Too old for Accounting graduate jobs


I have been thinking seriously of a career change. I am 30 yrs old and graduates with an Engineering degree [2:1] including an MEng in 2007. Since then I have been working in IT. I have recently been to first round interview with BDO and AC with Mercer. BDO interview seem to have gone really well but I still received a rejection this morning, I am wondering if it is the age thing.
Any similar experiences will be most helpful?


It can’t be, during my undergrad I had two people who were literally in their 40s/50s without exaggeration. Both not from a accounting background

They both did accounting degrees like me and both managed to score graduate jobs with big 4.

Keep your head up!
