As I begin my new role as a career blogger at EY, I am grateful for the opportunity to share my journey at EY since September 2021, when I became a consultant within the Transaction, Strategy and Execution (TSE) team at EY-Parthenon Denmark.
In this first post, I will introduce you to my experience with the recruitment process — a grim topic for many bachelor’s and master’s students. Then, you will find out all about the critical phases of the screening process.
I encourage all the last-year students to apply for a fulfilling career at EY — I am confident the effort is worth it.
At EY, we believe that our people are our most valuable asset. Therefore, we remain committed to finding the best candidates for our clients and for our firm. That is why we work hard to provide helpful feedback that enables both the candidate and EY to gain valuable insight into how we can continue to improve our recruiting processes. Applying is relatively straightforward, with plenty of different options to get your CV to EY:
A) Job fairs and university events:
These are held yearly at CBS, ITU and DTU , where EY collects curriculum vitae (CV). You have to approach their stand, introduce yourself, and ask if they would like to see your CV.
B) Corporate website:
EY hires new Graduate Consultants (recently graduated students) every year. The application process for this program happens between October and November, and applications are submitted online. When the application period opens, EY’s dedicated corporate website shows all available job offers.
At a graduate level, the process is fairly simple. First, you must visit the EY website and search for the position you are interested in, ideally, positions with a description that fits your profile the most. Then, in the link to apply, you must attach your CV and grade transcripts.
I met EY at a job fair hosted by DTU, where they came to talk with students about their organization and career opportunities. Toward the end of October 2021, I applied directly to the Transaction, Strategy and Execution (TSE) Graduate Consultant job opening on their website.
