Does anyone know what is happening with recruits of PWC in America, my offer has been pushed back 10 months already and I do not see an end to their hold out. Can anyone give me any information on this situation.

It's only a hunch, but I would imagine most of the key personnel are focussed on IPO / sell-off issues and that finding work for new recruits will be a second priority until this issue is resolved...

All the major consultancies have been pushing back their recruitment. A lot of candidates who have been accepted, not just in USA but elsewhere, have been told not to report for work for months. My suggestion would be to look around for smaller, perhaps niche consultancies and put yourself on the market to those. Alternatively, look for positions in business, so that you can gain some experience to offer to the consultancy when they are recruiting again. Frankly, the large consultancy houses are not the best places to be right now - they are holding off recruitment, laying off staff, and finding the previously cushioned world of the big consultancy firms tighter than ever and - horror - having to cut their rates. Good luck, but don't wait for them to call.

Hi Michael,

It's good to read your considered advice in this thread.

l'm looking to move from Australia to UK soon and my research aligns with your advice.

From my perspective, l see the "only way" to penetrate the UK marketplace is:

- by having a UK Work Permit, or firm Offer of Work in-hand

- by looking for work in smaller niche Consultancies

- by focussing on a discrete area of work (Audit; Tax; etc)

- by flexibility regarding remuneration; location; work type etc

Notwithstanding the Doom & Gloom from Michael and me there are opportunities for good, experienced candidates who can prove they're willing to work and, that they can deliver Premium ROI..

Best regards in your search efforts - David
