me?

Last yr completed ACCA exams in June, prior to ACCA I already have a Degree in Info Systems (UOL)..

experience? --> all non-accounting related..

since last year graduated from ACCA examinations waited for Big 4.. den in the end no reply, so this year onwards start taking temp jobs to feed myself.. LOL

I rem someone mentioned age is a matter..i think i kena the age problem --> i am 29 this year liao.

29 y.o apply to audit associate or senior associate?
if AA, you still want to pursue 2.5k/mth salary?
better go sales, the rewards are higher

you finished your UOL BSc ISM at 25/26 and then continue ACCA the next 2.5 years ? Did you do your ACCA part time or what.

Associate 1/G2: $2,700 (for graduates)
Associate 2/G1: $3,100 and above (depending on your performance rating)
Senior 1: $4,000 and above (depending on your performance rating)

KPMG, add $200 to $300 (and less 1-day unpaid leave)
Such a big jump between A2 (yr2) and S1 (yr3)???

am i correct to say you are studying full time but holding a part time job (on and off work)?

I guess big4 intake for this year is full.Anyway, based on the hiring trend of my dept, people who joined at late 20s age would usually have few years under belt at small/mid sized firms and got downgraded as fresh grads. but there do have some exceptions whom are hired through connection.

maybe you could try asking friends who worked long enough in big4 to help to get you in.
