Hi Priyanka, I would certainly highlight the importance of showing a deeper understanding of the role and the wider challenges of the tax consulting practice.

For instance, reading some articles in the press and showing an opinion on this in addition to showing a lot of enthusiasm towards the role. I would also add that you demonstrate the ability and interest in some of the technical aspects of the role and an aptitude to learn. Not to mention the importance of building good client relationships

In addition to Neil's comments, I believe that you can stand out by demonstrating aspects of your life outside of studies/work such as any extra-curricular activities, groups, qualifications etc.

OK, also just wanted to ask whether commercial experience is necessary as well? As most of my work experience is in part-time jobs and volunteering

It is not essential but certainly any research you can conduct in advance of the interview will really help! But this is absolutely not essential for the interview or role as we will provide all the training

Commercial experience within the industry isn't necessary, but if you have some then this may give you a beneficial insight for discussion in the interview. Part-time jobs and volunteering are great and often provide plenty of experiences to discuss during the interview process.

Hi, I agree with Neil and Ben. Commercial experience is not essential - my only other jobs prior to joining Deloitte were part-time. I had a mentoring job at university and I also worked at McDonald's! However, having commercial awareness and taking an interest in the things that are going on in the world of business and finance are definitely useful.
