an awesome team! Everyone has been very welcoming, supportive, and open to addressing any questions. It’s been great working with like-minded, driven people who are willing to put in quality effort to get projects completed.
Any other Consulting best practices, tips, or career advice?
Anyone interested in consulting can be successful by being open to challenges, a new work environment, and being alone or in a group to complete a project. Project deadlines, people, and challenges vary and it’s up to the consultant to make the best assessment of the situation and move forward.
