Been a while since I was in the job market having been with my previous Big 4 employer for 6 years.
Just wondering if anyone has any advice on the best way to approach the rest of the big 4?
I have three options:
1) Loads of people I know have moved to other Big 4 firms and would no doubt "sponsor my application" (for a big finders fee!)
2) I could apply direct through websites, get caught up in HR circles etc etc
3) I could approach one of the several agencies who are recruiting on their behalf
Common sense tells me that option one would be the best but here's the problem: I don't know why but part of me strongly feels it would be better to apply independently of relationships with ex-colleagues.
So, anyone had any recent experience or stories to tell with regards to this that might be helpful?
Thanks in advance.
