“Having worked as a consultant before coming to UNC Kenan-Flagler, I originally thought consulting was the best option for me. However, I became more interested in marketing along the way. The Career & Leadership Coaches worked tirelessly to help me prepare for both consulting and marketing interviews. As a result, I landed a brand management internship and successfully transitioned into Product Management after graduation.”

Harsh Gupta Head of Global Payments & Risk, Udemy
