Kelsie gets a top job

A Business degree from the University of the Sunshine Coast has taken 20-year-old Kelsie Fahey from Gympie to Noosa to Brisbane, straight into a job with the fifth largest accountancy network in the world.

With money and tax on people’s minds at the busiest time of year for accountants, Kelsie’s success will inspire potential USC students at the University’s annual Open Day on Sunday 15 August from 10am to 3pm. She was offered the position as an accountant with BDO’s Audit division in May last year, while living at Noosa and studying at Sippy Downs.

The job was kept for her to start in March this year, after completing her degree and moving to Brisbane.

“Working for BDO is exciting,” said Kelsie, who attended St Patricks’ College in Gympie. “The work is challenging, the clients are interesting and I have learnt a lot about auditing and working in a professional environment.”

She continues to gain support including inductions, training and financial and mentoring assistance as part of BDO’s graduate recruitment program.

Kelsie, who did a double major in Accounting and Financial Planning, said she had drawn on knowledge and experience gained at USC to succeed.
