Are you curious about how you could break into a career in consulting with the Big Four despite not being a business student? In this session, you will find out from four NUS alumni on how they did just that!
The "Big Four" - EY, PwC, KPMG and Deloitte - are a huge source of job opportunities, with a high growth trajectory in fields including audit, consulting, deal advisory, tax, law, technology and engineering. If you are looking for a career in professional services, the Big Four will no doubt be your top choice. But being popular also means places are highly competitive. Just like the major banks, the Big Four receive thousands more applications than they have openings for. To stand out, you will need to gain the right experiences and credentials while in university.
Join us and hear from alumni working at EY, PwC, KPMG and Deloitte on their career journeys and how they managed to secure roles in these consulting firms.
In this session, you will learn:
• What are the graduate opportunities open to non-business students?
• What internships do you need to gain the experience and credibility to stand out?
• How can you catch the attention of HR personnel with your resume and land an interview with the Big Four?
• How do you prepare for the multiple rounds of assessments and interviews?
