how to get into big4 TS?

What's needed to get into Transaction Services at the big4?

How difficult would it be to transfer divisions once you're employed at the firm? i.e. moving from audit/tax to TS?

    No one knows, because literally no one here is employed there (in this forum). The only thing I can tell you is that it's possible to get straight out of college. I've only seen this at KPMG though. It might have just been a spur of the moment thing though.

    A friend of mine interned at KPMG and said there were about 4 TS interns. Don't know about other firms.

    As mentioned in another post, I believe people generally go into assurance/tax first, then transfer to TS. As far as I saw, it's pretty easy to transfer internally. Several new people in the TS division last summer were from assurance.

    Is it common for juniors to get summer internships in audit/tax at the big4? I think I recall hearing that they mostly hire seniors/graduates?

    I am an accounting major at a large state school(big4 does recruit here) with a 3.81 GPA.

    You do it after you finish your junior year (Apply and get it during junior year).

    How common is it for people to complete two summer internships? ie one after junior year and another one after senior year/during masters(150 credit requirement for cpa)?
