Training at Big4 or small firm? Plz reply
I have cleared 13 papers of ACCA and i will be attempting the last Paper P5 in June 2009. Though i have no practical experience yet, i am planning to apply for articleship at small audit firms right after the papers so as to gain experience. But everyone is advising me not do that and rather wait for the results and then apply at Big4 audit firms as an ACCA Affiliate. I wish to do CA from ICAP after becoming an ACCA Affiliate.
Another advice i have received is to go to Dubai after the papers and search for an articleship opportunity over there. But then i wont be able to do CA from ICAP.
I am 20 years old.

Should i apply at a small audit firm or should i wait till September to apply at Big4? Can anyone plz guide me as to what should i do at the moment? i would be very grateful.
