I was wondering if anyone could help.
I graduated from university in 2006, after winning a graduate competition to get a "taster" of three different working environments - the Big4 (Deloitte), the Public Sector (NHS) and the SME sector, I'm currently undertaking my final grad placement with Accenture, as I am pretty sure that consultancy is where I want to start my career within, primarily because of the variety but also the opportunties to learn about how businesses work etc for any future ambitions that i might have! Having said that, I'm also really passionate about exploring opportunties to do with emerging markets, strategy and operations and was wondering whether a consultancy career would offer this? Am I right to assume that the tier 1 firms (mckinsey etc) and tier 2 (deloitte and acn) would offer these opportunties in there relevant areas? It's just that I recently met someone from goldman sachs who was also talking about emerging market opportunties within GS and other investment banks, and was wondering how different it would be to a consultancy environment? Also, if I've had work placements with Deloitte, Accenture etc + high A-Level grades and degree would I be considered by any of the top tier firms?
Any advice/information appreciated!
