Consulting’s “Women Leaders” Recipient Jessica Jarvis Shares Practical Pointers for Following Your Passion

Posted by ZS on Nov 1, 2018 10:03:14 AM

As a senior-year chemical engineering and biology major in undergrad, Los Angeles-based Principal Jessica Jarvis imagined herself working at a pharmaceutical company. Until she stumbled upon ZS’s booth at a career fair, that is.

“I had never considered consulting but suddenly, I had this vision of myself in a lab day in and day out,” Jess said. “As someone who thrives on interaction, I realized it just wasn’t me.”

So she started researching ZS, and made a number of connections. “I liked that I’d still be able to apply my education in the healthcare field, but what really sold me was the people. Everyone I met was so dynamic.”

Now, 17 years later, Jess has one of the most people-centric roles there is at ZS—one that centers on cultivating strong, meaningful relationships: client service lead.

Fourteen years ago, Principal Akihiro—known as Aki to his family and friends—was interviewing for his very first job. As chance would have it, ZS was also in the early stages of launching its Tokyo office. The rest is history.

Early in his career, Aki began working on sales analytics projects, eventually expanding his scope to include market research, forecasting and incentive compensation operations. He worked with a variety of companies across different geographies, focusing primarily on Japanese pharmaceutical clients.

Aki was elected principal last month, and he’s looking forward to the next phase of his ZS journey as we begin growing our presence in other parts of Japan, including Osaka.
