Her passion for technology and learning, coupled with S&P Global's willingness to train strong candidates created a new opportunity for this Analyst
Meredith Polson loves problem-solving. But when she applied for a Senior Business Analyst role at S&P Global, she had a problem of her own to solve: she worried she didn't have the technological experience the role required. Instead of turning Meredith down, S&P Global recognized her passion for learning and embraced her "problem" - and obvious enthusiasm around learning - up-skilling her for the role.
S&P Global is looking for more candidates like Meredith who don't shy away from perceived problems or challenges and who embrace a growth-mindset.
