In their bid to attract the best of young and talented minds, leading multinational and locally-based companies regularly conduct on-campus recruitment activities at UOWD. These activities are organised by the Career Development Services unit of the Student Services Department at UOWD.
Recently, Deloitte Touche, an international financial advisory, audit, tax & consulting company conducted on-campus interviews. Deloitte is internationally recognised as one of the big four accounting firms worldwide. Amongst the students short-listed for the on-campus interviews were twenty-four (24) undergraduate students in their final semester in Business and Commerce degrees who are seeking a career in consulting, audit, financial advisory, corporate finance or taxation.
The interview followed closely on the heels of the UOWD Career Fair 2007 held on March 1.
As Jennifer Telfer, HR Leader at Deloitte verifies, UOWD students currently make up 50% of Deloittes annual graduate intake an achievement that UOWDs College of Business is extremely proud of. Dr. Lejla Vrazalic, Chair of the College lauded the efforts of the Career Development Services unit in providing valuable opportunities to graduates in launching their professional careers. Our graduates add to the large network of over 2000 successfully employed alumni and future business leaders in local and international companies.
