I’m a new grad working in Deloitte’s corporate finance division having graduated from Nottingham last year. Just a quick note to anyone serious about applying for a graduate position at Deloitte this year, in any service line; If you are looking for a ‘contact’ to put down on your application form then you can use me, I’m not sure whether it will increase your chances, but I could probably offer you some helpful advice during the application process, and if I have the time I might be able to quickly read through your application… If this is of interest of you then drop me a pm,
Oh everyone might also like to know that Deloitte run a scheme for its employees and those holding offers, its called talent scout - £1,500 for every successful referral, putting someone's name down on your application form won't increase your chances, but it might boost someone's pay packet.
I continue to offer application advice to those who need it, and I won't even mention putting my name on your application form. Unless you offer to of course :P
Admitedly thats true about the fee, but saying it won't help your application is just one opinion. An applicant doesn't have anything to lose by doing so, and arguably all to gain- and in my experience, having a refferal on the application form did slightly increase my chances of obtaining an offer as the advice/information I recieved gave me that something extra to talk about during the interview process. I also knew a tiny bit about the person interviewing me. Being also one of the very few grads in corporate finance I can also provide more specific advice on my service line- (priceless!)
haha, there's a fair few Deloitte people here...fubu,are you in any of the London offices?
Yeah, its nice to give out the help I would have loved when I applied.
There's also the tiny detail that they ask a lot about your links to the person who put you down before they pay, and if they smell a fish, they won't pay. Could be a bit of a nasty surprise, that..
