Associate Consultant, Information Management

Burlington, MA

What is your role at Collaborative and what do you enjoy most about it? 
I am an Associate Consultant at Collaborative Consulting.  This encompasses many roles, depending on the project I am currently in.  So far, I have had the opportunity to learn new technologies, assist with program management, perform system tests, and much more.  Having recently graduated from college, my favorite part of this job is playing different roles on projects and getting a good sense of what’s out there.

What makes you stay with the Collaborative team? 
The people at Collaborative Consulting are really exceptional.  I have only worked with highly talented people here and everyone is constantly willing to help out.  The company is looking out for my best interests and is personally invested in my future, and it’s great to work at a place like that.

What knowledge and skills have you gained at Collaborative? 
During the 9 weeks of training we received as part of the Associate Training Program, I learned a ton of new technologies and tools.  I have had the opportunity to use some of them in the field, and will probably get to use more as I go forward.  From being in the field, on projects, I have learned a great deal on what it really means to be a consultant, how to deal with clients and the importance of effective communication.

What are your interests outside of work? 
I work with a nonprofit called Engineers Without Borders.  I am mostly involved with program management and member retention in the Boston professionals chapter.  It’s a really rewarding experience and the two projects directly affect the lives of thousands of people in rural Honduras and Tanzania.

What advice would you give to potential new recruits? Or what is the Collaborative Career Advantage? 
Collaborative Consulting is a great place to start your career.  They do a variety of work and you have the opportunity to take advantage of that.  You can specialize and further develop skills you already have, or you can do something different and learn something new.  They are willing to help you grow and cater to your career-wants; this is something unique to Collaborative.

What has been your most memorable experience at Collaborative. 
Definitely spending a summer in Wausau, WI!  Wausau comes alive during the summer; there is always some festival or competition or event going on.  Particularly if you enjoy the outdoors, it’s a great place to spend some time.  I enjoyed the training, getting to know the Wisconsin crew, and bonding with my fellow ATP-ers!
