Hi Jess. For me, Deloitte seemed more personal than the other firms in the Big Four - an impression that I formed from graduate events and speaking to friends in the industry.

The Partner interview was also a stand-out experience for me. I was asked a lot of tough questions and needed to demonstrate commercial awareness, analytical skills and the ability to communicate, but the interview was a pleasant experience (as far as interviews go!) and was certainly better than interviews at other firms.

Hi Jess, what made Deloitte stand out for me compared to the rest of the Big 4 was the attitude of all employees that I met and talked to. I saw this as a friendly and collaborative environment and now as an insider I can say my opinion has not changed.

Also, I was drawn by the fact that Deloitte offers a large variety of areas to specialise in and the fact that even before joining I could see the opportunity of not just having a job in Deloitte but building a long term career here.

I appreciated how friendly graduate recruitment were here. I was studying abroad as part of my degree and Deloitte helped me schedule an interview before going abroad, which was very helpful.

Thank you all for your responses. From what I have seen it seems like employees and interns, (even prospective interns!) are encouraged to ask questions, and that is something appeals to me. Do you feel there is a good support network in place for graduates and svs students?

Yes there is a massive network of who to ask. Because everyone is so open I would happily ask anyone no matter what position they are within my team, a question. I tend to ask a lot of Qs when working on a project just because I don't want to do the wrong thing. This seems to go down very well.

Hi Jess, there is a very good support network. When you join SVS/ graduate scheme, you will have a buddy who was in the same position as yourself. This really helps as you can ask them any questions you want.

5 graduates joined in my sub department (Resilience) in September, and we are constantly asking each other questions. In fact they've been helping me with some of the Qs on this chat!

In your first year its emphasised that you can't really make any mistakes as its all a learning process so you are really encouraged to ask questions if you don't understand anything. Everyone understands that this may be your first job and a lot of it is new.

Hi Jess - within you have a great support network. As Zohair mentioned, we're all given a buddy when we arrive, we're also assigned an appraiser - who helps guide your career and ensures that you're performing as well as you can and want to - and you're also encouraged to choose a mentor.
