To the CCTMC Community,

Welcome to our Fall 2021 quarterly publication. The third quarter for our CCTMC community was busy for all of us. Agency ramped up projects with many exciting engagements for our members to make an impact on our business community. Education had several exciting workshops that highlighted transferable skills for students to utilize in future management consulting careers. Notably, we had Samir Kapur, managing director and partner of the BCG Houston office come speak to our members about his personal experiences in consulting. 

In this issue of the CCTMC we have an exciting interview with a consultant at ZS to give you a personal take on the firm. Curious about life after management consulting? In our new column, we interview Manu and how he transformed his career after working at McKinsey. Finally, catch up on the latest activities of CCTMC and hear directly from each VP in our Division Outlook. 

As always, we hope that the information provided here is valuable and helps you as you explore the consulting career.
