Reaching for hire ground at UW Foster

November 15, 2017 by

The average person spends about 23% of their time working. At 2A we endeavor to make every minute of that 23% something to look forward to!

We take pride in the culture we’ve built. We believe that our secret sauce comes from our people who’ve been carefully chosen not only for their skills, but also for the way they work with others. These people have a knack for building strong partnerships with clients and fellow colleagues, resulting in better work.

2A has strong ties to the University of Washington. It was started by alumni from the Foster School of Business, and many other 2A team members have graduated from UW. So, it comes as no surprise that we go back to Foster each year to recruit MBAs for our growing team. Foster prepares its MBA students with the smarts needed to succeed as a 2A consultant, and cultivates a strong team spirit.

We hosted (what we like to call) a strategic mingling session on campus last week with our traditional 2A spread of oysters from Taylor Shellfish and bubbles. The session gave students an idea of a day in the life of a 2A consultant and covered aspects of what makes marketing consulting at 2A unique.

Our focus was to create a comfortable environment where students aren’t subjected to a dreary presentation, or starved for choice with stale sandwiches, or scrambling to get noticed. At 2A we take the time to get to know the audience. We work off insights, best practices, lessons learned and we’re not afraid to break out of the mold.

We want to take the stress out of networking, and make it easier for us to find consultants who would fit into our culture. So, if you’re a Foster MBA, graduating soon, and you missed the happy hour on campus, drop us an email at, tell us about your favorite Seattle brand in 50 words or less and we’ll take you to coffee.

We want to get to know you, and hear your story. After all, you could be the 2A secret sauce that will keep our clients coming back for more!
