I am a 2008 graduate from City University, London. I graduated with a 1st class with hons in Mathematics with Finance and Economics. I was a student Ambassodor at University and a member of the ladies football club. I have had no real professional experience but have held part time jobs in the leisure and retail sector, both at supervisory level. I am currently working as an International Merchandising Assistant for a well known high street firm.
With this kind of background do I have any realistic chance of trying to secure a place with a top 10 audit firm in the next recuitment round? I can’t lie and say I have always wanted to be an accountant or go into audit but I really am passionate about obtaining a professional qualification like the ACA and learning about as many industries as possible which I think Audit work will give me.
Any opinions/advice or personal experiences will be appreciated.
