Preparing for Day 1 as an Analyst

Preparing for Day 1 as an Analyst
Analysts at Stern Value Management are given responsibility immediately upon their start date. While they don’t present to clients on Day 1, they are expected to contribute to client projects, marketing efforts, and research initiatives within the first weeks. Once they feel comfortable having learned the ropes, they are expected to take ownership of key tasks.

One of the great aspects of working at SVM is the informal training (in fact, we’re ranked by Vault as a Top 25 consulting firm for informal training). We value hands-on learning and self-study programs that allow analysts to develop quickly. Most of the learning is done on the job with the guidance of teammates. In this article, we outline ways you can prepare prior to Day 1 so that you can hit the ground running once you start at SVM and start your journey to become an expert in our value management philosophy.

An Interview with Vanessa, Analyst (Value Management Consultant)

Here at Stern Value Management, we have long prided ourselves on our ability to offer our newest recruits industry opportunities not usually afforded to analysts in similar fields or firms. Our most junior consultants are thrown into the proverbial “deep end” as a means of offering maximum exposure and ensuring as much skill development in the first year as possible.

We are very proud of our hands-on approach when it comes to our training, as well as the work we do with our clients. For this reason we thought it was time to hear from one of our Analysts (Value Management Consultants), Vanessa Angel, who is currently working at our Latin American practice. Vanessa has been with Stern Value Management for over a year. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Master’s degree in Engineering.
