lol no? are you from kpmg too? they probably meant the scaq allowance which is 10% now instead of 20% since they finally qualify

i would even say gl accounting is worse than audit since it is the most boring.

Curious how bad is the OT? Like until 9pm? or 12am? 2am?

Trying to break in too but job market seems very rough this year

I graduated FCH from NTU and I cannot stress how unimportant grades are in getting into MAP, retail/ corporate/ investment banking, etc. Those who are able to market themselves well are the people getting these jobs. I know so many people from my uni days who - as objective as I can be - were an absolute terror to work with in group projects and only achieved a second lower or lower and yet are getting prestigious jobs paying $5k+ because they can ******** really well with an ang moh accent.

Don't listen to the crap about studying hard. Sure you should still aim to do well but it's learning to sell yourself well and getting those internships/ competitions that will help you escape this **** hole.

The only correct answer is: When you finish.

We donít have fixed working hours, itís like working on a project. You have a deadline and you work towards it, even if it means working until past midnight or 3am.

Itís not like working in retail when you end work and the shop just closes for the night.

Big 4 ot until 3am also have. usually 9pm is considered quite early during peak period

commercial usually own time own target but those doing month end closing got more stress lah since there is pressure to meet the deadline. everybody waiting for you to close leh

clearly they didnt get FCH because they prioritised other skills which is more important in life. lots of FCH with zero problem solving and critical thinking skills, but good at memorising things.

Audit is a late game career.

Like PA in dota.
