    Pretty much a day to day run through of everyday for a month, you have to write 4 emails and 2 reports.

    Of-course you need to prioritise but the hardest part is the sheer amount of information you have to understand to know what to answer first/who takes priority.

    There was like 5 pages of pure text that we had to cover within the 45 minutes and the reports were both limited to 300 words.
    Ah..thank you for your insight. Best of luck with your job application!

    I know it's not relevant, but how comes PKF still exists after merging with BDO?

    their ranking seems a little odd.

    By on hold do you mean you're waiting for the webinar invite?
    I've been told I've passed at the testing stage, but will get told if I progress to a telephone interview after they've reviewed applications. I called up asking why I hadn't been invited to a webinar when other Transaction candidates had, and all they gave was a generic "we are busy" response and said they'd look to inform me of an outcome soon...

    I was told to wait for a link to the webinar, and that I'd receive it within two weeks, but i still haven't received anything!
