Lindsey Musselman, Manager, Deloitte Consulting LLP
I earned my B.A. in Economics and Sociology from Dartmouth College. Prior to joining Deloitte, I was a Project Manager for a financial services company where I was responsible for leading a cross-functional team in executing large-scale projects for institutional clients with assets under management of at least $500 million. I was responsible for client management, project planning, risk mitigation, and issue resolution. I joined Deloitte as a Senior Consultant after getting my MBA and was excited to return after having spent the previous summer as a Summer Associate. While in consulting, I primarily focused on providing strategic change and communication services to clients in the Life Sciences sector. I also had the opportunity to further explore a long-time interest in learning and talent development. Having realized my passion for leadership development, I was thrilled to join Deloitte's Leadership Development & Succession team in April 2011.
Why I participated
I decided to participate in the case competition because I thought that it was a great way to stay connected to Deloitte following my summer internship. It also gave me the opportunity to continue developing a brand for human capital consulting at Kenan-Flagler. Not many of my classmates at the University of North Carolina knew about human capital consulting. Through our team of first- and second-year students, our classmates became more aware of this type of consulting.
Impact on my career
During the competition, I met a number of leaders from the northeast region. Most of the practitioners that I had met up until that point had primarily been from the southeast. Being able to meet people from the region that I was going to be joining helped me to begin building connections that I have depended on countless times since joining Deloitte.
Advice to prospective participants
If you are someone who is interested in solving business issues with people-related solutions then this case competition is a fantastic opportunity. This is especially true for students coming from schools that don't have a strong human capital focus to their curriculum.
