Big 4 Gossip

Hiring question - do you think you get a job at big 4 without a college degree? For example, someone dropped out of college after 2 years and acquired a few certs and a couple of years experience

No, due to the degree requirement on all postings. Even for interns you have to be enrolled in college.

No. Even if you decide to take college and have a degree later, you will need to prepare a good explanation. I rejected a candidate once because the person took too many years to finish undergrad.

Deloitte 2 - Your mindset is disgusting. Especially now that i’m seeing that even after you listed extenuating circumstances, they are still only a “maybe” because they didn’t go the traditional path? I’m assuming you’ve spent your entire life unchecked; no one has ever challenged your warped beliefs. Thank God I didn’t apply to work at Deloitte b/c I could be out of work right now simply because I didn’t graduate at 22. Learn empathy and utilize it. Your life will be forever changed. Peace ✌️

Not in today's world but that is changing. So if you can ask this question in 5 years I'd say Yes I think getting a job at big 4 without a college degree will be more common than not. To help fight against the student debt crisis, major companies are going to begin piloting the idea of hiring candidates who have completed their required accounting courses expected to be hired to avoid waisting 10s of thousands of dollars on basket weaving courses. Attended a meeting and can confirm that this is already being planned and will start over the next two years. Only thing I'm confused about is the 150credit cpa cert. very curious how that will play into this concept

If a few years of experience you mean 15 which helps you bypass the 150 credit rule then no

What is the pay difference by track? Keep hearing that some tracks, like data science and C&D, are paid more, but not sure if there's any data around that.

I have a very chatty group of students this year! Although we’ve only been in school for two days, I can tell it’s going to be a challenge to keep them focused. Does any one have any WG strategies?
