Book of Secrets: Big 4 Accounting Firms Hiring Guide Secret Weapon Used by Thousands of Candidates to Get Hired with the Big 4 Accounting Firms
My Story with Big 4 Accounting Firms
It was early April in my Junior year of college and I was having a bad day. I had forgotten to save a paper Id been working on and had watched helplessly as two hours of work vanished when my computer froze. There was no time to redo it because I was also running late for my part-time campus job. This assignment was just not going to get done.
I ran quickly down the front steps of my college apartment, nearly falling on the invisible ice that lingered despite the shining sun. As I glanced up the steps to look at the ice something caught my eye: the mailbox was propped open. There was a large brown envelope inside and the lid wouldn't shut.
I ran back up the steps and removed the envelope. When I saw the return address my heart skipped a beat:
I tore it open and read the words that would, literally, change my life forever:
Congratulations! We are pleased to offer you a summer internship position.
One Week Later:
My old Chevy Cavalier pulls into the cobblestone driveway of the most exclusive country club in town. Wearing my best (and only) suit, Im arriving at a reception for students who have been offered internships and full-time positions. I park my car in between two BMWs and walk inside.
The dimly lit cocktail hour oozes class and sophistication. I recognize some of my accounting professors who are engaged in deep conversation with PwC partners. I find some students I know and we stand in a corner soaking it all in. Finally, we are asked to be seated. The Managing Partner of the local office stands up and gives a speech that still gives me chills.
Today we welcome the new class of PwC. The future of our firm is yours. We will teach you, guide you and help you build your career. It will be difficult and challenging and we will always demand your best. Today you join a select community of the best and brightest minds in the business world.
Working for one of the Big 4 was a truly remarkable experience. In many ways it felt like joining a fraternity. The connections I made within the firm are some of my best friends today and I cant even count the number of times that a door has been opened for me by a PwC alumni.
It is with that gratitude in mind that I started Big4Guru.com. It is my passion to help accounting students and graduates feel that rush of excitement when they learn that they too have been hired by the Big 4.

Excerpts From the Book - Big 4 Accounting Firms
Excerpt from Chapter 4: The Interview
The proper way to present yourself in an interview is to be both confident and humble. You may be the big man on campus, but in the world of the Big 4 you are competing with thousands of other students to become a small fish in a gigantic pond. Your resume may be impressive, your experience may be phenomenal, but when it comes to working with the Big 4 you have zero experience. The key is to present yourself as someone with the ability to learn. For you working for the Big 4 is as much about learning as it is getting paid. You know you dont know everything and you are not afraid to be honest about this. Sacrificing a shred of confidence for a pile of honesty will pay off every time.
Excerpt from Appendix C: Miscellaneous Tips
When you are dealing with the Big 4 it is OK to be nervous! Whether it is an interview or even an informal conversation at a meet-and-greet, it is perfectly acceptable that you may be nervous. These events are important and can have a huge impact on your future. Truth be told, there is a great deal riding on your performance. While this may scare you, it can also work in your favor.
Showing some signs of being nervous can actually tell the Big 4 that you take this seriously and understand how important it is to do well. The Big 4 would place far more value on someone that seemed nervous than someone who was too bold or cocky. So, if you have an interview coming up, don't worry about being nervous. Just be yourself!
