Make your CV stand out from the crowd
If you’re up for a challenge and want to put yourself ahead in your career, take on this challenge.
Now in its third year, the Chartered Accountants Student Challenge invites students to solve a real-life business problem facing a not-for-profit organisation.
This is designed to give you a taste of the varied and interesting issues you will likely encounter in the business world, as well as the opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause.
This year we would like you to examine a real-life business challenge facing The Smith Family. Entries will be judged on how effectively students solve the Challenge on three main criteria – technical knowledge, innovation and presentation.
This year there will be two different Challenges – one designed for first year undergraduate accounting students, and the other for second, third and fourth year students.
You can tackle the task solo or find a partner. Either way simply participating in these Challenges adds practical experience to your CV – and it’s all up from there.
Winners will enjoy money-can’t-buy power lunches with potential employers, travel vouchers and may even jet off on an all expenses paid trip to London.
Please note, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident to enter this competition.
Competition runs from 1 May – 31 August, 2010.
