“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 was able to spend my summer in Atlanta as a brand management intern.”
