I posted a while back last year on going from Big 4 Internship to MBB. I have adjusted my expectations and now I want to do a follow up thread.
So a background: I am a Canadian at a non target, I worked a year at a top 20 energy company as an Intern then jumped over to a Big 4 for summer audit. The thing is, I find it very mind numbing of a job and I am no longer interested in pursuing this route. They will most likely provide me with a full time offer at the end.
I am quite interested now in doing Tier 2 consultancies (Deloitte,Accenture, OW, Big 4 advisory, IBM) but to go for recrutment at these firms; it will mean I have to reject my audit offer. I am very interested in doing something with financial transformation, data analytics or IT strategy - as I feel this is the future.
Do you folks think I should just accept the offer or risk it and go for recruitment.I have zero connections with consultancies and will be going in cold. Or should I just bite the bullet and get my CPA and go from there?
