Big4 Valuation to IB
I managed to land an analyst position at the valuation practice in one of the big 4.
It's my first after-graduating job even though I have some extra experience (I'm 27. Where I come from we start academic studying a bit later).
I do consider it as a starting point for investment banking eventually, preferably an EB.
My question is 1. whether the experience I'd gain where I am now can leverage my case into IB, or is it not that relevant for investment banks since I won't actually work on transactions and mostly do the valuation/PPA/OPM/audit support.
- I've read that it is recommended to go for the transition within 6 months-year into big 4 experience. Is there a reason for that? Trying to transfer after 3 years for instance would lower my chances?
Thanks in advance.
