I work at EY cyber and I’m a staff 2 Just got two awesome offers: one from Microsoft that pays REALLY well, here. And I also got an offer to transfer to Europe with EY and I would be promoted to senior consultant in the process. I’m 22yo so money is not my main concern. (But tbh I still like money😆) I always wanted to live abroad for a while. What should I choose? What would y’all choose especially considering my young age? Should I go abroad, for less money but the experience could be awesome?

How big is the pay difference? In your shoes, I would've done msft, prioritizing career progression and saying I could always travel later. But time goes by quicker than you think, and you may find yourself without an opportunity like this in the near future or it just won't be the right time for you personally so with the benefit of hindsight, I'd say seize your opportunities as they come up if they are important to you. Go to Europe.


Read a few of the comments/responses from OP. I moved to Berlin from USA for a job and am happy that I did so after a few more years of experience in the US before going abroad. Also, you speak French and would be in a pre sales role. There will be lots of opportunities to move abroad for you coming up with that type of background. I would go with Microsoft and make a plan for where and when you realistically want to move abroad, also being open and aware for any opps that come up in the meantime.

MSFT for all things tech, bounce back to EY at a higher salary bracket / after post grad edu (that MSFT pays for!)

MSFT, you”ll have more than enough gains to live aboard without working at all

OP - what do you do in cyber ?

Thanks KPMG! It’s a security technical Specialist role. Basically a technical pre-sales position


MSFT without a doubt

You can’t go wrong either way. However, going to Europe next months with EY I’m say you will lose your tech skill. They are bringing you there in a they lack the tech talent. Consider this in your decision. We should connect

Jesus Christ I just realized how bad autocorrect screwed this up. In summary, you’ll lose your tech skill staying at EY. Consider this in your decision.

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?
