A day in the life
What’s it like to work at Fordham? Get a taste by following a typical day for one of our young staff.
Arrive at work
“I arrive at work. It’s going to be a busy day. There’s that problem that Michael, my boss, gave me yesterday about how to structure the tax for a growing engineering business. I’ll have to get back to that one. I think there’s something about it in the latest tax report…”
“I meet with a Partner to go through a client’s business plan. I have responsibility to do the first draft myself, after having met with the client and looked through their financial statements. But there is always the safety net of a director to sign off on the final plan.”
Client visit on-site
“I visit one of my clients in the wholesale furnishings business with a senior associate. One of the things I enjoy most is meeting face-to-face with clients. It helps me understand their business better, so I can learn and give better advice.”
“We’ve just renovated our offices, and I like to grab a coffee at our cafe area when my brain is full. One of our new graduates is there - she’s the ‘buddy’ I’ve been assigned to help learn the ropes at Fordham. We’re going to the Spring Racing Carnival in a couple of weeks as a firm social event, which is always a bit of fun.”
