Advice needed

 
#1 Advice needed

Roland

I graduated last summer and would like to develop a career in consultancy. However, due to the slow-down I saught work in other areas hoping to move into consultancy later. I have been offered a choice of two careers at Bacon & Woodrow. One is as an investment consultant -which involves taking either CFA or actuarial exams, the other is in Employee Benefits, doing actuarial exams. Since the company will have merged with Hewitt Associates by the time I join, I have been told I could move into their part of the industry after a few years, but only from the Employee Benefits position. Would either of these positions enhance/hinder my chances of moving into management consultancy at a later point? I am worried that both these career paths appear somewhat narrow. Any advice would be welcomed.

Roland, I would advise that in the current climate the most important thing is to get some form of consulting experience on your CV. With a shortage of graduate offers at present, and many grads having had to sit out a long period of deferred entry, a couple of years experience should leave you in a strong position to move 2 years from now. Regards Peter
