Why’s it always Deloitte who’s gotta be the big D? Accenture’s always hiring, sounds like you’d be a better fit for digital

Everyone is hiring. You need to be able to show what your value is. Also....with only 14 months experience don't be shocked if you get sent back to square zero with only more pay to show for it

OP in my humble opinion pls stay where you are, at least make it 2 years but I would stay three. Second don’t take lateral move and if there is no significant jump don’t even bother. Trust me Consulting is a weird place. Today you might be implementing work but trust me when the BOW is thin they will send you Tennessee to do AML or data entry. This could happen anywhere. I heard Accenture bow is thin now and if you are on the bench more than 4 weeks they kick you out. Otherwise we are hiring and can get you in Bcz at the end of the day I’m not a headhunter. Watch out from all these people who is trying to make referral bonus

^thanks for the advice. I have been targeting Accenture cause where I feel I’d fit best. I’ve had a phone screening for “technology associate” but is very low paying. I’m trying to get an interview for “technology analyst” which is more of their entry level consulting

If you're looking to still do Digital Strategy then Deloitte and ACN are probably the places to be. I believe MBB is making some moves into that area but I haven't really kept up with who of those three is doing well I'd advise you not to take the Technology Associate role - that's a level even below the Analyst position at ACN My opinion also is that you should ignore pretty much everything SC3 just said - every single point he/she is either wrong or an overly broad generalization. Just my humble opinion 😂

TSC1 your sales pitch didn’t work, try again. My first answer was given assuming OP already has a job. Since OP was laid off, what do you expect him to do? Of course OP needs to find another job as quickly as possible and is open to just about anything whether it’s digital strategy or implementation work, it doesn’t matter at this point. FB community talks about the BOW, have you not heard how people are let go when they are on bench for more than three weeks. Yes that happened in Accenture and other smaller firms. I know EY and Deloitte is pretty good with the bench period. And I did mention not to go to Accenture but right now whatever OP gets should take it and then hunt for the things he/she passionate about. You people just sit there and have verbal diarrhea without even giving it a proper thoughts. Go figure
