At Cupole, we’re a collective of great minds and big hearts. But instead of keeping that for ourselves, we want to give you a chance to read some more about our people and what they have to say about themselves and Cupole.
Let’s get to know a Cupolean!
Hi Greta, what’s up?
Nothing is ever up when I’m asked that question – but soon I’m sure I’ll be busy with something interesting!
You’ve just started your first ‘real’ job as a management consultant – what are your impressions so far?
So far, so good!
You’re part of our post-graduate-program Cupole Academy, would you care to describe the advantages of being part of a program and not just being shipped into a project your first day?
Being a part of the Cupole Academy has been a great experience due to several reasons. Firstly, we have been thoroughly introduced to Cupole and everyone has made us feel like a part of the company from day one. Secondly, the six of us that have taken part in Cupole Academy have not only become a good team in terms of solving problems together but we have also become good friends. Thirdly, it feels beneficial to get introduced to the ways of working and the tools and programs used in project delivery in a pedagogical way. And lastly, it has been FUN.
Why did you take an interest in Cupole in the first place?
One of Cupole’s beliefs is “Great minds. Big hearts” and I felt that belief was very genuine – not only cool buzzwords. That’s what hooked me and also what roped me in!
Last year, what was going through your mind when you were applying to join us (and other firms)? What was your strategy and how did you feel during the whole recruitment process?
I applied and landed an internship at Cupole in 2018. The whole recruitment process made me more and more positive about the company and that feeling kept on growing during my time as an intern. I didn’t only feel good going to work, but I was also challenged, and I think I have never learned so much so fast (super cliché but it’s true). At the end of the internship, when I got the offer to come back as a full-time consultant, I was happy. Here I am and still happy, still challenged!
Ok, now let’s get to know you a little bit better in person. We’ve made a take on the Proust-questionnaire* to get to the core of who you really are (it’s really not that intense, have fun with it):
1. What is your take on success?
“No pain, no champagne” – success will come to those who go and get it. And of course, you might need some support from nice people around you.
2. What living person inspires you on a regular basis?
Most people inspire me in some way, everyone has something extraordinary to bring to the table!
3. What word do you overuse?
Nice in English, everything is nice (look four lines above for proof). In Swedish it’s MYSIGT.
4. You have 8 weeks of holidays; how do you spend it?
Preferably 4 weeks of skiing at the beginning of March and 4 weeks in the south of Sweden in July/August.
5. What is your most commonly used emoji?
6. If I say ‘plz fx’, how do you respond?
7. Do you have a motto, or do you play the lotto?
Question 1 will give you your answer!
8. Continue the phrase: = VLOOKUP(
No thank ya’!
9. How would you summarize the Cupole Culture in one sentence?
I’ll do it in 3 words instead, ok? Ambitious, genuine, fun!
Thanks Greta for taking the time to let us know a bit more about yourself! For our readers; Stay tuned for more from our Cupoleans!
*In case you haven’t heard about the Proust Questionnaire before; it has its origins in a parlor game popularized (though not devised) by Marcel Proust, the French essayist and novelist, who believed that, in answering these questions, an individual reveals his or her true nature.
