I am in the process of applying to corporate and indirect tax graduate schemes at a variety of firms including the big 4. However, from one assessment centre interview that I failed, I really struggled to answer a few points properly which I think let me down. If people could give me some input it would be really appreciated!
I don’t come from a business background and am really struggling at the moment on a few points:
- What were your strongest justifications for studying tax? mine are very simple including it is value added, intellectually challenging etc and perhaps not good enough (from a failed experience with Deloitte)
- What are the challenges facing the accounting industry and the big 4?
- What are the challenges facing corporate and indirect tax at the moment? this one in particular has me completely baffled!
I have tried and tried to find suitable answers to these but am REALLY struggling. Could anyone help me please?
Once again thanks very much for the help and best of luck in all your applications!
