Please dont shoot me down, but I need some advice.
I joined the machine that is known as ACN after my Masters program, back in 07 and was pigeon holed into the SAP Practice as an A1.
Having gone thorugh a few health related difficulties at the time, I was effectively told to go through the Redundancy Program for speaking out against the business and due to ACN not willing to give time out due to health reasons.
I chose the VR route as opposed to taking ACN to an ET under Employment Regulations and as it was a life/death situation requiring surgery.
This was at the start of the recession back in September 08 and since then I have had barely any work and the bulk of my experience was more as an A1/A2 - not technical but SAP nonetheless.
Being sick to death of shoddy recruitment firms and the usual 'No Budget', 'Role not signed off', 'Had to put the role on hold' I am now thinking of re-applying for different consulting schemes - Grad (or Direct entry) on a more Management Consulting/CRM type route - Target Operating Model, BPR, Process Design etc...
The trouble is trying to shake off the SAP Banner (which I can do by keeping the experience gained at ACN generic) and who to apply to - I was thinking of PA but I hear things are bad, I heard the BT scheme is good but it is closed for this year.
I am just after some advice if anyone can help...
I could probably stick with SAP but the work isnt that great and unless you have 6 or 7 lifecycles realistically you do not stand much of a chance.
I am 18 months on and at the point sick of recruiters chatting nonesense and I am trying to save my career and life going down the pan!
P.S If anyone is able to give some advice on 'Customer Systems' this is also a place I have been thinking of applying too.
