Thomas de Jong

Associate Consultant Intern @ Simon Kucher

“Currently my days are filled with sports and/or travelling to the office early in the morning. Then we always have a day start with the project team to discuss progress, to dos, and goals for the day. The working days are very diverse in tasks. The current project I’m working on is very data heavy, hence I am often very busy cleaning data and making it workable. My working day generally ends between 18 and 19, but it differs sometimes based on the tasks at hand. In the evenings I’d generally try to divide my time between sports, meeting friends, and also getting some much needed rest and just watching a movie (or sports).”
