    How useful is completing a summer internship within audit at the big4? Will this give me increased chances of securing an off-cycle internship in IBD/ER?

    It seems that current summer positions are very competitive. Despite being at a target and passing tests, I just can't seem to get to the interview stage.

    Last question is, does deals and advisory @ big4 have a separate opening date? It seems that most aren't open, but audit is.


    first of all, it sounds like you're doing the right things so just keep your head up, assume you'll get an interview and prep for them accordingly. banks are looking to be very slow this year ngl, my friends and I haven't really heard back from anyone yet... and its only early Oct, the process goes up to Dec/Jan i believe.

    about the audit thing, any experience is good experience in my book so sure apply to audit and see what happens. although, it might be kinda too late as i have been put on hold with KPMG for a placement, but don't let this hinder you
