Jesse is currently an associate consultant with Bain & Company, working out of their Dallas office. After earning his undergrad degree at USC in neuroscience, he came to Texas get a better foundation of business education. “The contrast between my experience with USC and UT career services was night-and-day; as such, I’m a big proponent of the recruiting opportunities available to MPA students and a strong advocate that MPAs should leverage those resources early and whole-heartedly in order to realize their own professional aspirations."
His experience led to him reaching out to the MPA program to set up a few workshops to shed light on the topic of consulting recruiting for interested students. The main goals of the workshops are to educate MPAs on what consulting is and how consulting recruiting works, to provide guidance on what’s important for students to do when trying to land a job in consulting, and to introduce students to the case interview format and set them up with a network to practice on their own. These Saturday workshops were his way of giving back to a program that in his words “was the best one-year investment I could have made as a non-business undergrad hoping to make my way into the business world."
