I am a recent graduate from a non-target New England business school with a BSBA and double concentration in Finance and Economics. I have recently accepted a job at BBH () in Boston as a fund accountant. I realize that this is a job, but I know that the name holds some level of prestige, and I felt that working at a firm like this early in my career would open me up to various aspects of the industry that I may not be exposed to at smaller firms. In addition, I want to lean as much as possible, and my hope is that this role will allow me to gain some industry and operational knowledge.
That being said, I know that this is ajob, and I don't want to pigeonhole myself into strictly BO or accounting roles in the future. My real interest is something with more client facing, as I am a sociable person who enjoys communicating and problem solving.
I feel that a good move for me would be to try and secure an analyst role and move on from there. Since I am a recent grad, I'm not necessarily knowledgeable about what the best positions are for someone like me trying to advance their career, and along with that I realize that there are probably many types of firms that may be a good idea for me to look into.
I am simply looking for guidance and advice, be it about BBH, fund accounting (or moving on from there), trying to steer my career, potential firms in Boston, or types of firms/ positions I should look into, or any other advice.
