About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

Although we had to make it online due to the coronavirus outbreak, I still had a great time getting to know EY and my possible future. The online Discover EY - Women in Consulting programme is such a well-organised insight event and have so many interesting components included. I enjoyed every single part of it.

2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

From the selection process to the final event day, I can always strongly feel that EY welcomes all talents, regardless of their gender, race, or any other social background that one cannot choose at birth. EY encourages diversity in all lines. As an Asian female, I feel like I can easily fit into the friendly working environment.

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

I received much support throughout the day. From the technical support to all those employees who answered my questions, everyone at EY are very helpful to us new joiners. I'm never afraid of asking for help at an event like this. I interact with people in such a comfortable way.

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

In addition to learning about EY, we also had a chance to learn about how to build confidence, which I think will contribute the most to my degree studies and beyond. I strongly echo with the idea “personal brand”. The most efficient way of developing self-confidence is to know exactly who we are and why we are strong.

The Organisation

5. How well structured was the insight?

Very well structured and contains quite a lot of interesting components. I can feel that EY is trying its best to make the special virtual event as close to the physical one as possible. The company is delivering its beliefs to us through every single components and getting us to know the company better.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

A very important reason why I enjoyed the event very much is the people I met (virtually). Everyone, candidates and organisers, is very friendly and helpful. People are always willing to reach out to those who are in need and looking forward to meet new friends. This is exactly how EY's working environment will look like.

EY is always encouraging people to become stronger in every aspect.

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

The insight event gives us a clear view of what kind of talent EY is looking for. From technical abilities to soft abilities, I understand that EY is looking for someone who's firstly good at jobs of course, and at the same time confident, inclusive, hardworking, friendly, helpful, and thinking on a global scale.

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

After attending the insight programme, I'm more than sure that EY is my dream company. I enjoy the working environment, the people there, and most importantly the values they hold. I can feel how EY cares about women and other minority groups, which makes me firmly believe that this will be an excellent place to start my career.

Other Information

11. Were you paid or reimbursed adequately for this experience?

The event was held online due to the coronavirus outbreak so no expenses occurred actually. But the plan was that EY help us book travel and accommodation.

12. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees of the company or firm?

There are tons of opportunities for networking with other student participants and meeting with current employees. We got the chance to hear talks from the employees on topics they are good at. And we value the network with students from all around Europe who were selected by EY. Great networking experience.

15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?

This is definitely a great opportunity to get to know EY and possibly get a fast-track to summer internship. I highly recommend those who are in first year to apply for this event. The selection process might be a little bit cruel, but try your best and everything turns out to be worthwhile.
