I am currently exploring job opportunities in consulting, transitioning from Industry. I have 7 years work experience ( procurement) + 6 months(marketing) + 1 year internship (marketing). Not sure if I can count the internship and call it almost 8 years. I am looking at opportunities in London.
I am looking to transition into consulting. My best bet is procurement related consulting where I can leverage my industry experience. My questions are:
1. what would be the right level to enter into a consulting firm , especially Deloitte? Would Senior Consultant be the right level or Manager level? Bear in mind I did not manage a team directly reporting to me in my experience however, I have managed resources to complete projects. Someone I met from Deloitte, a company of interest to me, suggested I go for a Senior Consultant. I am concerned that I may undersell myself.
2. What would be a good salary? With 8 years almost of experience and Business Masters and Electrical Bachelors Degree what would be a fair compensation to ask for.
If you could just help me clarify this, it would be great.
