Salaam everyone. I was wondering if anyone had advice for a second year auditor who is trying to make the move to advisory, and then eventually Strategy. I've spoken to a few people in advisory, but so far it appears a transition in the near future doesn't seem likely. Any advice on how to work towards a future role in Strategy or tips on steps I should take?

Probably giving myself away, but I made a transition from an audit-esque advisory practice to strategy as a 1st year senior. It helped that I had previous strategy experience, but I focused on showing the strategy team that I was capable of the work by helping out on as many proposals and internal stuff as possible. At the same time, did a lot of networking and developed a group of supportive partners who pulled me into the practice. Hope this is helpful!
