My name is Verena, I am 23 years old and Austrian citizen. After successfully graduating from university with a Bachelor degree I am currently fulfilling voluntary work for an NGO in the middle of nowhere in Cambodia until the end of February 2018.
As I already did a 6-month internship in a Treasury department in London and a 4-month internship in Canada in the area of Accounting I decided a Financial Consulting position would be the perfect fit for me.
However, the question I am asking myself at the moment is: Is it possible to apply for a Consulting Traineeship in Europe even though I am in Asia at the moment? I would like to come back and start working in April or May and I am honest, I kind of get a bit stressed as I do not want to miss a chance to get into a program I would really like such as KPMG or Deloitte.
What is your opinion on that? Any experiences so far?
Furthermore, do you think it is wise to apply somewhere in Asia for a Consulting position even though it is really competitive and my chances in Europe would be better as my mother tongue is German and I do not know any Chinese or Japanese?
Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate every answer.
