consulting ... correct move?

 
#1 consulting ... correct move?
08/04/2007 12:22

in limbo

I currently work for Ernst & Young doing IT audit (grad scheme, 8months). I have a masters in Business Informatics.

I've been considering a career in consulting for the following reasons:

- I love travel. Especially to remote destinations. (most clients I currently work with are in London and the South East)

- I like meeting new people and working in different environments.

- I'm still young and I dont mind working 50+ hours a week. I'm planning on moving into industry after approx 10years.

Would consulting suit me?

How easy would it be to move considering the 'experience' I have?

BAS is the centre of the world (honest) to in it for the travel (#3)

Hi in limbo

Have you chatted to any of the EY BAS folks ?

I am sure someone will be happy to discuss infromal what it is like in consulting.

Even if you can't / don't want to transfer in EY - may be useful background

anon to BAS is the centre of the world (honest) (#4)

You sound well suited, but one word of caution. A love of travel is no reason to be a consultant at all. All you will see are hotels and airports. You may get a few days off here and there, but that in itself may not be a reason to drive career choice. If you get a long term stint somewhere overseas that would be better for travel.
