    Posted: Mon Sep 17, 2007 12:17 pm
    If i have a possession of marijuana charge, do you think Deloitte will still hire me? I have already signed the offer letter months ago and start in 1 month now. Could the background check reject my offer? Please if anyone knows anything, let me know.

    In your first year here, you spend quite a bit of time with all of the other new associates, and that’s partly because all of you take part in a lot of training together. Go Audit teaches you about PwC’s audit methodology and some of the softer skills that help mold us into good auditors.

    In my Go Audit training I worked in small groups through an audit simulation. We tested account balances and learned how to prepare and send bank confirmations. Late in the simulation experienced PwC employees joined us as role players–acting out different situations and personalities that we will likely encounter at client sites.

    Billy Warden, an account director at the marketing company Capstrat in North Carolina, learned all this anew recently when he was being interviewed by an intern who was working on a booklet about Gen Y and work. The topic was job interviews, and, as Mr. Warden remembers it, the 20-year-old was explaining “that job interviews are a two-way conversation, where the company puts out what they want and expect from me, and I put out there what I want and expect from the company.”

    Mr. Warden didn’t think that’s what interviews were. “Maybe in 10 years you’ll get to state your expectations,” he said he told the intern. “Right now, you’re a box of cereal and you’re going to have to sell yourself and hope that someone decides to put you in their grocery cart and give you a try.”

    It is a concept that has all but disappeared from internship programs, where employees make it clear they have no patience for busywork.

    “I walked away from one internship because it was a waste of my time,” says Ryan Healy, who last spring founded Employee Evolution, a Web site that gives advice to Gen Yers entering the work force. “We have limits.” He is 23.
