I graduated recently and am starting a masters this year. Wikijobs is a great place to share career information and I hope that someone here can help me…
As between consulting and tax at the Big 4, I do prefer consulting, but my degree is more relevant to tax than consulting; the Big 4 state that they accept applications from all degree disciplines, but I would expect them to have preferences.
As between Consulting and Tax, I am wondering:
- Which department has more graduate placements? I read that the Big 4 hire significant numbers of people, but I can’t find a breakdown indicating how many graduate placements there are in Audit, Consulting and Tax.
- What is the relative size of the Audit, Consulting and Tax departments? i.e. is tax a small department with few graduate positions?
- What are the degree preferences for Consulting and Tax? i.e. which disciplines are preferred for both business areas.
Thanks in advance!
