Beyond technical skills.
At BDO, we believe in recruiting individuals with a wide variety of backgrounds, viewpoints, and perspectives. But there are a few things that all strong BDO candidates have in common. They’re looking for the resources and diverse client portfolio of a global organization, with flexibility and a people-first culture. They’re born entrepreneurs, looking to build business and drive growth. In short, they’re looking to take ownership of their careers.
Here’s what it takes to join the BDO team:
Strong communication skills. Ours is a business of people. While technical skills are a must, strong candidates also possess the interpersonal skills necessary to work well with clients and co-workers, and to communicate effectively with all levels of management. And as all great communicators know, that means knowing how to listen as well.
Strong work ethic. Take initiative. To succeed at BDO, you must be motivated and willing to pursue new opportunities. In fact, you should be excited about them.
Ability and willingness to learn. Our business is always evolving. Regulations are always changing. What works in one industry won’t necessarily work in another.
Strong candidates are motivated to acquire new skills, and have a desire to continually grow, build, and improve.
Relationship building skills. We said it above, and we’ll say it again: ours is a business of people. BDO looks to recruit individuals who build strong networks and are able to develop relationships at all levels – in and outside of the firm.
