American Express offered Summers a job a few days before she finished her internship with the company, in the summer after junior year. But she had until November to accept the offer. Around that time, Summers arrived at a different choice: to take what she called her “dream job” as a management consultant with Accenture, one of the world’s largest consulting firms.
What’s it like to search for a job as a Carroll School student? Summers has a quick response. “There’s an enormous amount of support that they give you here. Whether it’s letting you take some time off of class to go on an interview, or talking with a professor who has experience in the field, it’s great,” she points out. “The mentorship is part of the great support system here. And I just hope I can carry that into my career and do as much for others as everyone did for me here.”
