I've been seeing a couple of posts where people are saying that the Big 4 strategy branches aren't hiring full-time until next year - is this true for interns as well? Would just like to confirm thanks :)

PS - curious about Asia's recruiting cycle more specifically

For such specific questions, ideally reach out to the relevant recruiters and ask them directly about open positions, application,deadlines, etc.

Hi,

I suggest that you should reach out to local recruiters via LinkedIn and ask them directly. That’s the best way!

I have seen people being invited for the interviews in Asia.

Good luck,

Anton

Hi Anton, so I've started doing this for Strategy& and Accenture. However, for some reason I can't find any local recruiters from EYP listed on LinkedIn (most of them are associates) - any advice moving forward? I'm worried I'm going to miss the deadline for submission and I'm pretty stuck. I've reached out to the email contact EYP provided on their website, but of course getting replies from general emails may take long. Local meaning the Singaporean office as this is one of my target locations.

Hi there,

I'm actually not positive regarding Big 4 strategy internships in Asia (very specific!). However, I highly recommend you use this as an opportunity to network!

Reach out to HR and people on LinkedIn. Tell them you interested in their journey and looking to intern - would just like to hear more about the company.

On these calls you can find out what programs are available :)

Good luck!

Dear A,

What you can do - to ask HR and to find insiders from that company and ask them about the real situation.

Wish you all the best!
