Forty-five days done. Three more to go. By end of this week, I’ll have officially completed my once in a lifetime journey with one of the biggest companies in the world.

Tadarab didn’t only teach me how to be a good Auditor, but much more than that. Tadarab taught me how to behave in a professional environment, how to have patience and work under pressure. It helped me learn how to communicate with clients, colleagues and seniors; how to be organized, proactive and adaptable.

The thing I enjoyed most in these 45 days was the culture of collaboration and team spirit: at Deloitte, you are never alone! From the very first day, I had constant support from my teammates, my buddy, HR and others, to make sure I’m comfortable and constantly learning while on the job. This genuine interest in nurturing my talents made me enjoy every single task I worked on.

“Making an impact that matters”: I saw this motto being applied every day, with constant invitations to either volunteer or help a charity or assist people and children in need. Over and above the impact on society, Deloitte had an impact on me. In just 45 days, I grew up to become a more responsible, mature and knowledgeable person.

Thank you Deloitte & Touche, thank you for the Tadarab Program. Until we meet again!
