I am a recent grad looking for job and have been applying to lots of analyst position at many AM firms. No luck yet but I did get a position at a boutique consulting firm (think, http://www.consultingmag.com/article/ART830192?C=F...). We work with F500 technology companies.
I am concerned because although consulting does sound interesting and hopefully i can get some sales data analytic type projects, however it's not AM.
Obviously a job is better than being unemployed but if I want to get into AM what is the best way to go.
I actually would think some operational experience would look good for AM but because it's not MBB i'm worried about Bschool exit ops and the future. After working there for a few months should I try to leverage the experience? What for?
I was thinking of getting a back office role at some WM management firm because at least it is finance. I would then have time to study for cfa. and leverage for analyst positions
