US-NI Mentorship Program - Strategy Consultant, Teneo Holdings - New York

Where are you now?

I currently work as a Strategy Consultant for Teneo Holdings – a global advisory firm who provide consulting services to the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies. I am based in the firm’s global headquarters in Manhattan, New York

How did you get there?

In my final year of Queen’s, I was selected as a member of the prestigious Washington Ireland Program, Class of 2015. I had the privilege of interning in the Northern Ireland Bureau in Washington D.C. Following this, I was fortunate to be selected as a participant on the US-NI Mentorship Program, a graduate program that selects top performing graduates in Northern Ireland to undertake positions with leading US corporations. After my graduation in December 2015, I moved to New York in January 2016 to begin my current role at Teneo.

Making use of Careers, Employability and Skills

I would never be where I am today without the support and guidance offered by the student guidance centre at Queen’s. The coaching and mentorship I received from staff, the careers fair and workshops I attended as well as the Inspiring Leaders Program have given me the confidence to seize opportunities and expand my international footprint.

Advice for current Queen's students

Maximise all international opportunities! Having an international dimension to your CV, whether it’s work experience or study abroad opportunities - these experiences really set you apart in a competitive graduate marketplace. Attend career fairs and seek guidance from the brilliant staff in the student guidance centre. Drop by and arrange a chat, you never know where it could take you…
