If you take on a challenge and resiliently keep working on it, you can do anything.
Prior to joining BCG, I studied law at the University of Helsinki. I ended up here almost by accident. I was finishing up my studies in law school, when I suddenly realized I wanted to try out something different. And it's really been a ride so far!
Since joining, I have had the opportunity to work with interesting clients across industries, from technology to fashion, and teamed up with wonderful people in different BCG offices. I've made friends I hope to keep for a lifetime. What more could I ask for?
Elisa holds a law degree from the University of Helsinki.
Q: What did you learn in your first year on the job?
A: I think the first year at BCG is about finding your professional confidence—realizing that if you take on a challenge and resiliently keep working on it, you can do anything.
Q: What are some of your goals, and how does working at BCG support them?
A: Even though I find more and more pleasure in solving the business problems our clients face, I’m fond of rules and regulations. I'm still a lawyer by heart. One day, after BCG, I wish to do something in which I can combine my business understanding with my theoretical knowledge in law.
Q: What inspires you about BCG?
A: All my amazing colleagues! Every day I am inspired by the people around me, what they've done, and how they perceive the world around us. Also the endless possibilities that BCG has to offer are most inspiring.
