On the occasion of “Deloitte Vietnam Career Day 2017”, Deloitte Vietnam, in cooperation with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), officially launched the “Breaking the Limit 2017” competition on August 13 in Ho Chi Minh City and August 16 in Hanoi.

The Career Day gathered together more than 1,000 students specializing in economics, finance, auditing, accounting, and law from major national universities.

Organized annually by Deloitte Vietnam and ICAEW Vietnam to replace Deloitte Vietnam’s annual Internship Recruitment Program since 2015, the competition aims at providing professional challenges to final year students specializing in banking and finance, auditing and accounting, law and taxation in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The competition offers valuable prizes worth up to VND1 billion ($44,000) as well as opportunities for students to gain real experience and knowledge to develop themselves.

Specifically, candidates must pass five rounds of the competition, in knowledge, teamwork, soft skills, and interviews.

Those who pass the final round (the interview) will become interns at Deloitte Vietnam in 2017 and 2018 and be awarded an ICAEW scholarship worth over VND7 million ($310) per person. The Top 5 runners up will receive a full ICAEW scholarship, valued at VND18 million ($790) per person while the Top 3 will receive awards in cash and scholarships from Deloitte Vietnam and ICAEW to study for their professional qualifications.

The two champions will be invited to join the ICAEW Regional Business Challenge organized annually in a Southeast Asia country and visit a Deloitte Office in Southeast Asia.

Ms. Tran Thuy Trang, HR Director at Deloitte Vietnam, said: “With a strong commitment to developing the quality of human resources and efforts to bring opportunities to students to practice and work in an international environment with leading global experts, we believe that students will gain useful experience with Deloitte Vietnam, which would be a foundation to develop their future careers.”

Meanwhile, Ms. Dang Thi Mai Trang, Chief Representative of ICAEW Vietnam, said that, through the competition, Deloitte Vietnam and ICAWE hope to bring more learning and development opportunities to students, so that one day they will grow and make a positive contribution to the development of Vietnam’s auditing and accounting sector.
