I am a recent graduate of Commerce (accounting) with accounting and customer service experience, looking for full time employment. I initially applied to big four firms in Advisory and also to management consulting firms, as I am good at working with people. Big four firms appeal to me because I am desperate to find a job that allows me to travel or potentially transfer overseas at some stage. I was unable to secure a role. I am now looking closely into pursuing a DFP hoping to get a role as a paraplanner and progress to a financial advisor. I feel that there are many more opportunities in this field. I also feel there is a great similarity between the function of a financial planner to the function of an advisory or management consulting firm. What I want to know is: Are there global opportunities for a young successful financial planner? If not; Could working in financial planning lead me back into a management consulting or advisory role at a big four firm? Thanks, Any advice is much appreciated, especially from those who have had these experiences.
