Hi! I've recently got offered two entry-level positions that I am currently contemplating about and hoped to hear some guidance and advice before making my final choice.
My goal is to move on to a top MBA (M7, T-15) about 5 years later and to possibly make a transition in to MBB or Tier 2 (OW, S&, Big 4) Consulting soon in my career. I've wanted to learn which of these choices would better position me to achieve this goal.
1. Energy, Sustainability Consulting in Tier 3 Firm (Think ZS, Guidehouse, Huron)
2. Strategy, Risk Consulting at Top Insurance Brokerage Firm (Think Marsh, WTW, AON)
I do like the topics of energy and Insurance very much. Energy I think is a topic well-positioned towards the future and Insurance has been a strong sector that also has large potential due to the increasing level of uncertainty within society.
The one concern I have is that, I might be getting too specialized in a certain industry at too early of my career. I'm worried that this might hinder the possibility of getting into a top MBA and transitioning my career in to MBB or Tier 2 consulting within my future.
I'd love to hear any advice regarding the choices I should make and hope you have a great day!
