    Try a local bank (guess la.. ).. every tom dick harry (especially if they are pretty, or handicapped) they also want. As long as cheap can already.. to replace those suntanning (ugly, full limbs people) in the office. They want "Pretty" becos can improve image. They want "Handicapped" because this also can improve their image. Those ugly uncles and aunties sure must go....

    But to get those high pay jobs, you have to be white skinned and hold a foreign passport, or speak with a foreign accent and studied in a foreign Uni. Girls also can. Guy who served NS may be considered (aka less priority).

    Thank you.
    just send your resume anyway.. That's what i did and got my job. But don't try your luck with the senior positions..

Did some publications as well during my PhD... Since my programming skills are a bit outdated, I'm trying for consultancy instead, which is closer to my latest studies.

    Accenture didn't ask for my scores though, maybe they have some advance screening technologies! Oh well, I'll keep looking...

    Again, thank you all for the tips and tricks
    You got a PhD, your career options may be limited due to your specialisation in whatever you are studying.

    There are few companies that will take on fresh post-graduates. Try a research position if possible. I think you may fare better.

    Of course, personality and appearance plays a part as well! Good luck!

    i'm working at accenture (not consultant, analyst only)
    i dont think they have very high criteria as you said
    maybe that's because u apply for consultant position which require experience rather than phD
