Grad scheme -> IB after 6 months??

 
#1 Grad scheme -> IB after 6 months??
10/03/2008 19:08

JJ

Hi

I was hoping to get some useful feedback.

I am currently on a Big 4 (prof services) grad scheme and have enjoyed my 1st 6 months or so. However, a couple of roles in IB have come up that I am suited to and in the area where I would like to end up eventually. I have extensive post-graduate experience at uni which is what they are demanding, in addition to exposure to a FS environment.

I was just wondering if this would look bad to the potential employer/ recruiter if I rocked up after 8 years at uni and was looking for a new role after only 6 months? As I say I am very well suited to it (don't want to go into specifics as I KNOW that some managers in my department read this board), but would I look like someone who can't stick the job, or a canny candidate looking to step up a couple of rungs?

Cheers

JJ

If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.

Surely one rabbit is already in the bag? He’s just chasing a fatter one to replace it with…

To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.

Yes, Miyagi. That is precisely what I am attempting to do on this forum.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.

He who strikes the first blow admits he's lost the argument.
