Rachel, Consultant

“The ACG provides consultants and senior consultants the opportunity to easily work across competencies and industries within Advisory while also forming a strong internal network where learnings and information is readily shared.

The work I predominately do focuses on working with senior leadership across the Government, not for profit and private sector to assist companies in defining their future direction and operations. Throughout my time at EY the exposure I have had to senior leaders and the broad understanding of a large range of businesses I have gained, has given me an unmatchable start to my career.

EY - PriyalPriyal
Consultant, IT Advisory

“I’m Priyal and I joined EY as a graduate last year. I work within Advisory as part of the IT Advisory team and my role is to help with assessing businesses and their IT systems to identify how they can make their business more efficient. We work with lots of different clients in different sectors.


I graduated with a Bachelors of Technology (Honours) in Information Technology. My degree gave me a wide range of skills in areas of Information Systems and Programming. In my last year at university I worked on a project with a health business to work on automating their reporting system. This gave me technical knowledge that I use in my business intelligence projects at EY.

I realised the business intelligence and business transformation side of my degree attracted me more compared to the programming side. However, one thing that I knew was that I wanted was to be in a role that integrates my passion for IT with the ability to interact with clients to help them on their road to success.

Why EY?

One of the Advisory Managers was speaking at a presentation about how different each day is, the range of projects EY was working on within business intelligence and business transformation and also the broad range of clients that they got to work with. It really clicked with me and I thought EY would give me an opportunity to work on a range of projects in areas which I was interested in and I would also be able to combine my IT skills and my interpersonal skills.

Career highlight

One of my recent projects involved attended various meetings with key individuals from a client to understand their business. For example, how they recover their systems in an event of a disaster like the policies and contracts they have in place, security, IT Architecture, their Disaster Recovery Plan. During the week, I was also going through documents to identity issues and I discussed these with my manager and came up with recommendations to the client.

My advice to students

Don’t be afraid if you haven’t decided what you want to do yet, take every opportunity that you come across. This is how you will figure out what you like and don’t and help you choose your career path. Most importantly, work hard no matter what you’re doing.”

EY - NickNick
Consultant, Performance Improvement

I’m Nick and I work in the Performance Improvement team as part of the Advisory team. My role differs from day to day, depending on the type of engagement I’m working on. Because of the variety of clients and work we do, I’m always learning something new and always building on my skills. Being able to apply the theory and knowledge I have developed during my studies into a practical setting has been amazing.


I studied a Bachelor of Commerce in Information Systems and Human Resource Management and I’m completing my Honours in Information Systems. My degree really prepared me for my job as I use analytical thinking and my knowledge on business processes on a daily basis.

I had taken a few Information Systems papers and really enjoyed them as I found it interesting learning about the changing environment of the IT world. I enjoyed interacting with people on a daily basis and had a lot to do with student societies and clubs while I was studying, so being a part of a team working together towards a common goal was what I wanted to be.

Why Advisory and EY?

At first I was thinking about going down the IT path and looking at more technical jobs, but what I realised I really wanted was a job where I would be always on the go, learning new things, and where the work was different each day. At EY I’m working with some really knowledgeable people with exciting stories to share.

When I was interviewed during the recruitment process, my decision to choose EY was really cemented when the people couldn’t talk high enough about the culture and social side of the organisation. I’m a social person and love interacting with people, getting involved in events, so it really spoke to me.

Career highlight

One of my career highlights to date was being involved in assessing the client’s HR, payroll and procurement processes to ensure there is no fraudulent activity happening behind the scenes, and to ensure that their controls and risk mitigation activities are designed and operating effectively.

My advice to students

The main piece of advice that I can give someone studying Information Systems or an IT-related degree is to think outside the box. You don’t have to be a programmer, a business analyst or a database administrator if that’s not what excites you. Think about how the knowledge you have acquired during your studies can be applied into different situations, and also how your thought process can be applied to different areas. “Build up your toolkit, find ways to differentiate yourself from the pack” is one great piece of advice a Senior Manager gave me.

One of the skills that I have found most useful is being able to talk and communicate with people from a variety of different backgrounds and walks of life. Whether it is a fellow graduate, or the Chief Operating Officer of an organisation, you have to be able to tailor how you talk and present yourself for a large amount of different social settings.

EY - Zoya ImranZoya
Melbourne, 2015 attendee

Zoya, from Monash University, says she will value her experience at the EY International Intern Leadership Conference for the rest of her life.

What was it like hearing directly from EY’s Chairman and CEO, Mark Weinberger?
I never thought I would have the opportunity to chat with EY’s Global CEO and Chairman! I was blown away by Mark’s humility and charisma as a leader. He’s so down to earth. His speech showed his passion about EY’s vision and his concern for each and every individual at EY. He said we shouldn’t forget where we came from and who helped us get there. This is something I want to keep in mind for my own career path. I was amazed that Mark stayed and allowed interns to chat to him and take photos despite it being his birthday that day!

What was the highlight of IILC?
I’m very excited about all of the friends I have made from all corners of the world. It was invaluable for me to gain insight from EY people of completely different backgrounds, striving towards common goals. I was able to network with interns from 25 different countries as well as EY people and leaders from around the globe. I will cherish these networks long into the future.

What did you learn?
I learnt that you can be successful, no matter what your background or where you’ve come from. It’s up to you to create your own opportunities in life, although EY has the perfect support system for you to achieve all your goals.

I also learnt that EY people live out the organisation’s values. All of the global leaders had one thing in common: gratitude towards the positive culture at EY in shaping their successful careers. This really stood out to me.

EY - Jefferson WongJefferson
Sydney, 2015 attendee

What surprised you about the conference?
I was surprised at the level of engagement shown by senior leaders of EY from all around the world – being present and engaging in conversation with the Global Interns from Day One, which I thought was a really great opportunity for us.

What was it like hearing from EY’s senior executives?
It was amazing to listen to our senior EY leaders talk about their experience, the organisation, and in building a better working world. To be able to sit there and actively listen in their sessions was very inspiring and motivating – and better aligned me to the EY purpose.

What did you learn from them?
The importance of asking better questions and receiving better answers to better create high performing teams and push the organisation in the right direction. I learned that I am the ‘CEO of my own career’ and about the importance of doing what you love, balancing your work-life commitments and embracing change.

What were the highlights of IILC?
Meeting the global interns for the first time, talking to Recruitment Leaders from EMEIA and the US, Universal Studios, and sessions held by inspiring individuals, such as our global Chairman and CEO Mark Weinberger. I also really enjoyed networking with interns from around the world. The entire conference was one giant networking bubble. I shared experiences with 90 interns from 24 different countries.
