Default Totally clueless and lost, please advise me

Hi guys,

I am graduating with an accountancy degree from NTU with second upper honours. I don't know what are my options... my CV is not impressive with only 1 6 months internship at a tech company as a finance intern and also an audit internship in one of the big 4.

I think my resume couldn't qualify for any banks and I am lost on what to apply or what are my options available.

Can I even qualify for any management programs?

Can anyone advise me please?

I see majority of my peers have already gotten full time job offers but I am still clueless.

You took an accounting degree, had internships at both a tech company and a audit firm but want to work in a bank upon graduation???!
Dude you are all over the place man. Looks to me you dont even have any passion for anything nor know what you want to do in life. Better set your goals correctly and work towards them and specialise in something. For a start you can link back with those two companies which you interned at and secure a full time job.

Why can't qualify for banks? Your CV is not that bad

Hey! Please just apply for those management programs and banks. Leave the question of whether you are qualitified or not up to the interviewers. Don't sell yourself short, and don't be the first hurdle to your own career. In other words, don't be the first one to say 'No' to yourself (:

It is impressive that you have a second uppers in an accountancy degree from NTU. You also have 2 internships, with experience in both finance in a tech company and audit in a big 4, which is great! Now, you just have to find a way to sell your skills in the context of finance in banks. Find out why you want to work in the finance positions in banks, and find answers to bridge your current skill set to those positions. Feel free to talk to recruiters on linkedin to find more information about the jobs and their responsibilties - this allows you to find answers to the abovementioned question, and shows initiative on your part!

Not necessary to work in a bank. Or in accountancy. Ask yourself honestly what area of work you are interested in - and then go pursue that area. Don't get sidetracked by other people in terms of your goals.

Most job applications to the good companies have already closed, offers are already out.
Where is TS going to go even if he figures out what he wants to do?
