Internship experiences include a Risk advisory stint at a Big 4. Think internal audit and enterprise risk mgmt implementation. Not rly a fan of Big 4 cos of the long hours and low starting pay but all my peers, bc of old mindset reasons, want to go b4 so i do feel a bit of peer pressure there.

Should i go for big 4 again or MNCs/Banks as my first job? For MNCs, I am looking more at Management Associate Programmes and for Banks, I am looking at Risk Management/Compliance roles. Also, how difficult is it to get those roles?

Thanks all
Definitely MA programs, but note that the success rate for MAPs is incredibly low so cast your net very wide and apply for big 4 as a backup.

Hands down on this! There's probs like max roughly 200 MA slots across banks and MNCs and you're pitting yourselves against everyone from all walks of life

Since you have FCH, you should make the most out of it! It opens so many doors for you, why shut them off due to "peer pressure"?

Some of your peers might not even have that choice.

But are you just chasing after money? Or is there a particular track you're interested in?

You need to decide what you want in life, and which is the best route to take to get there.
