CFAB: Firms Visit

In the previous post, I posted about Grooming Workshop which was organised by Sun-TES to prepare students for Work-Based Learning (WBL) in October. The next step, is the Firms Visit. To give an insight to what firms visit is about is the purpose of this blog.
On the 7th, 8th and 14th of July, we visited the Big 4+2 Audit Firms. (To the future CFAB-ers, the date is decided by Sun-TES, but it will be on the 5th semester, most probably after Grooming Workshop.). So, what are Big 4? Big 4 are basically the largest international professional service firms, offering audit, tax and advisory services. They are PwC, Deloitte, KPMG and EY. And why +2? Because the other 2 firms follow after Big 4 and they are BDO and SJGT (will be changing to GT Malaysia). 

What do you need to bring? - Wear formal attire (MUST) - Water - Money (No lunch provided, but free transportation) - Extra pair of comfortable shoes (for ladies who are wearing heels) - Plaster
(Other information will be given by Sun-TES sta…

Grooming Workshop: Formal wear

Hi!!
It is the start of my fifth semester and we had a grooming workshop on this very first day. It was prepared by Sun-TES and the purpose of this workshop is to prepare students for internship. What to wear and what not to wear.
So, we had Michelle Tan from Chapter One and Brand International Institute as our Image Consultant. We began our class with creating first impression. Greetings and giving compliments, with a smile, dressing, postures, eye contacts, good firm handshake can give a great impression. And later, we proceeded to the dressing part.
I'll start with men's formal wear. Be prepared, there are more restrictions than you think!
Men's Formal
1. Types of blazer Some said that double-breasted blazer is more formal than single-breasted blazer. So, if you have a slimmer fit body, you can opt for double breasted blazer. For starter, it is best to have a single-breasted blazer. 2. Layer The more layer you have, the more formal it is. So, if you have a formal shirt, a…
