Risk Consulting or IT Advisory for Promotion to Senior Consultant

 
#1 Risk Consulting or IT Advisory for Promotion to Senior Consultant

Hi All,

i've written on here a few times for a plethora of reasons. At the moment, I'm trying to decide what area i want to specialise / promote into off the back of the graduate programme. I'm pretty torn between risk and IT advisory at the moment. I won't go into specifics, but one of the draws with IT advisory for me is the demand for it now, and in the next few years and the exit opportunities - i want to do my own thing in the future (they also do some pretty cool stuff re qualifications / skills etc) - I'm trying to position myself accordingly..However..I enjoy risk projects as they tend to be short, sharp and intense engagements - i enjoy the subject matter too.

can anyone give any advice into what would help me narrow down my decision? and if anyone has any knowledge on the two areas mentioned and what i should be considering?

Appreciate that was a bit long winded.

Your help would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks,

Well, I think a lot of it depends on what makes you tick as a person. IT advisory would be much more varied but can be very difficult because of unclear client briefs, vague client expectations, and the difficulty in picking or making the right methodology for each project (and the making sure the client is happy with it too, justifying your choices and so on). With IT advisory you would be constantly defending your approach or recommendations. With IT risk there are very well established and uncontentious methodologies. The client will know what they're buying and will have a very clear idea of how you will be going about it. The problem is that it can be very repetitive work. But possibly easier once you get into the flow. So - the question really is, do you want a harder time but maybe learning more, or an easier time but doing somewhat more repetitive work?
