Tell me about your career journey at Capgemini.

I started my journey within the Solution Design Center at Capgemini as a functional analyst in the SAP practice with a focus on cloud and manufacturing. I spent my time capturing business requirements, translating them into technical terms, and then changed over to the project-management side of things, where I bridge the gap between our technical and functional teams globally, as well as with leadership and clients. This is my first job after graduating from college.

Why did you choose Capgemini to start your career journey?

I chose Capgemini because of the people. My first impression was of the phenomenal interviewer who I’m still friends with today. We shared a lot of similar interests, and I was able to be real and genuine during my interview. One piece of advice I got during my time at college was that you have to find a place where you can relate well to the people. In talking to the interviewer, I was able to share some of my concerns going into my first real-world job, and he told me what it was really like. One of the things he said that stuck with me is that “It doesn’t matter whether or not you choose our company, what matters to me is what makes you happy.”

How has Capgemini supported you through your career journey so far?

They listen to me, they care for me, and they empathize with me. But most importantly, they enable me with freedom to do the things I want to do. If I am interested in a topic that’s not in my job scope, they allow me to go chase after it, and to create something I can call my own.

Tell us about how you launched the People’s Pitch Competition.

The People’s Pitch Competition started when I noticed that there were a lot of people my age leaving the company. I created a business case that offered insight into what is important to Millennials and Gen Zs. I took it to the company leaders, and they wanted to learn more about my ideas. We considered various initiatives we could create to give people an opportunity to make an impact and be heard, regardless of their business unit, geographic location, and age. What we came up with was a pitch competition where people are able to share their ideas and voice their solutions or what they want to get out of their own careers at Capgemini.

Tell us about your work with Capgemini’s employee resource groups (ERGs).

I am the national lead for Global Organization for Leadership and Diversity (GOLD) and events lead for the Movement Innovation Council (MIC). As the national lead for GOLD, I host workshops to share my experiences about my leadership journey and help develop the next generation of leaders. For MIC, I wanted to do something more innovative, more solution-oriented to bridge the gap between human energy and the technological wonders and marvels we have right now.

How is Capgemini helping you get the future you want?

Capgemini allows me to take charge of my own future. They cater to my experiences and push me to achieve what I can. If I want to do something, the people here give me the chance or point me toward the right direction and give me the most important thing anyone can earn, trust. Capgemini gives me the people, opportunities, and environment to excel further than I could on my own.
