"On graduation" or "On graduating"

I normally feel that my grammar is good, however, could someone confirm that the below is correct?

"My goal is to work in consultancy on graduation."

Thanks in advance!

    I would use "graduating" but I wouldn't use "on", I would use "upon". I would also restructure the sentence by putting "Upon graduating" first. The way that you've built the sentence is awkward and places the emphasis on graduating rather than on your goal.

    "Upon graduating, my goal is to work in consultancy"
