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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Tax Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    On campus interview followed by overnight office visit. I believe they stopped providing dinner and lodging to candidates during my time there to save money. Standard office interview except for an odd personality test, followed by lunch, then a manila envelope from a partner with the offer letter.
