Name: Liam Schillling

Title: Summer Analyst

Year: 2016

Education: B.A. in Business Administration, University of Michigan Ross School of Business

Why were you initially drawn to the Summer Analyst Program at T&Co?

"I chose T&Co due to executive exposure and the people I met. I knew that joining a smaller firm would require me to step up to the plate of bigger problems when compared to my peers at other firms. This, paired with the awesome people at the firm, really sold me on joining T&Co."

How would you describe your work as a Summer Analyst at T&Co?

"My summer work experience was exactly how I had pictured it. I was immediately in meetings with business group leaders and executives of the client. Within my first week I was given a task that required extensive research and analysis on my part. My synthesis was ultimately included in our final recommendation and accepted by the client. Every step of the way I was given support by the entire firm, irrespective of level at the firm or involvement with the project I was staffed on."

What was a particularly memorable moment from your Summer Analyst experience? 

"My most memorable moment of the summer was the Friday happy hours & social events throughout the week. It’s great to see the people you work with outside of a work setting and to be able to get to know them in an entirely different environment."

What are you passionate about outside of work?

"Outside of work, I love opportunities to teach others something I have learned. Whether that’s teaching English to recent immigrants, or serving as a TA for a recent course I took, I love the challenge teaching gives me." 

What advice would you give to prospective candidates for the Summer Analyst Program?

"Overall, I think the fit portion of the interview is the most important. Treacy & Company isn’t out to get you with the cases. Of course you need to be strong with your case prep, but overall it’s most important to be an interesting person that the interviewer wants to talk to and get to know more about. So, be honest and make all your interests, whether relevant to business or not, very clear on your resume, cover letter, and during your interview. Good luck!"
