    What kind of places are you applying to? "Lazy" doesn't generally go well with working full time and still studying in the evening which will be the case almost everywhere

    I am wondering about options like this as well. It's not that I'm lazy but I don't fancy my chances when the competition is so fierce.

    I'm feeling like I will be getting rejections all over the place and I haven't even submitted a single application yet! urrgghh

    Why do you think Big 4 is competitive? They hire thousands of graduates a year and have dozens of offices around the country, they're not really that competitive compared to other grad jobs.

    They are quite competitive, you can't just easily get a job at the big four like with some random accounting firm.
