to Julie M. Senior Manager, Amaris

I will soon graduate from a Biomedical Engineering PhD program at McGill, I have also a background in Electrical/Electronics Engineering. I'm wondering what my chances are to be considered for a job at a consulting firm like Amaris. Thanks for your help.
Senior Manager, Amaris

Hello Alejandro,
Thank you for your question. Having a PhD is always an interesting asset. There are then two questions to consider:
1. What kind of role are you looking for? (Including the types of projects and responsibilities)
This question is essential to see if your ambitions fit with the types of role we can offer at Amaris and what are the opportunities that we have with our customers.

2. The second question is linked to the projects that are available with the customers. This will be known by the managers in the country that you are applying.

To conclude, my best advice would be to attend the first interview, to ask a lot of questions about the opportunities that could fit your profile and to also be clear about the type of role you are looking for. Having a PhD can be an asset and it will need to be aligned with the type of consulting projects we offer.

hope it helps,
