    Alumni offer insider tips to ace Big Four interviews

    HKBU School of Business Alumni Association (HKBUSBAA) organised the “Gateway to Big Four” seminar, providing students with insider tips from alumni who are current or former employees at the four accounting giants. Ten school alumni from the Big Four accounting firms, namely PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Ernst & Young, and KPMG, came to share with over 100 highly motivated students on Sunday, 17 September 2017.

    Apart from introducing the hiring process of each firm, alumni shared their first-hand experience from preparing for their job application to landing on their dream career eventually. They also shared how typical day-to-day Big Four life is like, and how they manage to achieve work-life balance in the hectic work life.

    The seminar is part one of the yearly signature event “Gateway to Big Four” series, aiming to introduce the accounting industry to students who aspire to develop their career in the accounting and professional service sector. Part two will be a rigorous mock interview session to be held in October, enabling students to rehearse and experience the tension while receive fruitful comments from alumni for improvement, equipping them with competitive edge during their interviews.
