Students and Graduates

We offer a range of graduate opportunities across strategy, management consulting, and managed solutions.

What we look for

Work at Cartesian is varied and challenging, which is part of what motivates us. We don’t expect you to be a business expert or a tech guru. What we look for is intellectual rigor and diligence in the following key areas:

  • Problem Solving: Can you think analytically and break down complex problems into smaller, solvable pieces?
  • Research: Can you seek out the information needed to support the pieces of the problem that you’ve just broken down?
  • Communication: Can you build those pieces back up into a comprehensible picture that others can understand?
  • Teamwork: Can you work closely with colleagues and clients on small teams that demand big contributions from every team member?

All our practices require a degree from a competitive university. When applying, consider how your unique education and experience arm you to consult for top executives in the communications, technology, and digital media industries.
