It was well structured and interesting and everyone was friendly and open to questions.
It did feel like because we had gotten to this stage having passed the application, we were valued as competent, pontential employees of EY.
Althought recieving overviews of each of the service lines of EY, there was not much guidance in exploring which would be best for each person but that is a personal choice that would probably require more personal research. During the activities of the programme we did recieve enough guidance to be able to complete everything with some confidence.
As it was only a 2 day course we did not really have time to build skills but going through the case study and preparing two presentations definitely gave valuable insight into the application process as well as the work required. They did also give us advice on how to procede from here with our careers and internships.
Although we did not always have time to ask all questions, there was not too much rushing and we finished at the times that were told.
All the student and the employees were very open and friendly.
We did not have much time to develop skills and for the company to invest in our development.
All the speakers focused on portraying how it is working for the organization rather than their day to day work which was good as it applies for any role.
The company culture and emphasizing their friendly-ness was definitely a focus for all of the speakers.
It gave a good overview of how it is to work in different departments but not much on the actual work involved which would require further research.
It was an option to be reimbursed expenses or be accomodated at a very nice hotel but I did not need to be.
There were very many networking opportunities with people from all service lines.
The speed networking event was a little chaotic and overwhelming, it was difficult to really think of questions you had for the different service lines when they were all straight after each other and so rushed.
Some employees talked about different organizations or groups but not really.
If you are interested in tax and assurance or even other service lines at EY I think it was a great opportunity to learn about the culture.
