Green dotters, what kind of majors/previous work experience does Deloitte Digital look for in hiring folks?

Lol so have a lot of other people DD2... Source: been in Deloitte digital for 5+ years.

Depends on what you want to do. Why don't you tell us your area of expertise first.

Depending on the experience you have, if you have a functional background from the operations experience you might be able to come across as a functional analyst/BA in some of our delivery projects implementing software products like hybris, Salesforce, Oracle, SharePoint etc - where having the business process background would work.

Usually the studio/design roles you need to have past experience so it might be hard to come across directly; but there are a lot of people who start in more functional roles and then move to a user interface/experience SME designing wireframes etc with our studios.

If you're at PwC, why haven't you looked into the digital experience work that they do there? You might be able to have an easier transition if you network internally and get the experience there rather than coming into DD completely cold with no experience or network.

If you want to apply for a studio role, you're going to need to show some serious aptitude and a strong understanding of the design process, as well as a couple of years experience. A General Assembly course would not cut it.
I would agree that you'd be more suited to a functional role.

Not true - EM in studio is expected to know deep design principles and have user experience analysis skills - it takes a lot to keep up. All the cool stuff does not just happen without experience

like

Yes @DD1, that's what I said. "Knowing" and "understanding" doesn't mean being able to execute each part yourself.

like

Yep; totally agree with D1

Second year associate in operations consulting, undergrad in business with a finance specialization. Don't have any direct exposure to design or advertising though I think I have the aptitude for it. It has just always been an area of interest that I haven't been able to explore, but I'd really like to.

Thanks DD1, that's really helpful! And exploring the experience center we have was in the plan, but I just got laid off. Have a few good leads in similar positions to what I do currently, but I'm tempted to use this opportunity to switch to something I feel more passionate about.

Fair enough. Id also suggest showing that you're serious about digital if you don't have the experience eg doing some sort of course, building a side project/portfolio - a lot of people are interested in digital because it looks fun and sexy; but don't have the understanding to be put in front of a client to talk about it

To be clear DD is crowded now Heat is diff org inside and it is very new with lot of promise

We have easiest interview process one can imagine now

Heat and the rest of DD are being kept VERY separate; if you want to work for heat you have to apply for Heat specifically

So sounds like my options are to either work as a BA and progress to studio roles, or continue in finance/ops and educate myself on design principles and build a portfolio on the side. And then look at design jobs in the future.

You'd have a better shot of joining the studios as an engagement manager than as a designer, tbh.

D1: That might actually work really well! My ultimate goal is to someday be in an area that works in between designers and business people. So an EM role might be a good one. I always just thought a Manager on an engagement like that would have to be from an intense design background themselves.

Not as important if you're not executing the work - you just need to understand it enough to manage it... A bit of vision helps as well, a la product management.

Also not many ppl enjoy studio life - our attrition is maximum over there ...

@DD2: That's flat out not true about the EM role. "User experience analysis" as you put it, is the role of the UX team.

The EM team needs to know how every activity the studio does works even if they're not explicitly doing it - how can you manage it if you don't understand it?

However, I’ve potentially got a JS job offer with Anomaly (London). Do I stay and grow slowly, or do I go and get the role I want quickly?
