Buttigieg included that revelation in a blog column he posted on Medium.com. In the column, Buttigieg described the consulting assignments he had while he worked as an associate at McKinsey & Company, from 2007 through 2010.
The list of assignments included analyzing the effects of price cuts at a supermarket chain, helping the U.S. Department of Defense look for ways to improve the job markets in Iraq and Afghanistan, and helping the U.S. Postal Service find ways to increase revenue.
