Can you explain a bit about your journey into BizOps?

In my junior year of university, I got an internship with Bain and Company, which was my first exposure to the real working world, so to speak. I really enjoyed my time at Bain, they have a great internship programme, so I returned after school to start as an Associate Consultant. I was at Bain for two years and had the most classic experience in management consulting.

About a year and a half in, I realised that I liked the skill set and the analytical and strategy side of consulting, but I didn’t necessarily like consulting as an industry. So for me, I found there’s a lot of pain around working as a consultant, you’re working pretty long hours,
