About the book:

Bean counters. Ebenezer Scrooge. Mention accounting, and until recently these would be the images people typically conjured. Who knew that the accounting industry could be the source of so much intrigue, that the public would open the newspaper each morning to eagerly read about the inner workings of accounting firms?

Of course, were referring to the scandals that have rocked the accounting world and contributed to the greatest undermining of trust in corporations and the markets in recent memory. And, yet, despite the scandals, now is not a bad time to be looking for an entry-level job in the Big Four. Clients need accountants in bad times as well as good, and Big Four firms always need bodies to do the lower-level scut work; in return, employees get a wealth of exposure to accounting issues, as well as a Big Four name on their resume, which will help them in a variety of business careers. That said, check out this brand new guide, which focuses on opportunities among the Big Four.

You will learn:

  • How Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Ernst & Young, KPMG, and PricewaterhouseCoopers have survived the demise of Arthur Andersen
  • Who of the Big Four now ranks number one
  • What other smaller players line up behind the Big Four
  • What the latest trends in the industry are, especially in the aftermath of the Enron scandal
  • What it's like to be a staff or senior audit accountant as well as a staff tax accountant
  • What the hours and the compensation are like
  • How to impress your interviewers
  • More!
