I need your advice.
I failed the final interview round at Roland Berger (South East Asia). Today a partner called me and said that they have a Contractor role (about 10 weeks). He asked if I would like to try. If I work well, I may be considered for a future role.
The point is I am currently working for a Big4 firm. Working as a strategy consultant is always my dream, but the partner's offer is risky. My concern is that If after 10 weeks, they can find a more suitable candidate (somebody can actually pass the final round), I may be kicked out.
May I have your advice? I do not want to miss a chance, but I also do not want be to an alternative.
Thank you very much!
Edit: Some backgrounds: I applied for a consultant position at a local office. There are 5 interview rounds. The partner of the local office is at round 4th. I passed this round. However, I could not pass the final round of the managing partner (who is based in Singapore). HR told me that the managing partner does not recommend me to the position. Today the partner of the local office call me the contractor role as they are having a shortage of the staff (I guest they have not yet found the candidate who passed all interview rounds)
