Cannon Design Consultant - Entry Level in Buffalo, New York
Are you a go-getter? Do you enjoy solving complex problems? Do you want to make an impact? Blue Cottage of CannonDesign has an exciting opportunity for an entry-level Consultant. We are looking for individuals who love numbers and data and obsess about different ways to approach a problem or gain insight into operational challenges using data. We want people who can run intricate models with ease for all types of common and uncommon information. Do you look at a problem and immediately think about how to provide solutions using the data at hand? Do you see trends in data and make connections that others do not automatically identify? If so, this is the perfect job for you! We need someone who can think critically; who understands both the content and the context of analytical models and can explain the "why" along with the "how." We do not want you to just run numbers; we want you to use your knowledge and models to illustrate everything we aren't thinking about because we are not as skilled as you in analytics.
