“ Do you choose which type of clients to work with on a daily basis? Or does it depend on the type of projects available? ”

For example; do you specialise in working with clients from a specific industry?

When I started in Risk Advisory I had my schedule done for me for the first few months as this included initial training and a few bookings to clients to give me some initial experience. But from then on I had the opportunity to talk to various managers and to find projects that I am interested in.

It is a combination of the 2 really. As you move up the firm you begin to specialise more, and become an expert for a sector or client. At first you can try to get on projects that interest you and people are normally friendly about it and try to move you if they can.

What I would say is every single project I have done has been different and has given me a lot of exposure and knowledge.

I agree with Andrew, the more you work, the more experience you get and the more you find the area you want to specialise in. You can become either an industry expert or you can become a subject matter expert, e.g. fraud

Also you tend to gravitate towards certain managers who you like to work for / work on projects you are interested in. So the more you work with them, the more likely they are to book you on projects you like.

My experience was the same; the first few projects are given to you and the team I work in ensured that I was exposed to a wider range and industries and clients (small partnerships to PLCs). When you get a feel for the kind of sector you'd like more experience in, you can request to be placed on projects that best suit your career aspirations. At Deloitte you have almost endless choice and your personal preferences are considered by your management team when project teams are put together. If you have any preferences, make these known and they'll be accommodated as best they can!
