CASE STUDY

Murat

Cyber Security Consultant at Deloitte

Murat was mentored in 2017. He is currently a Cyber Security Consultant at Deloitte.

“I found out where my passions within tech lie with the help of Career Accelerator, they were able to help me on my journey by introducing me to a variety of fields along with the opportunites for students. Being on Career Accelerator was a rewarding experience and was stimulating enough to learn more about yourself.

It allowed me to set my professional goals and plans so I can clearly define my next steps. This definitely helped me feel at ease especially when the workload piled on the following year. Career Accelerator has helped me organise my time which was convenient since I used the same skills in order to organise my A-level studies. I had to manage my newly created LinkedIn network, meetings with my mentor as well as the plethora of other opportunities Career Accelerator had to offer such as potential summer experience.”
