Thank you to INFORMS Member, Nitin Agrawal, for contributing this post.
On February 15, UIC INFORMS hosted a Deloitte Information Session with the Human Capital group of Deloitte. We had the pleasure to have Faisal Farooqui representing Deloitte, an alum of the UIC Liautaud Masters in Management Information Systems program. He is currently working as Principal Workday Consultant in Deloitte’s Chicago office.
The event started with Faisal taking center stage, explaining the basics with a video showcasing Deloitte’s work culture, facilities and various opportunities for employees. In the second half of session, Faisal discussed specifics about the Human Capital group of Deloitte. He explained how Deloitte is the marketplace leader in HR transformation and is recognized for its ability to integrate the full complement of its management and IT consulting services. He presented in detail the specifics of Workday practice in Deloitte and explained how this department delivers value across various industries. He also encouraged students to ask questions and promptly responded to all of them. He touched upon various topics like cloud, ERP, and assisted students with their understanding of real time implementation at Deloitte.
Overall, the session was quite informative for all the students who attended the session. After the session, students had time for informal discussion with Faisal, where he also shared some career advice. He also discussed summer internships and full time opportunities in his group at Deloitte. UIC INFORMS would like to thank Faisal Farooqui for sharing his experience with us, as well as thank everyone who was in attendance. We look forward to seeing you at future INFORMS events!
