I’m new to this message board but if any of you have any advice for me in regards to my query then that would be much appreciated.
I graduated from university last year, and I kind of won a placement competition, where I get the chance to work for three top firms on a rotational placement. The first was with Deloitte in their technology, advisory and assurance service line, the second was within the NHS within a finance project team overlooking a high profile on-going acquisition and third is within a small company called 3Form, where I am currently working on a new enterprising venture that the company recently launched.
The whole idea of the placement was to give me a chance to work within a Big 4, within the public sector and within an SME all within a year of graduating from university.
With all this in mind, I’m looking to gain employment within management consulting for a variety of reasons. Am I right to assume that a lot of the bigger strategy firms have closed their books on recruiting graduates for 2007? I know Accenture are still recruiting, but the likes of Bain, McKinsey etc are closed right? Do you know of any other consulting firms that are recruiting?
My plan of action is to try and get a job within this field, otherwise I’m going back top university to get my masters in International Business before reapplying for intake in 2008; do you feel this is a wise step to take?
Sorry, this is such a long-winded message, but if any of you have any advice/tips, then I would be very grateful if you could leave comments below.
