I have always been interested in consulting, and due to having moving to Leeds to live with my girlfriend, I am currently considering applying for a position with a few firms.
My question is this; is there any point?
While I know I am pretty clever I have never been top of the class, and although I don’t mind working hard, I want to be starting a family in about 5 years, which means I won’t want to be working more than 45 hours a week by then.
However there are a few good points. I have a 2:1 in Maths and Business (from a year ago, so I am considering applying for graduate positions), I have been working for Experian as an analyst since the day after I graduated and I have already been promoted to a Senior Business Analyst. I am quite entrepreneurial and get on with people well.
I think I’d be good at the job, but are there any consultancies out there that don’t just target the very very best, and don’t require complete dedication to the cause?
