  • Attend events organised by your university or by societies to ensure knowledge of BDO and their opportunities are spread far and wide across campus, thus increasing brand awareness.    
  • Utilise social media to drive engagement to BDO’s Instagram page, including but not limited to hosting an Instagram takeover on their @lifeatbdo Instagram page and creating engaging video content to headhunt ideal candidates.  

Most importantly, you will receive regular support and feedback every step of the way and will work closely with one of BDO’s Early Careers Advisors throughout the season.  

Why should you apply?
