There is an opportunity for me to start as internship is Deloitte. I havent worked in consulting before, but studied business and Im trying to get in to the consulting.

Do you think this internship might lead to a job offer?

Sure, if you do well (and of course assuming they are hiring full-time graduates the following year)

Parka to a (#2)

Hi a, thanks for the reply.

Let me put it this way. I have a job in other field, not consulting. If I want to leave my job and go for this internship my salary will cut in more than half!

The only reason for me to consider this opportunity is it to be a gateway to consulting.

So I would like to ask some experts' opinions, should I do this?

This is insane - you are basing what appears to be a fairly significant life decision on the uninformed views of a bunch of students, yet supplying them with no background info to work with.

At least supply a bit of context to allow people to make marginally more educated guesses...

Parka to D (#4)

Hi D,

I dont based my decision on the answers here, I', just looking for some advice.

Well you are right, I should provide more information. I have 4 years experience in HR; I have a MBA from a not accredited college.

To accept this new offer, I would be responsible for my own accommodation, visa etc etc. and the salary as I said is much less.

They said I can choose to have an internship for 1 to 3 months, and they are not sure if there would be an opening after that.

anon to Parka (#1)

No. You are wasting your time considering an internship unless you are fed up with your current job and would be resigning anyway.

You should apply to consultancies for a proper full-time consultancy job. If you cannot get one for whatever reason, then a short internship is not going to catapult you onto any shortlists.

Mars A Day to Parka (#5)

Parka what was your objective in doing the MBA? And why an not accredited business school?

Parka to Mars A Day (#8)

@ a: It is in UAE, Dubai

@ anon: thanks, that's what I wanted to know.

@ Mars: I've got MBA because I wanted to study business, but then I got involved in HR consultancy more than strategy. Well it is not accredited because I didn’t have much choice because of my personal circumstances that time

Era to Parka (#9)

If it's Deloitte in Dubai, that makes a big difference. Unfortunately, I am almost certain that they will not offer you a job after the internship - in London or the US internships are an extended job assessment; at the Big4 in the Middle East they are cheap disposable labour. There is not the same concern to maintain goodwill with interns after the company has finished with them.

im_consultant to Era (#10)

Hi Parka,

Did you decide to join Deloitte Dubai? If you did, how are you finding it?

Have you had any luck converting your internship into a full time role?

The reason I ask is: I am in a similar position, due to start my consulting internship at Deloitte Dubai soon and have the same question in mind.
