For this purpose, the Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance jointly organized a Career Snapshot event with Chartered Accountants Australia & New Zealand. "Whilst the public media has numerous videos and other information of what organisations look for in a graduate accountant, it is invaluable that our students got to learn firsthand directly from those who have undertaken similar pathways", says Professor Philomena Leung, Head of Department.

More than 100 students from the Faculty of Business and Economics attended this important event, which was held on campus on Tuesday 2nd of September.

Students had the opportunity to hear from a panel of young professionals, including speakers from KPMG, Nexia Australia, Nickelodeon, and Optus, about their experiences as Chartered Accountants working in different industries. The speakers also shared their experiences when transitioning from university to the profession and provided valuables tips that may help our students when applying for graduate jobs.

The event was also a great opportunity for students to meet representatives from Macquarie University's Careers Office, and network with a range of employers in order to discover what they are looking for in successful applicants.
