Hi, I've worked for 2 of the Big 4 in Hong Kong and Singapore for over 14 yrs. What level would you be looking to get in at ? I might have some suggestions for you if you can tell me this and what your experience is.

hi.. Thanx for your reply. Well I am seeking for entry level as I am almost done with my ACCA. You have a long experience in audit firms, you can provide me with good guidance. Could you guide me which one of the four is most suitable in terms of career and which field to choose. And most importantly how to approach them? As being a foreigner I am bit concerned as I think they prefer local university grads, is it?

Hi Warcraft I think it helps if you can state what kind of job prospects are you looking for.

What are your interests and future goals? Your question is pretty vague and it's hard to give you an answer.

hi Miss Swan,

My main interest is in auditing and aim is to start career in one of the big 4. What I meant by 'field' was that - I came to know about new areas like audit of financial instruments. But I doubt that for an entry level I will have choice. Am I correct? Could you help me with reference in terms of approaching them?

thnx

Thought BIG 4 always look for people doesn't matter which country we're talking about! :?

hmmm.. make sure you know how to make coffee and tea, and photo copies, and count how many PCs there are, and how many fish in the pond :P just kidding.

Just try your best not to ask stupid questions to your client. and if any in doubt, consult your supervisor/manager.

:wink:

Good luck! you either love audit or hate it, and either way hope the experience you'regoing to get in the audit world will be rewarding!
