Has any of the MBB been doing much work in public sector since the onset of pandemic? Would they be willing to hire someone with exclusively public sector experience of +6 years and an MBA from Canada? Asking because during the MBA recruitment, public sector experience was not helpful as MBB didn't focus there a lot.

If public sector clients struggle to pay big 4 rates, then I don’t see how there can be a lot of public sector work with MBB :/

We do a lot of public sector work. But if you're joining as a generalist associate it doesn't matter which industry u come from. This is ofcourse different for the expert track

Yes, we have hired people with public sector experience. We look for diverse backgrounds (and your MBA, assuming it’s from a top tier school, brings a lot of signalling value). But you will come in and be a generalist.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
