I'm currently working in recruitment (not a consultant) - as an Account Manager dealing predominantly with advertising and HR Communications. I'm feeling very understretched, want to get into HR Consultancy and think my experience in a specialised area should be a decent selling point. I've got a good degree behind me, an Open University management diploma and 2.5 yrs work experience. Question is: Should I be applying to graduate schemes or does my experience make me an experienced hire? I get the impression grad routes are my best bet.........thanks! Any other advice much appreciated.
