You need to decide what you want in life, and which is the best route to take to get there.
FCH but lacking on work exp/leadership imo. But no harm trying

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

Doesnít matter which function. And itís arguably better than their consulting/TAS arms too. With the only exceptions being their strat arms (MD, S& etc)
