Day one will be one of the most important days in your career.
Day one of your professional life defines the start of an important journey. The first step is deciding where to launch your career. Starting with the information on this site, we’ll help you picture what life at EY might be like.
Throughout the interview and recruitment process, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to discuss your aims and ambitions, and learn about the role you can play in our organization. We’ll be clear about what we’re looking for and will answer your questions as fully as possible, so we can both decide if we’re right for each other.
We run a fair and objective recruitment process that reflects our values. The tabs on this page offer more information to help you through our application and recruitment process.
Diverse backgrounds and skills — but similar values
People with integrity
We want people with a clear sense of personal and professional accountability, who exercise sound judgment and common sense and build relationships based on doing the right thing.
People who excel
We want high academic achievers — those who can think and work analytically, communicate clearly and demonstrate leadership through their extra-curricular activities and community involvement.
People who demonstrate respect
We look for people who recognize the value of different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. By respecting these differences, we enrich our perspectives and enhance the services we provide to our clients.
People who are good at working in teams
We look for evidence that you are good at listening, learning, sharing, developing and working with others, including those who are different from you.
People with energy, enthusiasm and the courage to lead
We want you to be passionate and excited about the opportunities at EY and what your future holds.
People who thrive on challenge
We want those who show flexibility, adapt quickly to new situations, and prioritize effectively.
People who meet our technical requirements
The students we tend to hire have a strong GPA with degrees in accounting, economics, finance, information systems, computer science, management information systems or a related field of study. We also look for students who are willing and eventually able to pursue applicable professional development and certification(s) and who can travel, as necessary, to serve clients.
