I’m currently applying to KPMG for Transactions and Restructuring, as it seems to offer a variety of experience in different departments and the chance to get the ACA qualification is appealing too. However I don’t plan on remaining within a Big 4 firm for long after qualifying, as moving into a financial department in industry is (for the moment) my main goal. However does the choice of service area that I choose to go into now have an effect on what I can do afterwards? I’m aware that audit is seen to be more general and practical in terms of transferability, but having read loads of people’s views on it I don’t know if it would really be for me.
Can anyone offer any advice?
