Work Experience / Internship
Work experience at PKF in Eastern Africa is very different from what you might expect. There's no photocopying or coffee-making in sight.
Instead, it gives you a proper idea of what the world of accountancy is really like.
What you get is a week-long programme that covers all different topics. You get to find out about the kind of companies that PKF in Eastern Africa works with, take part in practical exercises, learn CV writing skills and much more. The idea is to introduce you to accountancy and give you some pointers on job seeking.
By the end of the week, you should have a much better idea about your future career choices. You can then start thinking seriously about whether accountancy might be for you, and whether you might apply for one of PKF in Eastern Africa's schemes when the time comes.
Alternatively, here at PKF in Eastern Africa we also offer three to six month internships.
