Information Security Auditor Interview

Information Security Auditor
Madrid (Spain)

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at EY in September 2009.

Interview Details – the hiring process is quite competitive. Expect 10+ people for the first interview the same day, 80% of them MBA from well known universities. Language is always an asset: be prepared with at least one language besides your mother one. You will need to solve a business case: be precise, do not spend time in irrelevant aspects. ALWAYS get information about the company and the practice before, as you will get questions about that.

Information Technology Risk Assurance (ITRA) Interview

Information Technology Risk Assurance (ITRA)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at EY in October 2011.

Interview Details – I got a first-round on-campus interview through my school's career center. I had to attend a pre-interview social at a downtown hotel the night before my interview. At the social, there were other students interviewing for both full-time and internships in not just advisory but tax and audit as well. All Ernst & Young staff were very friendly and open to questions.

The first interview seemed very brief now that I look back. I had to discuss my resume as well as my favorite and least favorite classes. I got a phone call the following Monday that I was invited for the second (and final) round interview on-site.

The on-site interview consisted of a presentation by EY staff, three interviews (including a case), lunch, and a writing sample, all in this order. The interviews were very conversational, even the case interview. Every EY person I encountered was very friendly and cordial. Got a rejection email 8 days later. I heard through the grapevine that not many people were selected for offers (<3) so now it kind of feels like I was led on...

Interview Question – Name a time you had to do something that wasn't of the highest integrity.   Answer Question
