    I'm a second year and deciding where to go for a summer internship if I get one.
    Ideally on a scheme that gets me an ICAEW qualification (ACA).

    Assume I can be in the top 10% or 5% of my cohort, which company and field of work would get me the highest salary the fastest?
    I would prefer audit/corporate finance/tax rather than consulting/tech/legal.

    I did think of IBs but I know people go from accounting to IB without major obstruction and it's harder to go the other way round, plus the job security from ACA is nice.

    +Any other career choices that people generally aren't aware of? I'm open to options.

    I did talk to some Pwc guys earlier today!
    Senior manager+ salaries seem pretty good.
