I was wondering the exact the same thing and would love an answer!Just curious, can you apply for scholarships if you have a cadetship?
hello!! not meaning to intrude in the discussion, but just to clarify... it is possible to have both (and yes, it is unlikely you will find a scholarship that enables you to study part-time).I was wondering the exact the same thing and would love an answer!
So far I don't see why not, however you would have to find a scholarship that allows you to study part time. I know most if not all of the high achievers scholarships etc require full time study over the course of your degree, effectively meaning you cannot have both.
Pretty much reiterating what everyone else already said, but depends on the terms of the scholarship/cadetship.Just curious, can you apply for scholarships if you have a cadetship?
Thanks man, i really appreciate it.Either way I don't think you can go wrong, I myself had the usual retail experience (3 years) when applying for cadetships and was successful, talking to others it was clear not everyone had even had a part time job so its not a deciding factor but rather an element which you could use in interviews etc.
Relevant work experience, paired with volunteering i'm sure would be equal to any retail experience others may have. A wide variety of extra curricular activities, leadership roles and a strong academic base is enough to get you to the early stages of receiving an offer, the important part comes later in regards to how you handle yourself in the group task situations as well as your ability to present well in an interview and throughout your interaction with the firms.
I hope this helps
So am i right by saying extra curricular's would be more important then part time work experience for achieve a cadetship at a Big 4?For what it's worth, work experience (both relevant and non-relevant) are less of a deciding factor for cadetship recruitment. People understand you guys are still in high school and may not have had the opportunity or chance to work yet.
I'd never say one is more important than the other but rather, the value from either EC or work exp is being able to demonstrate some skills you have learnt or behaviours you exhibit which are relevant to the position you are applying for.So am i right by saying extra curricular's would be more important then part time work experience for achieve a cadetship at a Big 4?
