Rachid Macer

Student Director, CareerEdge and Think Tank Colleague Team

Rachid Macer

My name is Rachid Macer and I am currently a senior at Bentley majoring in Computer Information Systems. On campus, I have been involved in organizations ranging from CAB Concerts to Junior Class Cabinet and have enjoyed each one throughout the semesters.

This past summer, I interned at Fidelity Investments as a systems analyst, specifically in their Corporate Technology Group. Throughout the summer I worked on projects involving integrating Salesforce with applications, developing an application for crowdfunding special events, and much more. I was also able to network with many Bentley Alumni that have taken on leadership roles within the firm. The summer leading into my junior year I had the opportunity to intern at Bose as a CIS Field Services Intern. From all my experiences, I’ve learned much more than the in’s and out’s of a role but to have fun during my summer internships.

When I am not in the classroom or in the career services office, I enjoy playing basketball, flag football, and other Intramural sports. Being from New York, I was exposed to the Knicks and Giants, but after moving to Massachusetts, I felt it was more than necessary to convert to a Pats and Celtics fan.

As the Student Director of the CareerEdge and Think Tank teams, I have the great pleasure of knowing that the great work each team does each year is shown through Bentley’s remarkable reputation of being ranked #1 out of 4,000 universities, having 89% of graduates employed, as well as 9% of graduates attending grad school. Go Bentley!

Cultivating a Consultant | How Important is the Behavioral Interview in the Consulting Interview Process?

Cultivating a Consultant

Please enjoy the fifth video and associated commentary in our Cultivating a Consultant video series!

As mentioned in the video, the behavioral section of an interview accounts for 50% of the hiring decision.  The main reason why the behavioral interview is so important in consulting is that the work is very dynamic, requires lots of team work, and teams changes every time a project is over (every ~3 to 6 months).

There are four main factors that consulting firms take …
