Hi! I’m not sure where to seek advice and was thinking this might be a suitable platform.
Recently I have transferred to the Value Creation team in the Deal Advisory (Big4) practice. It was an internal transfer. I was previously from the Risk Consulting practice. Even though are some similar scope from my previous role, I am still considered inexperience as I do not have the same exposure. However, the Director has accepted me for the position as there are transferable skills and also I am doing a part time Master in IT. They are looking for people with analytics background to grow their practice.
Since I joined the team in July I have been on BD work such as building use cases for data analytics workstream. As much as I enjoyed it I am not sure how long will I be on BD work. i did tell my mentor that I want to have exposure on actual work and at the same time if I am up for promotion in July 2023 I will be an Assistant Manager.
Any advice how should I ask my mentor what the director has in mind regarding my development plan? When also should I expect to be plotted on actual engagement?
