You've made some assumptions there about what my experience is based on - it much wider than you have stated, but yes we clearly just have different views on it.(Original post by M1011)
I had extra curriculars which covered the necessary competencies. I was one of many.
I'm not arguing with you that for a big 4 accountancy position that work experience holds more weight than your degree subject - not at all. But you can't project the big 4 mass recruitment process on to the entire industry, in the majority of accountancy positions that technical knowledge, exemptions and additional billable days are going to count for more than an unrelated internship that would frankly raise questions about the candidates dedication to the profession.
Anyway, I think we've both said our piece.
