Why did you choose Deloitte:

Deloitte is a reputable company with a tremendous amount of opportunities. The company promotes a culture of continuous learning and growth for a self-driven individual. It also allows sharing of knowledge amongst its employees. Having a wide range of clients also creates opportunities for travelling in South Africa and around the world. I love winning, so I had to choose the winning team.

Describe a typical day at work:

Open your outlook mailbox and visit your work schedule. Review tasks from yesterday and continue working on it if not complete. Speak to your manager and find out the task ahead. Grab a cup of coffee believe you me that is a perfect way to start your day.

What is your advice to a future aspiring Deloittian:

Be a self-driven individual. Always know when to stand-alone and when to ask for help. Make as many friends as you can, this is your new family so the sooner you get to know them the better. Do not postpone your work until the last day always keep track of your work progress (fail fast). Believe in yourself and never be afraid to come forward if you possess a skill that is required for an engagement. Speak to your peers as well as your seniors, they are always willing to help and share some advice. Always stay up to date on what is going on in industry, do not wait for your manager or coach to tell you to upskill yourself on a particular aspect. Do some research and find out how a particular topic is relevant to your line of work. When in doubt consult with your coach and ask for advice on what is good for the firm. Stay focused, identify your interests and strengths and leverage them towards building a successful career.
