Soukaina YOUSFI (class of 2011), 23 years old, Product Integration Consultant at NEXTON CONSULTING

I am a graduate of ESIGELEC, generalist school, finance option, and work in the Banking-Finance-Insurance department of an IT and NICT consulting firm. As a consultant, I am able to combine technical knowledge - IT in my case - with another field of expertise (finance in my case). The qualities required of a consultant are a sense of service, autonomy and adaptability, as we have to work with various clients during our assignments. And travel means an international outlook, so ideally you should have a good command of foreign languages.
