Job Description

Associate Consultant- Global Diversified Industries- St. Louis/Chicago You've invested a lot in your career. Now choose a company that invests in YOU! Are you looking for a company to help create your path to the future? Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) is that company! The Consulting Division of CSC is actively recruiting entry-level consultants for full time employment for our St. Louis/Chicago offices. We want to invest in fresh talent and in return offer exciting career opportunities. We have created a training program which will introduce our new consultants to the world and lifestyle of consulting!

CSC wants to invest in YOU. We are recruiting intelligent, outgoing, confident and skilled individuals who have recently earned a degree in Business or other analytical discipline. We are also interested in candidates who have a degree in Computer Science if they also have a strong business sense and professional presence. In this role, you have the responsibility for supporting the delivery of technical and business solutions within a project setting. You will develop foundation-level skill sets in business process analysis, workshop techniques, leveraging data and data analytics for business solutions, and project documentation. Key skills for the successful candidate are strong analytical skills, excellent communication skills, strong attention to detail, ability to work well in a team and to excel with independent work activity. Advanced skills with MS Excel and MS Powerpoint will set bright candidates apart as stand out options.

From Consulting Associate, you may advance to a Business Analyst or Consultant. You continue to gain experience in workshop facilitation and business process design while developing skills in increasingly complex environments. You will be responsible for developing high-quality work products for our clients. In addition, you assume responsibility for testing client solution from a business perspective to verify that the requirements are incorporated in the design and the solution meets client expectations.

The Company: Computer Sciences Corporation is one of the world's leading information technology services providers, helping organizations achieve business results through the effective use of technology. Since its formation in 1959, CSC has earned a customer-centric reputation for developing and managing solutions specifically tailored to each client's needs. No other company offers the same range of professional services and global reach as CSC does in areas such as business and technology strategies, management consulting, information systems consulting and integration, application software, and IT and business process outsourcing.

CSC is a leading provider of management and information technology services to commercial and government markets in over 80 countries. Our consulting portfolio spans the full life cycle -- from strategy and business process design to technology services, systems integration, application outsourcing and hosting. Our clients benefit from the breadth and depth of our global expertise, but more importantly, CSC goes to market using a team of local experts, creating a relaxed, professional-casual atmosphere, while maintaining a family and people-oriented culture.

Are we right for you? CSC offers a variety of challenging opportunities that will draw on your talents while enabling you to grow your intellectual capital in a supportive environment. Learning experiences are offered as a blend of relevant work assignments, training, tools, mentoring and other growth opportunities. We offer many avenues to mastering your chosen profession, while giving you everyday exposure to brilliance in business, technology and people. As one employee puts it, 'you have the freedom to explore different technologies, the mobility to move from one role to another (or one country to another), and the possibilities of learning from 90,000 colleagues worldwide -- without changing employer or losing benefits.'

Career Advancement: Your career belongs to you. At CSC, we recognize that you are in control of identifying and achieving your career goals. CSC enables you to take the lead through our formal development planning process. We will help you create a plan for enhancing your skills and experience by providing information, tools, tuition reimbursement and people that will support your career planning efforts. We have identified over 60 standard roles that exist across CSC Consulting, as well as the corresponding skills needed to succeed in those roles. You can use this information to identify your next job or an entire career path anywhere in the world. A career at CSC can be as targeted or eclectic as you are.

Expectation for Travel: For the Consulting Division of CSC, all roles require a commitment to 100% travel. This doesn't mean that consultants will always be traveling for assignments, but new consultants joining the CSC team need to understand that they could be assigned to a travel role. The staffing process focuses on assigning people to local roles as a first priority; however, if consultants are available and have the right skills for an assignment for another CSC office across the United States, they may be staffed into that travel assignment. When this happens, they travel to the project location at the start of the week and return at the end of the work week and are home on the weekends.

Top 5 Reasons to Join CSC:
1. Tremendous opportunities for growth and learning; competitive compensation/benefits
2. Supportive management team that rewards initiative
3. Structured career path promoting rapid career advancement
4. Congenial, collaborative culture; the opportunity to work with/learn from a diverse, highly experienced team of professionals
5. Opportunities to work across a variety of industries and functional areas and contribute broadly to projects
