Bond students vote PricewaterhouseCoopers as Employer of Choice

Bond University students have voted PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Australia as their employer of choice both nationally and globally.

The survey, conducted by Bond University’s Career Development Centre, asked students to nominate which employer they would most like to work for in Australia and overseas.

“The aim was to help us identify those employers for whom Bond students are most interested in working for so that we can engage with them and provide opportunities both on and off campus for our students and alumni to connect with them,” said General Manager of Bond’s Career Development Centre, Mrs Kirsty Mitchell.

“It is essential we develop strong relationships with top tier firms such as PwC so that we continue to maintain our outstanding graduate outcomes ratings. We are committed to finding innovative ways to actively promote the high calibre of ‘Bondies’ to such firms and providing them with the assistance they need to target top talent,” said Mrs Mitchell.

Human Capital Campus Relationship Manager for PwC Australia, Ms Jess Chambers said the company was delighted to be recognised by Bond graduates as an employer of choice.

“It is wonderful that the positive experiences of Bond alumni who are currently employed with us are being communicated to current students on campus in relation to PwC and our graduate offering,” she said.

Ms Chambers said PwC recruits a large number of Bond graduates each year across many areas of the firm including Tax and Legal services, Private Clients and Assurance and Advisory.

“PwC seek to employ students from a diverse range of backgrounds…who can demonstrate a commitment to developing themselves academically, personally and professionally – a commitment that is evident in many Bond students.

“PwC enjoy every opportunity to engage with the Bond student body, ensuring their graduate experience and growth story is a positive and exciting one. We look forward to witnessing and supporting the growth of Bond students in the coming years,” said Ms Chambers.

Mrs Mitchell said that like PwC, employers who have engaged with Bond’s Careers Development Centre previously, actively seek to continue the relationship.

“Likewise, once they have hired one Bond graduate, they want more,” she said, “An independent survey conducted earlier this year indicated that employers who have recruited Bond graduates in the past view those students as future leaders of their organisation.

“Employers also rated Bond graduates’ communication skills very highly, suggesting the University’s unique Leadership Core Skills Program – which develops leadership and communication skills in students from day one of their studies – is successful in developing well-rounded graduates who appeal to blue-chip employers,” said Mrs Mitchell.

Microsoft, Credit Suisse, Deloitte, Barclays, Freehills, Mars Australia and JP Morgan are just some of the leading corporations with whom Bond students have already secured graduate program placements for 2011.
