    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BKD.

    Interview

    I began the process by submitting for an interview to do their summer leadership conference, which is the only way to get an internship with BKD. The interview itself was very relaxed and mostly a getting to know me session. Just asked about the things I had on my resume. After receiving an offer for the leadership conference just had to make sure I talked to a lot of people and got along with others. Offered the internship afterwards.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BKD in October 2014.

    Interview

    Started with an on-campus interview. Informal interview that consisted of your typical questions regarding your previous experiences and leadership qualities. Go in relaxed since chances are the BKD employee you are talking to is very friendly and wants you to not be nervous as well. Next step was an office visit where you interview with 2 partners or directors, and also go through some presentations telling you more about BKD. My offer came the day after my visit.

    • Tell me a little about yourself   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Brought up any questions or concerns that I had. Personally asked about PTO since I have a wedding coming up, and they were very much willing to work with you. Don't be afraid to ask the hard questions if you have any. If you were offered, they like you and want you to work with them. They will be willing to negotiate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BKD in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted after a meeting with recruiters at an accounting career fair. I had a phone interview with the recruiter followed up by a three hour blitz at the office. I had breakfast, chatted casually, and then proceeded to have two one-on-one interviews with two senior associates, both 30 minutes. All in all, I thought their hiring process was very generous in terms of the time they devoted to the applicants and very informative. I walked away with a great impression of the firm, the office atmosphere, and the congeniality of everyone I met.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected: proudest moment, favorite accounting class, what my boss would say about me. Nothing that really surprised me.   Answer Question
