About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

It was really informative and I had a really good time throughout the event. Under the current circumstances, I appreciate how EY made the effort to organise a virtual event instead of cancelling it like some other companies. It was very well-paced and interactive throughout, and I definitely learnt a lot.

It helped me understand the steps I should take and the necessary skills I should develop in order to boost my future career prospects, as well as the opportunities available to us which I can take. There was also a heavy emphasis on self-development, which was super motivating and helpful.

5. How well structured was the insight?

It was really well structured, with numerous informative sessions throughout the programme which helped me gain valuable insight into the company. It was also very well-paced, with breaks in between so that it wouldn't be as tiring. The whole event lasted around 6.5 hours, but it felt like time flew by.

The mood throughout the whole event was light-hearted and easy-going, and I could definitely tell that everyone had a good time. The organisers were super friendly and made everyone feel at ease in speaking out and asking questions. It gave the impression that the company was very welcoming and inclusive.

7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

There were several sessions focused mainly on our self-development, which consisted of helpful advice as well as steps we can take to improve it. Hearing it first-hand from influential women within the company was definitely a plus.

We met with a range of employees working in different locations with very different roles.

13. How were the networking/ social event opportunities?

We weren't given any opportunities to network, given the limitations of a virtual event and time constraints. However, the panel and speakers made sure to leave their LinkedIn and contact details so that we could connect with them with any questions or information if we wanted, which I really appreciate.

14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?

Yes, there wasn't a big emphasis on this but we were given the chance to ask anything we wanted to know of these opportunities.
