BDO is looking for four extra cadets (two in audit, two in private clients),since there's more client work.

They're looking for people who finished HSC so I'm sorry first years ;/

Good chance if you missed out,and a good firm (as I see it so far)
I strongly recommend people apply if they missed out previously, our were not sure what they wanted to do last year when still at high school.

RSM Bird Cameron also advertised a cadetship today, so even more options! :D

Hey, what are good questions to ask the interviewer at the end regarding an accounting cadetship?
Ask questions that you are genuinely interested in finding out instead of asking for the sake of asking just to "seem" interested or to sound smart. So just write up a few questions you would like to know the answer to:)

Did you have lots of work experience in the past prior to getting the cadetship?

... I have no job references, but I have volunteer work ...

I did retail work for 6 months, tutored and baby sat. My resume was built up in all type of areas - work experience, academic achievements, leadership, extra curricular). So try build up your CV to showcase the all rounder person you are.

Firms are not looking for those that just have "brains". Having a job/extra curricular on your CV shows that you are committed, you have a good work ethic, you're able to handle greater responsibilities and time manage effectively. All these factors are noted by HR's because it gives them an idea of what type of employee you are since the factors are transferable to your cadetship experience.

I didn't have work experience other than a week in year 10... but then applications nowadays are much more competitive.

Whilst I don't know what their process is, I can only imagine that they've broken down the recruitment process into very small discrete parts (e.g. application form, telephone interview, online assessment, group assessment, partner interview, etc). Doubt it'll be that different to the other big firms.

But that work experience.....was...quite relevant haha.
All it did was say that I was keen on the industry. Didn't mean much and now that I sit on the other side of the table, I wouldn't give it a lot of weight. Heck, I'm lucky I didn't get asked about what I actually did/learnt... that might've come off a bit less impressive!
