    Interviewing advice:

    Devin McKinney

    Associate Consultant
    BA in English, Pre-med;
    Bowdoin College

    My best advice for a case interview would be to prep with a friend/classmate. Learning how a case works is rather simple; the most difficult piece is communicating your learnings/insights out loud. Get comfortable with imperfections and mistakes! Also, don’t neglect prep for the behavioral questions; make sure you have a few stories ready to showcase your skills in a team, addressing challenges, etc.

    Lucas Monserrat

    Associate Consultant
    BA in Economics and Mathematics;
    Bowdoin College

    Practice, practice, practice. Prior to any case or behavioral interview, make sure that you have gone through numerous live mock interviews. Reading case prep books and practicing cases on your own, can only get you so far. Going through mock cases and behavioral interviews live will help you build the confidence you will need to speak and think critically while under the pressure of a real interview.

Looking back on my time as an intern:

What stood out to me the most about the company as an intern, and ultimately drove me to come back as a full-time employee, was the balance of a very steep learning curve with a culture of teaching and mentorship. From day one I was treated as a full-time team member, and I was given responsibilities that were both challenging and extremely rewarding, as I felt that I was truly contributing to each project. At the same time, the company’s investment in their people was (and continues to be) so evident, both in terms of the time and energy spent on training and teaching, as well as the focus on longer-term professional development through coaching. To me, this focus on providing both challenge and support to each employee is what makes Trinity’s culture stand out in the industry.

Julia Pikus started as an intern at CB Partners (a Trinity acquisition), and is now a member of Trinity’s leadership team.

What it has been like to progress from entry level to a leadership roles at Trinity?

It has been such a fun journey starting at Trinity as an associate and moving through each level on my way to Partner.  This provides me a unique vantage point where I truly understand the role and experience of each team member. I have progressed in my career at Trinity, I’ve had the opportunity to work on such a wide range of therapeutic areas and project types. Despite the hundreds of cases I have worked on, I am continuously learning, developing new skills, and working with new people.

My Advice:

Read the headlines.  Listen to podcasts.  Keep up to date with the evolving news of pharma/biotech. The life sciences industry is one of the most dynamic (and interesting to follow). By tracking the latest news and technology developments, it will give you a great foundation and head start to our work.

A Day in the Life of an Intern:

As an intern at Trinity I had the opportunity to meet coworkers throughout the company, learn concrete skills like forecasting and interview design, contribute to internal growth projects, and most importantly collaborate on client facing projects. My favorite days on the job were those in which I had the chance to do a bit of everything–meet with clients, synthesize data from in depth interviews, and present recent findings to my team and clients. There are so many different projects going on at Trinity which keeps each day a bit unique and interesting.

Why did you choose Trinity?

I decided to join Trinity as a full time employee because Trinity fosters a culture of learning and excellence. Simultaneously, the company seems to hold high standards for performance while offering employees the tools and support they need to succeed and grow in new areas of interest.

A Day in Your Current Role:

A typical day as a consultant with Trinity’s EVAP team includes a balance of research, meetings with project teams and/or clients, and time spent drafting deliverables. A consultant might spend the morning creating a landscape presentation summarizing key characteristics about Multiple Myeloma treatment in the United States and the afternoon helping run a focus group of physicians and payers assessing the best access pathway for a new immunology therapy in Germany.

My favorite part about working at Trinity is the global nature of our work and many accompanying learning opportunities. So far, I have had over 25 countries in scope across project work.
