What are the Big 4 looking for?

B5e72ecd93db55642f2cda5bae264e92?s=100&d=identicon

Hi,

My goal is to work for a large professional services firm once I graduate from uni. I'd love to be able to work for a large organisation that offers the opportunity for career development and work overseas. 

What are these companies looking for? How can I improve my chances of being hired?

Thanks!

Hi Abby,

This is a great question. The truth is, many large organisations are looking for well-rounded STARS. These are people who not only have excellent grades, but are also able to communicate well with others and perform well in a ream. 

Firstly, you will want to make sure you maintain good grades - especially in your final year. 

You might want to think about joining a university club that relates to your industry of choice. You'll get a chance to network and it's nice to be able to put on your CV.

Also, many universities offer career expos where employers set up stands to meet prospective graduates - show your face, shake some hands and get some business cards. Send out a personalised email afterwards to people from companies that you are interested in; let them know that you are proactive.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
