I'm going to keep doing this for a while, of that I'm sure!

In my job as Technology Consultant at Accenture, I rarely use the content of Electrical Engineering. But I still feel I created an indispensible fundament at the TU/e.

"The social skills, the way of thinking, the network you create: you definitely reap the benefits in you career. An internship abroad – I've spent six months in New Zealand – is important. The life experience you gather there is important for employers. I've only been working for a month and a half, but already know that the combination of technique and business is perfect for me. And the variety: as a consultant you see a lot of companies and organisations from the inside. I'm going to keep doing this for a while, of that I'm sure!"
