I am a recently graduated in engineering from a top school and acting as and FP&A analyst of an operating plant on the steel industry. I am having by now some interviews on Big4 M&A advisory and thinking what should be the best nest step for me having in mind a mid-term career in PE.
My actual job is very linked to management financial stuff. And because of that presents a lot of it as an operational management role. I deal with financial and operational reports, cash flow for the business unit, capital investment analysis and budgeting. I've been in this role for 2 months, because before I was a graduate trainee for the same company but in the business improvement area;
The interview is to an associate level in a Big4 in advisory in M&A but, as I was informed it doesn't involves muchbut focus on sinergies, value creation and ODD.
So, in the opinions of you monekys, what should be the wisest next step if I am aiming to be prepared to PE in a some years?
