事业： Consulting - Data Analytics, Ernst & Young
I work as a data analytics consultant at Ernst & Young. In general, I am brought in on projects to assist in analyzing big data to determine real-world applicability to our clients. We do this mainly by using tools such as Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, and Tableau (to name a few) to load, store, and transform data into something meaningful. A few specific projects I have dealt with concern identifying duplicate payments made by the client, creating models to determine likeliness of committing fraud, and creating a database in Microsoft Access to aid in a client's billing process.
Ernst & Young is such a big company that there is quite a bit of variety in my line of work. There are employees who have worked there for their entire careers and say that they always have something new and exciting to work on and learn from. So far, everything I have done has been new, and consequently, I haven't stopped learning after graduating from Albion. Being able to have variety and a continued education (in any sense) in my line of work was the two things I valued most in a job coming out of college, and Ernst & Young provides both for me.
Through my connections with Gerstacker and the Econ Department, I was able to obtain, and excel at, internships with Humanergy (a management consulting company in Marshall, Mich.) and Ernst & Young.
