Meet Olivia Robertson, BDO's Audit Graduate
Meet BDO Auckland at the 2020 CDES Business and Law Expo!
Did your career plans change as you studied?
Initially I did not know what I wanted to major in but once I had done accounting I chose that as my major and knew I wanted to have a career in the financial industry, it was during my degree that I decided I wanted to work in a professional services firm and take the accounting path.
Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years time?
I hope to have completed my chartered accountancy and remain working within a professional services firm.
How valuable was your internship OR work experience for you as a student? How did this help you fine-tune where you wanted to head?
I had multiple jobs throughout my university degree which weren’t accounting base but set me up to learn about different industries. I personally didn’t feel behind other graduates at my firm having not done an internship but believe it would have been beneficial experience.
