25 Year Reflections

In 1999, I was a young high school graduate with dreams of a career in molecular biology, which I thought would satisfy my intellectual curiosity. As time passed, I realized that my interests were broader than I thought.

Reflecting on my journey, I am surprised to find myself in the field of consulting, a path I never anticipated taking. My experiences, both humorous and humbling, have taught me valuable lessons, such as the importance of patience and attention to detail in my work.

25 Year Reflections

Technology was vastly different in 1999. Dial-up internet was a struggle, and fax and email were the primary modes of communication. Journal entries took overnight to process, and I even had to play a network admin role when server issues arose.

I never foresaw the shift to cloud storage or the evolution of smartphones into mini computers. While I miss the direct interactions of the past, I value the efficiency of modern communication. Initially resistant to smartphones, I now rely on them heavily.

Why I Love Bridgepoint

Liz Dunlap

I chose to work at Bridgepoint because I was interested in working for multiple clients without the need to handle billing personally. I particularly enjoy the flexibility to schedule my work around travel while also supporting my clients on the go.

Nathan Platt

Bridgepoint is dedicated to delivering exceptional work products, promoting work-life balance and fostering growth. Not only am I able to achieve my career and development goals, but I’m also given the flexibility to pursue personal goals outside of work.

Arlene Yeager
