Hi guys, thank you for all your messages.
Basically I have started applying for accounting jobs. It is certainly not too late. I would say get you applications in before February / March. Obviously play it safe and apply early.
I spent ages on an application to Centrica and got rejected after submitting the application! I was really gutted. Every rejection hurts!
But as Rocky says " It’s not about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!"
I have first interviews at: KPMG, PwC and Baker Tilly.
I am still waiting for a few more. But I need to send many more applications out! (I would rather send a few but better quality ones.)
I was rejected from a first interview for tax at BDO. I felt they wanted someone older with more experience. I felt it was a bit ageist! (No wonder there is so much youth unemployment!)
I would be very grateful if you guys could let me know what information you would like and I will try my best to get back to you as soon as possible!
Personally I hope to get KPMG/PwC but I can’t be too picky. Does anyone know any firms offering ACA/ACCA training outside an accounting firm?
I would just like to end with a personal thought: I feel the Big 4 Accounting firms are a lot more fair. - They recruit if you meet their criteria. So it is not like the Apprentice at things such as group exercises!
