I enjoyed networking with the students that attended the insight day as well as hearing about existing employees’ experience at the firm so far and why they have chosen to stay there for as long as five years. It is evident that there is a great culture at the firm.
Very useful insight into the company - learnt a lot about the different routes into the firm, and received detailed information about the stages of the application process. Great to hear from current employees about the opportunities available at BDO, as well as some tips to do well in the application process
I really enjoyed the insight day and greatly appreciate all the effort that was made by the Manchester team and Alicja. I travelled from Glasgow for the event and was unsure of what to expect from the day, I now feel much more confident about the recruitment process and feel sure that BDO is the company I want to undertake training with to become a Chartered Accountant.
It is really helpful to make me know what it is like to work in an accountancy firm. And through this talk, I understand what kind of thing I want to do after, what kind of company I want to apply for after. I was offered an internship in BDO China before, but I didnot go as I had exams that month. After this visit, I am so regret for losing that opportunity. If I have a chance, I would apply for BDO again in the future.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience. I particularly enjoyed hearing from the employees at BDO - especially about Forensic Accountancy and the format was good. There was some waiting occasionally after finishing tasks or sessions, time that could have been used more productively. The person leading the insight day was friendly and guidance from her and the employees was very good.
It was really refreshing to hear the staffs passionately presenting their work. There was also engagement between the audience and presenter in a sense there were throwing of questions and answers, making the sessions more fruitful with information. The staffs also took the opportunity during the lunch break to further share their past experiences with the company.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Insight day I attended on Friday 8 February. There was a range of activities throughout the day which made it interesting. My favourite activity of the day was the networking lunch where I got the chance to communicate with one of the trainees. I also enjoyed the presentation from members of staff as they were very informative and the quiz at the end was a great way to finish off the session.
The speakers on the day were from different departments and gave very detailed insights into their day-to day work, the excitement and challenges that come with their role, as well as the support and development that they have been provided with during their time at BDO.
The insight day was enjoyable an extremely satisfying as it showed a little peak of what seems to be an amazing company. the potential for development and growth as well as the great support that is given by the staff already there. I enjoyed it so much I Immediately applied for an internship role with the company.
Very much so! I found the insight day at BDO to be a very useful and enjoyable experience, which allowed me to gain a better understanding of the accountancy sector. The insight day was well-structured and allowed me to develop new skills and meet interesting and engaging people at the firm. Overall, a very enjoyable experience!
I very much enjoyed my insight day at BDO and found it to be a very informative and enjoyable experience. The day was broken up well so it wasn't just endless talking and there were plenty of interactive sessions and networking opportunities. Overall, a very enjoyable day and I would recommend this opportunity to anyone interested in the sector.
