  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • Participated in talks concerning external audit and personal work ethic. Finally completed a group project after a couple of days of work which improved my understanding of BDO and the services it provides. Furthermore, at the end of the week, I was interviewed and queried about my desired future with BDO.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • The format of the week drastically improved my networking abilities. The online nature of the week served as a baptism of fire and organised one-on-one events, such as the speed networking, and the group project, which also helped me with teamwork skills such as communication and conflict resolution, were really useful in preparing me for work in the sector.
