Professional Development Week 2014: Deloitte
Deloitte’s session as part of ASA’s Professional Development Week took place on 10th April. To kick start the day, attendees were firstly given a brief overview of the company and the culture embraced by all its employees. This was followed by an office tour, showcasing the professional environment at Deloitte. The firsthand experience and exposure to Deloitte’s workspace was highly rewarding for students and gave a valuable insight to Deloitte’s core values and beliefs.
To give further knowledge of working at the firm, a networking session with numerous Deloittians took place next. The employees were easy to approach and enthusiastically answered questions from the student members, making it a very worthwhile experience for attendees who were interested in gaining further insight regarding opportunities at Deloitte.
The day ended with a lengthy and a realistic mock assessment centre. Members were required to work together in groups and collate ideas to improve a business. This was extremely helpful and was the highlight of the jam-packed day. This allowed students to gain experience for the selection process at accounting firms like Deloitte and the feedback was extremely helpful. Overall, it was a fantastic day and time definitely well spent!
