Advice for Accounting and Finance Graduates in Northern Ireland

We have worked with many graduates and companies in Northern Ireland. We have noticed a few running themes so here is a little advice from us;

Invest in learning new skills 

Industries like the accounting and finance industry are forever changing and developing. It is essential that you stay on top of the key skills that are needed. As a graduate it is important to stand out and impress employers with your bespoke knowledge and skills.


Take control of your career

It is your career not anyone else’s. You know what you want from your career and your level of skills. Do not assume others will possess the drive, ambition and aspirations as you and advocate for yourself. At the same time you should take advice from those who have experience in your area of interest to ensure you are being the best you can be.


Show your interest

Employers want you to show interest in their business. Asking questions is a great way to show the employer that you are interested in their business and helps you become more informed about what they expect from you. Don’t be afraid to be curious!


Make use of the knowledge you have

As a graduate of accounting and finance you will already have an extensive knowledge of the industry. USE IT! As you move further through your career you will develop your skills and knowledge but when you are starting out you must make use of what you have.
