Start your career with us

21 November 2016

Ashish joined us as a trainee just after his graduation. Read his testimonial below in which he has incorporated experience of his peers too.

"We have all faced that daunting phase in our lives where we have just recently graduated and left the safe confines of university and are faced with the challenge of finding a suitable job. It is a time of anxiety and concern for every young individual as the decisions one makes at that stage may very well decide our future.

While a job in related field is what everyone looks for, that job should have the potential to turn into a career. It should provide you with opportunities to grow – both professionally and personally, a chance to broaden your horizon and become an outstanding global citizen of the diverse and dynamic world that we currently occupy.

Being my first job, I was quite nervous about working at BDO, and whether I would be able to perform as was expected of me. But with the amazing people that I have met and the tremendous support that I have received from everyone at BDO, I have never felt more confident about facing challenges at work. It's not just me but my peers and seniors before me who have gone through the Associate Trainee Program would agree. This is what they have to say...

My peer from 2015 batch writes about his interview expience, "As I was sitting in the reception, waiting to be called for the interview, all I could think of was that there was no way I was going to get this job having no former experience in the field and being straight out of university. During the interview, where I met with the BDO team, I realised that they were more interested in finding out about me rather than my grades or my studies." 

My seniors from the previous batches of 2012-2014 have this to say, "I have a lot more confidence in myself. I was surprised by how much I could apply in my work which has built my self-esteem".

"I now know what I am capable of doing. I understand the direction I want to head in."

"I didn’t believe that in an engagement team discussion with a partner and a manager that my ideas will be used.​"

At BDO, our ambition is to be a leader for exceptional client service. We are fully aware that this vision can only be achieved through our most important asset - our talent.

Apart from providing fulfilling career and growth opportunities to our existing talent, we have identified that to grow towards the top, we have to focus on our foundation. And our experience tells us that entry-level foundation will go on to become our future leaders who achieve overall vision of the firm.

Ashish and his friends are just a few examples of those who started with us and climbed the career charts soon. Your story could be the next!
