Mid tier audit firm
 
Hi, need some advice here. I am 3rd year student doing final semester. Am thinking to apply audit job in mid tier audit firms in singapore (RSM BDO GT NEXIA MOORE STEPHENS RT) as my result I don't think I can get job in Big 4. Am from malaysia btw. Had 3 months internship exp at Nexia SSY in malaysia. Is it hard to get job in those mid tier firms?

Just go for the big 4, they do massive recruitment by batches all the time and as far as i can tell, their criteria quite lax as the hr just want to hit tough recruitment targets.

I have a friend with 3rd class honors and another with bachelor pass w/o merit also got in.

No choice then go for the small firms.

Oh iS it? I had actually get the call this morning from kpmg for their internship program cos their audit associate massive recruitment is in August. The person told me is a bit difficult to go in Singapore for intern because of the work pass problem. She will get back to me after this. I guess if I go for internship first I stand a higher chance for their graduate program of audit which is is August? :)

Thanks for your info btw.

Well, I suppose an internship will help in your chances somewhat. But honestly speaking the way they batch recruit every year huge numbers of fresh grads, most of them end up having more than 1 offer from the big 4 anyway. When I left NTU 4 years ago, I had 3 offers from them and I was only 2nd lower honors.

There is this misconception that the big 4 is very prestigious and difficult to get in. The reality is that other than a few specialised management consulting roles, the rest of the entry level associate jobs you really don't need much to get in. In terms stringency in selection, I would rank them even lower than some of the fresh grad hires conducted by local big GLCs.

Hi TS, I'm now working in 1 of the Big4. I think being Malaysian with normal grades still can get in as I have many colleagues at the Associate / Senior Associate level who are Malaysians. AFAIK their studies or any work exp is only average.

Is it through massive graduate programme recruitment? Cos if like this I would have waited to August or September to start.
