need help in career decision making..

fangel

Hello all,

I am a third year student at a semi target. (top 20 ranked in the world)

I have had internships at a F100 conglomerate strategy team, PwC and Accenture.

Accenture was particularly interesting as my project was the first of its kind to be done in a country. (FAS division)

I have a very low gpa (3.0/4.0) though my first year and 2nd year are absolutely atrocious, I have close to 4.0 gpa in my third year and will try to maintain that throughout my senior year.

I wish to begin my career at a strategy firm. After experiencing operation firm projects, I do not feel it is much of an intellectual challenge; physical challenge more like due to redundant and very structured type of work.

What firms could I aim for with these stats to at least get an interview?

I'm not the kind of person who's like mbb or death though I do wish for quality experience and work .

fangel you can more or less forget getting into strategy firms with those stats. Getting into consultancy at all is likely to be an uphill battle, frankly.

Even I agree with mars. It will be very difficult to get into a strategy firm. You can contact to any recruitment agency . In this situation they can help you.

daryltabb a recruitment agency absolutely cannot help in this situation - who would pay a fee for the introduction of a candidate who lacks even the core credentials?

Hi mars If fangel is having a good knowledge then it is possible for him to get a job. Some people are having good marks but still unemployed. It is complete depend on his knowledge.

Mr Cool to daryltabb (#7)

Bit hard to display knowledge without getting an interview and short if a personal intro, his cv will not make it through the first filter.
