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.
It was only a few hours but during that time everyone was welcoming and pleasant.
The information provided about the application process was very well presented and explained and I know it will be very helpful.
The information helped give me a better idea of the roles within each department which in turn led me to deciding which role I would most enjoy thus, which I would apply for.
The structure of the day was faultless. Time was very well managed. We had enough time to listen to different speakers, find out about the firm and the application process, network and, research and present a topic.
Very relaxed atmosphere for an insight day, everyone was easy to get along with, I enjoyed it.

It was helpful. The core values of the firm were emphasized as were their practical applications in the workplace. One of the trainees also spoke in detail about the various societies that one may partake in or even create.
Furthermore, the great work-life balance was a common element from most of the speakers (dependent on the department).
It affirmed that the business area I want to pursue is the right one for me. However, I was undecided between to sub-areas and it helped me make my decision.

Yes I would.
