In today’s episode I speak with Avishen Thondrayen.  Avishen is a Strategy Associate at one of the Big 4 professional services firms based in London. Before entering the working world, Avishen graduated from the LSE with a degree in Economics. After university he enjoyed two gap years where he not only travelled across Asia but also enjoyed short stints in Fast Moving Consumer Goods at Kraft Heinz and Mergers & Acquisitions at Credit Suisse.

In this episode we discuss why first generation and less privileged students do not participate in extracurricular activities, the challenges Avishen faced when trying to obtain a graduate job and tips on how you can progress your career as a management consultant, which to be honest, can be applied to any profession so be sure to tune into those!
