Offered a job at Ernst & Young, BUT....
« on: May 07, 2008, 05:00:42 PM »
I was offered a job and I accepted, but I'm worried about the firm's extensive background check which occurs after they hire.  My credit rating is fair - I've got a huge law school debt load and I defaulted (but completely paid off)a undergrad school loan several years ago.  Do you think this will prevent me from working at E&Y?


Thanks for any info you can provide.

not in the least bit.I'm more curious as to why you'd want to work there.

Thanks.  I've recently been hearing some negative things about E&Y.  The interview process went rather quickly and the people seemed really cool.  I'm interested in the specific work as well.  What have you heard about them?

i assume you'll be in their tax division. if so, you'll be cranking out returns for at least 2 years. pretty mind numbing. seems like a waste of a JD and bar card, unless of course you dig tax law. you can specialize in something like SALT down the road i suppose.
