I can't believe Autumn is here again, last year's coaching seems like last week for these prestigious graduate placements. We are already in the midst of coaching students for these interviews and, as always, expect to be fully booked out.
Hopefully, those of you applying are giving a lot of thought to your applications. These applications are your key to interview invite. The most important thing is not to miss the deadline!
Here are the deadline dates this year:
KPMG: 5pm Wednesday 19 October 2016 for ROI Universities and Friday 28 October 2016 for NI Universities
PwC: 5pm Wednesday 19 October 2016 for Assurance, Tax and Risk and Monday 17th October for Consulting
Deloitte: 5pm Wednesday 19 October 2016
EY: Thursday 6 October 2016 for Advisory/IT/Data and Cyber Wednesday 19 October 2016 for Assurance, Tax, Transactions and Risk
Don't leave anything to chance, the roles available, although appearing plentiful, are not a dead certainty, you must perform to the best of your abilities in the interview, or risk disappointment. Maybe you have your heart set on one particular firm, please don't make the mistake of putting all your eggs in one basket and only apply to 1 firm, apply to them all and give yourself better odds.
Our coaching is run by Clare Reed, ex Head of Recruitment at Deloitte and Head of Professional Recruitment at KPMG, she still works in recruitment, as an executive search consultant for the Big 4, and knows these firms well. You can trust her to give the best advice and guidance in your answers and her track record over the last 8 years in graduate coaching is very impressive.
To book your coaching go to our Starter Programme page and use the easy to use online booking system.
Best of luck to everyone interviewing this year.
