WHAT YOU’LL DO DAY-TO-DAY:
- As a Generalist, you will be matched with a particular department at the firm. While your specific responsibilities will depend on your placement, you will tackle exciting business problems by performing research and conducting rigorous analysis using both quantitative and qualitative methods.

- Successful generalists are effective communicators and critical thinkers who take a highly analytical approach to solving problems.
- Generalists excel at managing multiple projects and are motivated by a strong desire to learn and an interest in taking on new challenges.
- In keeping with our firm’s culture, we’re more interested in talent, curiosity, and motivation than we are in any particular skill or experience.
