I am just getting ready to apply to some accountancy firms for roles in Audit. For the last year I have been applying for training contracts at City law firms, but I have had a change of heart after a recent vac scheme. The law isn’t for me.
I was wondering how difficult it is to get to interview at a big 4 firm, providing you meet their minimum academic requirements? I know with law firms you are lucky if you get 1 interview for every 10 applications, is it a similar case here or do they interview more people? Is it less competitive to get interviews for other roles such as Tax and Corporate Finance?
Thanks for helping a noob
