Recently got offered a position as a consultant at Capgemini invent. Been working in finance transformation for the past 1.5 years for a large multinational (straight out of university, corporate finance Masters degree). Always enjoyed the combination of technology and finance. After the consulting offer my current employer offered me new position in finance transformation on international level (with a pretty huge increase in pay), project expected to last about 1.5 years.
The reason I applied to a consulting role is to improve soft skills like presenting and story telling (as I do not really develop those in my current role). The role offered at my current firm would have the benefit of getting international experience and working close to exec's, as well as working in a team with experienced ex-consultants now in the industry.
If I would go down that path at my own firm, would a switch to consulting still be feasible later on (if I feel like developing earlier mentioned skills), having around 3 YOE in an industry role? Or would making the switch now be more beneficial?
Would be glad to have your take on it :).
Have a great weekend!
