I’m considering applying to either actuarial or audit graduate roles. I know for certain that there are more vacancies available in audit, however, I feel that actuarial is more motivating for me. Has anyone here had the same problem? I guess my question is really whether you would prioritise your motivation in getting a job, or your chance to get a job. I do understand that it is a very difficult time, which would make prioritising the chance to get a job a better option, but at the same time, would you really apply for a role if you think that another would suit you better?
Any opinion would be much appreciated.
Also, if anyone else has applied for both audit and actuarial roles in the big 4 in particular, how different are the screening processes (as in which one is more demanding etc etc?)
