I just heard that my interviews were unsuccessful this year. I am currently on a year out after university and don’t really want to have to wait for another year, it will be 2010 before I could start work now which is too late for me. Are there any other options to get working, perhaps outside of the regular big firms, and still work towards becoming a chartered accountant?
Has anyone else been in this situation before and if so how did you deal with it? I had planned on travelling this year but am now tempted to cancel that to use the money to do a post grad in accountancy next year as my degree is ‘non-relevant’. Would this boost my employability by much or is it the teamwork, organisation qualities that employers look at most?
I am really at a loss here and don’t know what the best course of action is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
