Forecasting leader proves ZS careers defy prediction

Posted by ZS on May 19, 2017 4:27:20 PM

“I’m a home-grown ZSer,” says Judith. “I started right out of Cal [UC Berkeley] with my industrial engineering and operations research degree and have been here ever since.”

It’s not a situation she would have predicted.

Raised in Northern California, Judith was referred to ZS by a Berkeley classmate who worked for the firm. “I was happy to get in the door, and I was impressed with the people I met during the interview process,” she recalled. “I thought it was a great company, but I was naïve about the true extent of the opportunities available here.”

Judith admits that she started at ZS thinking consulting was a job she would keep for a few years until she figured out “what she wanted to do when she grew up.” That was over 16 years ago. “I didn't know then that it was the perfect place for me to build my career,” she said.
