Before graduating from Northwestern University in 2019 with a B.A. in Cognitive Science and an M.S. in Computer Science, I began my career at Publicis Sapient (PS) as a summer intern in the Chicago office. From the start, I was impressed with the collaborative culture. Despite being a global company, it feels connected across offices and countries. This aspect of PS makes it very easy to get involved in the office and meet new people. Since the pandemic, we’ve had opportunities to attend virtual happy hours and town hall meetings. I was able to utilize these events to build new relationships with people I would have otherwise never met. Now that I’ve joined the company full-time in the Boston office, I’m a part of Boston’s Up and Up group, which brings together people who are in the early stages of their careers. It is great to be a part of an organization that is both welcoming and supportive throughout the transition from college to career; it allowed me to own my personal development while feeling supported.
