  choose Accounting? (B)Why public Accounting vs private accounting? (C)What do you expect from Grant Thornton as an employer?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


I answered that
(A) I chose accounting because of my family's background in business and my own personal searching which showed accounting to be universally applicable and the backbone of business.

(B) Public Accounting provides a broad basis of clients and experiences with diverse opportunities to differentiate itself from corporate accounting. I want to go public for the diverse experience as opposed to having a more typical 9-5 type job.

(C) I expect Grant Thornton to be a challenging yet rewarding experience where I can learn something new about a process, client, industry, or team philosophy every day until I have learned enough to establish myself as a leader within the office culture.
