Advantages of being an analyst in a blue chip corp.?

 
#1 Advantages of being an analyst in a blue chip corp.?

Omar

I have just graduated from a top-tier engineering school with a 3.2 GPA. I have exposure to management consulting from a summer internship and plenty of school leadership and business-related summer work experience. Will firms not consider my experience, due to my low GPA?

I have the opportunity to work as a business analyst for the marketing department of a blue chip airline? If I take the opportunity and work at it for 2-3 years, how would I leverage this potential experience to start a career in management consulting? After 2-3 years of working, will firms lower the weight they place on my GPA?

#2 Take the blue-chip role

Omar - the most recent achievements on your CV are always the most important. So if you have a couple of years with a blue-chip on your CV in an analytical type role, this will be more of a deciding factor than your GPA. Candidates with inside analytical insights into consulting firms' clients will be in strong demand once the consulting market begins to grow again, so I would suggest you take this role or one like it
