Hi FaeLLe and Strong Eagle,
That is what I actually read after researching about management consulting and about Accenture in particular. I found out I could actually be positioned as an analyst (the entry-level consultant) depending on my experience. This is also based on a discussion I had with some of my Accenture-consultant friends. I have been reading everything about their services, industrial clients, and career paths, and I even downloaded several pdf files about their services
And I inferred that I could give it a shot. What I worried right now is the fact that Accenture Singapore might prefer local talents rather than hiring foreigners as pointed out by Mi Amigo.
I prefer the Singapore office simply because the opportunity for more regional Asian exposure compared to its sister regional SEA offices. That is because other SEA countries are emerging economies. For instance, Accenture Jakarta will likely send its consultants to local companies in regional Indonesia rather than send its consultants to, say, Philippine or Taiwan. But the fact that today's global economy is moving slowly simply concurs my scepticism about getting hired at the Singapore office.
And no Strong Eagle, I was never invited for an interview by Accenture. They rejected me just a day after I submitted my CV and cover letter. When I spoke to my Accenture-consultant friends after the rejection (when I should have done that before applying), they pointed out my 3-page long CV. The mistake is I was using my academia-tailored CV for a professional appointment
That is why I said I was being naive and ignorant about this one. Right now, I'm preparing everything I could for the management-consulting recruitment.
And I was right, it was FaeLLe who got an offer by Accenture Singapore 2 years ago. He was using a third-person expression and referred himself as a friend (to anyone reading his message and particularly to those who are actually Accenture consultants that happened to read his message) on his opening message in this thread. But his subsequent messages changed to the use of a first-person expression
Thank you all for your time to provide your insights.
