Visit the Macquarie University Career Development Office for access to more information on accountancy and financial careers from this site and others that provide industry career profiles. Also on the site is useful career planning and job application information, resume advice, interview strategies, information on assessment centres and psychometric/aptitude tests, and schedules of workshops provided by the University and large employers.
Of great importance to second last year and final year students is the graduate recruitment section which outlines graduate recruitment programs, the graduate recruitment process, what employers seek and how to market yourself.
