The Impact of Interdisciplinary Thinking in Designing my Career Path

My name is Prajju Mantha, and I’m originally from Seattle, WA in the US. I graduated in 2020 with a BA in Political Science with a Minor in Commerce, and currently work as a Senior Sales Operations Analyst for Dell Technologies.

My current role involves supporting Dell’s federal sales team in their large order sales to federal customers, fulfilling orders, and providing status updates and ad-hoc reports across cross-functional operations teams.

During my time at UBC, I was particularly interested in exploring interdisciplinary thinking in deciding my future career path, which encouraged me to look for extracurricular opportunities and coursework to sharpen this skill. Taking a design thinking course at UBC and engaging with students in a variety of different majors helped me broaden my mindset through applying design thinking frameworks to business innovation, and narrow down the career path I wanted to pursue.

Today, I’d like to talk with you all about some of the methods and frameworks I used to help get me to my current position and navigate working life post-UBC.
