What’s great about the job?
Carpedia offers the opportunity to work with teams of talented individuals, across diverse industries all over North America and Europe. Our 100% travel requirement, although occasionally wearing, gives you the ability to experience diverse cultures and work in unique places. Those who are committed to driving results will have opportunities for rapid career advancement.
Working at Carpedia is an incredible learning experience.
At a relatively young age you get to experience a broad diversity of industries, functional areas, and people. You get to see how many different types of businesses operate. How they physically transform raw materials into products or how they provide unique services. You get a front row seat to watching how a plane is put together or the hive of activity that goes on under the lobby floors of a five star hotel. You can be working shoulder-to-shoulder with the company President in the morning and a front-line worker in the afternoon. You learn how the two ends of the organization spectrum are similar and how they are different and how they can be equally enriching experiences. For pure variety and interest it is hard to find a more appealing job.
Different people, different cultures.
One of the other fascinating experiences Carpedia provides is the variety of people and cultures with whom we interact. There are obvious cultural leaps when we work in Europe and Asia, but there are also diverse characters and cultures around North America. Visiting New York, Chicago, Miami or Vancouver is very different than actually working there day-to-day. Our clients have different interests, different hobbies, different life-styles which all helps to grow your personal understanding of what motivates people, which is critical for the success of our projects.
Rapid career progression
Another aspect of the Carpedia experience that attracts talented individuals is the ability to rapidly advance upwards in the company. Smart high-performers are only held back by their own ability to learn, absorb and apply different aspects of what we do. No corporate job can match the speed at which you can advance and interact with senior level executives.
Real measurable improvement
At Carpedia we don’t speculate what could happen if clients take our advice and leave the implementation to them. We work directly with all levels of management to make sure the changes work and that they stick. This means we get to see the tangible benefits of our work while we are with our clients. This is more difficult than just “advising” but it is also immensely more rewarding and fulfilling. It gets dull just creating fancy reports, it’s much more interesting to get your hands dirty alongside your clients and make something better than it was.
The work hard, play hard culture
Another aspect of Carpedia that shouldn’t be overlooked is the culture of the company itself. We are all very hard workers and you will find that every minute of every day is important. You will never be bored. This appeals to ambitious and energetic individuals who have a drive to accomplish things. Most of our employees were successful at school and in sports or some other competitive landscape. We carry that same inner drive to after hours as well. Teams will seek out interesting venues, games, restaurants, or events even after logging intense work days. Some of our people continue high-level competitive activities on weekends. Many of us initially joined the consulting industry as a stepping-stone towards finding the “ultimate job.” A number of us inadvertently found it at Carpedia.
