REHANA LALJEE (Cycle 1) “Interactive. Confidence. Network building”

Now: About to start a job at Deloitte within Audit

“I was very satisfied with my mentor as she was always willing to help and support me especially when I was applying to Deloitte. She even offered me to shadow her on one of her clients. I met her 4 to 5 times during the scheme but exchanged emails constantly. I think the programme was excellent as it allowed me to expand my network but most of the support was from my mentor herself. I initially applied as I had an interest in Deloitte, having studied Accounting & Finance at University. I applied to the Industrial placement scheme but withdrew my application at the last stage as I got an offer from another company.

In a way, I enjoyed that there was not much structure to the programme as this gave me more leeway to discuss different topics with my mentor. The scheme also helped me gain links within Deloitte and my mentor was more than happy to read through my application – she was always there for support whether it be Deloitte related or not.

I think I gained transferrable skills, notably the ability to communicate with people in more senior positions than myself. It also helped improved my business and professional written and verbal communication as I was constantly interacting with my mentor. After taking the programme, I was a lot more proactive about my career and where I wanted to be. I also had a greater understanding of the accounting world, and had established a network that helped me get one foot in the door. I was able to have an insight into Deloitte which other applicants will not have. It definitely was a stepping stone to where I am today and I am very grateful to have been a part of the programme.”
