Danielle Pensack

Senior Consultant, IX ASEAN Bluemix Champion
IBM Singapore

I love the responsibility I get in IBM's Consulting by Degrees program! Typically when you first join a company fresh out of university, you might expect to face severe limitations in your job role, such as having very limited exposure to clients, being stuck in an administrative position, or even being told to deliver coffee. But I've experienced the complete opposite in IBM! I had the opportunity to present my work to CIOs and CEOs of major companies. I love that the program has no boundaries!

Janice Koh

I've grown professionally and personally through exploring mobile and analytics projects in an Agile way, and writing codes to transform client experiences. As an IBMer, I've also gained vast learning opportunities through overseas training and international collaboration with colleagues from all over the world. The Consulting by Degrees Program provides a truly vibrant experience!

Radhika Vyas

Senior Consultant (Interactive Experience)
IBM Singapore

Sitting alongside pilots from a leading aviation company and brainstorming ways to help them digitally transform their daily routines was one of the most empowering projects that I did at IBM. The Consulting by Degrees Program exposed me to different industries, including banking, mining and telecommunications where I was a part of transforming the way they work.

I love the level of professionalism amongst my peers, seniors and partners! Everyone takes personal ownership for their work, and do their best to ensure excellence in their projects. I’ve also gained lots of hands-on experience and exposure from working on challenging projects. So glad to have joined the Consulting by Degrees program as it has provided me with the skills and knowledge to excel at the workplace!

Creating and executing the consulting strategy along with my ASEAN managing partner was one of the coolest things I’ve done in the Consulting by Degrees program. At IBM, you get to work closely with leaders to make the world work better!
