Meet Conor - 2017 KPMG in Bermuda scholarship recipient.

2017 KPMG Scholarship Recipient

Beginning my third year at McGill University, it was time to start thinking about entering the workforce and developing the necessary skills and experiences to become a future leader in an organization. Through the KPMG scholarship and graduate program, I now have a clear opportunity to enter a world-renowned firm that has the size and guidance procedures set in place for me to enter an industry that interests me and excel.

Ever since High School I have always enjoyed studying Economics and learning how individual business and markets thrive or struggle. To truly understand how companies and economies work; however, I think having a background in accounting is a must. What appealed to me the most about the KPMG scholarship, was having the opportunity and mentoring to study for and obtain my CPA and the wide breadth of positions offered within the firm for internships and full-time jobs. What I also think is unique to a career beginning with KPMG, is a chance to provide services and interact with a variety clients, which in turn, will bring new experiences and insights. I hope to join KPMG on their Advisory or Financial Services team, providing research and consulting services to local companies helping them to operate to the best of their abilities and thrive in their industry.

Through the scholarship, I also have the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree in management or accounting after graduation. I will then have the freedom to choose which department in the firm interests me the most. Investing in youth is extremely important for a country to continue to thrive, and I think KPMG does a phenomenal job through their scholarship and various work experience programs. I am honoured to be the recipient of the 2017 KPMG Scholarship and am excited to be in a position to start giving back to the firm in the future. I have quite a bit more studying to do with two more years of undergrad, graduate school and the CPA, but I feel confident that KPMG will provide me the guidance and resources to achieve my goals.
