I am looking for project/business analyst roles.

I decided to graduate a year early, double majored in Health Policy & Economics and Global history.

I don't regret that decision. Being at Vanderbilt wasn't the best experience, esp for an immigrant w/ low SES status.

While COVID impacted my plans for the two summers I had, I made the best use of the opportunities I came across. I know I am skilled, more than competent, but sometimes seeing so many rejections makes me question my abilities.


Would anyone who works in P&O at PwC like to chat? I came across a role that’s pretty much a dream job for me (I’ve worked in proj management hence my title, but my background is in business psych). Thanks in advance :)
