LOL... one day I should do a more detailed write up on what not to do/say in your interview. Here's another pointer for those reading along in detail- if you are going to mention you read the newspaper daily (and the fin, and a list of other publications), make sure you have something decent to say when the interviewer asks for an example of something you've read. Mentioning the budget or the Eurozone crisis without having anything more to add other than a one or two word answer definitely does not leave a good impression.LOOOOL did that i had to crack some stupid joke as soon as i made that mistake to save my backside and divert the interviewers' attention away from that mishap ;/ phew!
Glad it didn't affect the final decision outcome But yeah having made that mistake, do take due care coz it can become really awkward and the interviewers may even take offence (especially at the big 4) lol
CA qualification for 5 years? That is a very conservative estimate (presumably it ensures everyone can reach it?). I've had my qualification for less than half a year and my base salary not including bonus is higher than that- and I'm still with my respective firm from when I was a cadet.I remember an accountant at some info thing back in 2010 told me that you can expect to earn AT LEAST 100k once you have held your CA qualification for 5 years. But that was back in 2010, and we won't be getting our CAs before 2017-18 so gotta take annual pay rises into consideration ..so it's a bit too hard to say what we could be earning as CAs 8-10 years down the track from now :/
Such is life but the reality is that the decision you make now between BAcc and a cadetship won't totally make or break your future. You can always do other things later on. If the cadetship is with a firm you want to work with (as opposed to just accepting because they made you an offer) I'd go for that.Does anyone know anything about BAcc reserves, they said I had a 50-75% chance of receiving an offer, but I'm tempted at this point to just send in my cadet contract, just to secure my position =/
