Network w people in ER at citi and express interest in eventually applying should an opportunity arises. With CFA L2 passed, you’ll be a good candidate should you become aware of any interview. Don’t push your resume on anyone. Just keep chatting w people until the opportunity arises. No specific timeline, but I promise you this will work if you exercise discipline and patience

What sector are you wanting to cover? I suggest you pick an industry that interests you and that you have, or can gain the relevant experience in. Familiarize yourself with some of the names in the space so when you do end up networking or interviewing you can talk about the companies and the industry itself. Also keep in mind the qualifications for each industry will differ, for example Biotech equity research typically requires a PhD. Hope this helps! Happy to chat more :)

I just started at Accenture in late Feb with their resources group(Industry X) as a Senior Analyst (L10)at 88k and 10k signon. Last week AlliantGroup offered a PM role in the 179D group at 160k= perf bonus. I am planning on taking that offer to ACN given my experience (9 Yr in Oil & Gas engineering) and education (TAMU MBA) and use it as leverage to get bumped up to consultant (L9) or senior consultant (L8). Is this a sound strategy for current or former Accenture peeps? Thoughts?
