Foster Freshman Consulting: Boba Up

Foster Consulting Program: Ruobing’s Experience

I am truly grateful for this opportunity to work as a student consultant in the Foster Consulting Program.

During the journey, I’ve gained valuable experience to communicate with clients, analyze problem critically, conduct research and work as team to provide recommendations for the clients. I am so happy I was able to utilize my skills to help the local minority business grow, especially under pandemic time.

In the past six weeks, the insightful feedback and support from our PM and professional advisors has guided the team through a few challenging stages and I could always learn about new things through our conversation.

This first consulting experience has largely developed my soft skills and sharpen the business acumen in a real-world business environment. It has also inspired me to explore further as a consulting professional and contribute more to our community.
