For my 3rd year of my Bachelor of Global Commerce degree from National University of Ireland, Galway I spent 9 months on work placement with DHKN.

I started in September 2020 in DHKN’s Medical Division, and I was fortunate that DHKN kindly allowed me to extend my placement until May 2021, as a result of my Erasmus being cancelled due to the pandemic.

At DHKN I always felt welcome. There were great supports in place to help me through my internship. All of the staff at DHKN were always willing to help and I learnt so much from them.

I gained invaluable experience preparing both company accounts and income tax returns for a range of clients. I was assigned meaningful tasks that enhanced my knowledge of accounting and the experience I gained will definitely aid me in my future endeavours.

I started my work placement in DHKN in September 2017. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce in National University Ireland Galway. During my internship, I worked in the Tax Department.

What I enjoyed most about working in DHKN is how welcomed I felt from the start by my team and by all of my work colleagues. From the beginning I was given opportunities to learn and develop new skills.

I have gained experiences that will benefit me greatly in my future career, some of which includes how to work under deadline pressure and how to complete tasks efficiently as part of a team. I am looking forward to continuing to apply all that I have learnt in my final year in college and in my future career.

I started my placement with DHKN in May 2017. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce in National University Ireland Galway.

I was placed in the Accounting Advisory Sector within DHKN. I found DHKN to be a very nice place to work, all the staff are very friendly and I really enjoyed my time there. I gained invaluable work experience in the areas of accounts preparation and income tax. There is a good work-life balance within the company. The company organised a number of social events and I was a member of the tag rugby team which helped me get to know my work colleagues.

I am studying a Bachelor of Commerce in National University Ireland Galway and for my internship I spent 7 months in DHKN from May to December 2017. While on internship I worked in the Tax Department working in the areas of Income Tax and VAT compliance.

I gained great experience during my time in the firm, I got the chance to learn all about tax computations, compliance and tax deadlines. I gained many new skills in DHKN and was also given the chance to improve upon my existing IT skills.

During my time in DHKN I gained invaluable experience that’ll stand to me throughout my career.
