Well this is my first post and I’m not too sure how to ask this without offending someone but here goes! I am lucky enough to have been offered contracts with 3 companies to study accounting (ACA in two CIMA in the other). I’m just wondering what the policies on accepting multiple offers are?
Before the uproar begins this is my reasoning: There is an economic downturn and a few of my graduate friends were made redundant within a few months of starting and some have had offers retracted (a friend deferred his contract to work with Lehman brothers and returned to no job!). I am a bit worried of selecting a company and ending up with nothing come 2009 because the have realised they can’t afford me!
I have offers from a small firm (ACA), Baker Tilly-mid-tier (ACA) and the Co-operative (CIMA). Friends have mentioned the Co-operative is more stable (less risk of redundancy etc) but since applying I am worried that I’ll end up with an inferior qualification if I study CIMA.
Any thoughts/advice (No insults or rants PLEASE!) would be much appreciated
