A brief introduction

Hey everyone,

I just discovered this forum and oh my it is such a gem - glad to be a part of it now!

So anyway, I'll briefly introduce myself and would be happy to get to know some of your stories as well.

I am 23 years old and I'm from Eastern Europe. I just finished my undergrad in the UK and worked a dead-end job for the last year since my graduation. This is when I decided to pursue a career in consulting. Long story short, last month I managed to land a consulting job in the energy trade risk management field and I am on my way to be staffed on projects with big energy companies in Western Europe. I hope to learn the ropes and eventually transfer my skills to Big4 (not really fierce competition in Eastern Europe so should be relatively easy).
Right now, I have a bit of a downtime and I was wondering if you could give me some pointers as to what are some valuable qualifications or certifications to have on my resume ... excel, ppt, etc.

Thanks for reading and I am excited to be here!
