Cheers for the input guys,
I will check out the general programmes but I was looking through all general grad schemes and theres a fine line before a grad scheme that anyone can do and a top one. Lets think about money, but im coming to a conclusion that the extra 5-10 grand on offer is to compensate for buying your life. I would rather work less for less money, but i would be interested in progression etc.
A few firms ive looked at it seems like grad schemes are only for a few years then you leave?! whats that about !
RE: merril lynch, im pretty sure they are one of the best consultants out there. (Not sure on the exact type of consulting they do) But im surprised that if you have a job in the area, your not aware of them. I am aware of the best consultants, most of there names I dont know/cant spell, and these ones are very hard to get into. It was more the next tier of KPMG /DELOITTE.
those KPMG hours sound attractive but i am not sure if they have a manchester office / are big on travel. Then again deloitte sound big on travel.
Maybe it isnt for me but im really struggling here as to what is. One thing im not big on is complex maths based problems! which rules out some finance and maybe even accounting. I dont want a career in an unrelated area such as law. So im struggling.
On the student room that i post on, everyone has the same idea that consultancy and IB are the big dawg jobs. and jobs in HR, marketing and sales and not in the same league. I also came across alot less starting salaries for these fields. But then again im sure each of these 3 involve travel!
It sounds like all this you get a degree for better jobs and better money is bullshit and that you only get more money because they are buying your social life.
Is there anything business related that has an office in manchester that doesnt involve stupid hours or excessive travel!
