I am 24, a fresh Chartered Accountant and plan to do MBA in the future. I intend to pursue a career in corporate/strategic consultancy. I need your help with the following:
1. At what position should I apply at these firms?
2. Should I first get some experience with a startup/ corporate job before applying for a job at consulting ?
3. Any other inputs you feel are helpful.
Hope to hear from you soon!!
Thanks a lot for the initiative
Not clear what kind of firms you have in mind, but most management/strategy consulting firms rarely hire CAs without an MBA degree - unless you join some corporate finance kind of practice in some of these firms. So first identify the groups/verticals within these firms that do hire fresh CAs.
Most of these firms also do not hire lateral - so the startup/job thing isn't a great idea.
Hope this helps some.
