Corporate Strategy in F500

 
#1 Corporate Strategy in F500

nerdie

Hi experts here

I am a undergraduate student who will graduate in the coming June.

Recently, after a long and tough road of hunting job, I finally find my interest and decide my long-term career goal.

I discover I am interested in marketing, meanwhile dealing with business clients, enjoy international exposure and going on business trips etc. In the future, I would like to become one of the analyst in corporate strategy of F500 companies. For example, I will enjoy making decisions in areas of bringing a certain product into a new market, withdrawing a certain product from a market, analyzing competitors' movements etc...

I wonder what would be a good starting point for it, except working in consulting firms? Do I need to be very quantitative to work in such roles, like obtaining CPA from big 4 or working in banks/ibanks?

Thanks very much!

Nerdie I doubt your long and tough road of hunting job has really been either long or tough. If it had been either, let alone both, your communication skills and research skills would be much better honed - to the point even where you could find the answers to your rather chaotic questions on say Google.

I do love your confidence in saying what you will enjoy (future tense specific). Very admirable. I will enjoy adding 1 sugar to my coffee tomorrow morning. I am confident of that, after a long and tough road of deliberating low-cal sweetner or sugar. White. I'm a little bit pleb.

So you are interested in marketing. Lovely. Corporate strategy in a F500 company? Making decisions about market access, product decomission, spying on the competition eh? Sounds very McKinsey-like. Best apply there. Otherwise you'll wind up in a marketing role probably looking at how to SEO social media so search engines can pick up every conversation or comment about Yak's Milk infused conditioner and working out, with laborious creativity, how to 'trend' it. Make it viral. Even a meme. How be still my beating fart.
