Pierre-Alexandre wanted to explore the business world after completing his master’s degree in computer science. After obtaining an additional degree in business administration, he started his career as a Junior IT Auditor and is now a Manager supervising IT audit engagements.
"I have always been interested in new technologies and I think that is why I started studying computer science. During my studies, I had the opportunity to meet people from various backgrounds, from risk officers and financial controllers to information security specialists. After obtaining my master’s degree in computer science, I wanted to explore the business world and, thus, obtained a second degree in business administration. I was looking to start my career in a company where I could make good use of my knowledge. I have now been working at KPMG Luxembourg for five years. I started off as a Junior IT Auditor in the Information Risk Management department. My job there was to analyze specific, automated business processes and the underlying IT systems and operations."
"Growing in this firm is really exciting, both professionally and personally. You are surrounded by very qualified people from various backgrounds who are passionate about what they do. It just feels like you are in the right place to become who you want to be. KPMG offers you a lot of opportunities to take on more responsibilities, to explore new paths and to develop your own career."
"I am currently a Manager at KPMG Luxembourg, supervising several IT audit engagements and performing various advisory missions, from assisting clients in strategic change decisions to driving compliance work towards new regulations. What is crazy is that since the beginning of my journey at KPMG Luxembourg, every day is different from the previous one. You can have a call to discuss an engagement with colleagues from KPMG offices around the world and, an hour later, lead a meeting with C-level executives from a top company. It was a bit intimidating at first but, as time passes, you really get into it."
"Just go for it! The beginning may be tough and will require a lot of dedication and hard work, but it will definitely be worth it. You will acquire great knowledge and build an even stronger network of colleagues and clients, allowing yourself to improve in many different ways."
