I’m in Big 4 Tech consulting and have industry experience as well. Is your implementation experience with any specific vendor or product? If, for example, with your experience you could be a stream lead on an S4 Hana implementation I would say you would have no trouble finding a role in Canada. Personally I wouldn’t recommend a Canadian MBA solely to get into tech consulting here. If you want to build a network or acquire the business school knowledge that’s one thing, but I wouldn’t bother just as a means to get a Big 4 job.

Deloitte definitely does Anaplan work. Not sure about the others. It’s obviously not Big 4 but Infosys does as well. Could you perhaps do some research on who the big Canadian implementers are? Are you certified?

It’s a hot market right now so you should be good

Yeah I can count 4 projects that touch Anaplan so no issues finding you a role at Deloitte atleast

How you burned us at year end then paid out bonuses to EVERYONE in 2021, even new joiners who weren't with the firm in 2020 (much less saving your a$$es on call centers contracts). Oh, and not to mention laying off so many people I personally invested in (contd)
