Would I be able to get a higher salary outside of Ireland ?
Hi all, I am currently in the first year of my course studying global commerce in National University of Ireland, Galway. Our programme is partnered with Deloitte who give grants to students studying abroad and also offer work placements to students in their Dublin and Galway offices. Very often they offer students jobs after their work placement upon completing the course and occasionally a masters/mba which they also pay for.
I would be confident of securing a job through my good grades and also contacts in Deloitte as my father has friends on the board and also knows the CEO of Deloitte Ireland personally. I would like to work in management consulting but my problem is that the salaries they offer in Ireland to consultants is no where near what they offer in the US and other offices around the globe (most Irish employees would start on roughly 35,000 euro per year).
Unfortunately it is very hard to live off that in Ireland, particularly in Dublin where the cost of living is ridiculously high. I was wondering how easy would it be to secure a job in a US or higher paying European office and is it much more competitive in those places ? Would my contacts be any use for securing a job elsewhere ? Any feedback would be highly appreciated !
