Just wondering if there are any Chartered Accountants on this board, I believe there are a few but don't remember who they were. Anyway, just had a few questions. I'm planning to apply to CA firms for September 2007 as an articling student, should have my BBA finished by August 2007.
What do the firms base their hiring on? Is it grades, previous work experience or combinations of the 2?
Should I apply to the large and medium firms only? I've heard if you want to be successful you must try to get into the big 4 (or is it 5). I have checked out the firms listing at http://www.becomea.ca/bca.php?cat=21...p3&chapter=B#j
Thank you for your help.
Ps, I'll probably have more questions depending on if I get a response.
