If you don’t know by now, employers love students who can do more than do well in their studies. Grades are important but so are all of the extras!
If you are an accounting student looking to get selected into vacation or graduate programs, you have plenty of options. You won’t miss out on what’s on offer if you subscribe to sites such as Grad Connection and Graduate Opportunities for alerts on annual programs. Banks usually open for applications around late February and the Big Four and other organisations in both the public and private sectors open in March/April.
