McLean, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at EY in September 2013.

Interview Details – It's a campus recruiting process. I had an interview with an assurance partner. Basically, we went through my resume. He asked me about every internship that I listed on my resume. Then he asked me a few challenge questions, such as tell me about your special quality, not just the things listed on your resume.

The process took 3 days - interviewed at EY in September 2010.

Interview Details – I was invited to the interview through campus. The process was standard. First of all, I had to attend Meet the Firm event. Everyone I talked to was very nice and friendly. I applied for a position and waited for the invitation. Once invited, there was a social event before the interview day. The actual interview was 30-45 minutes with 1:1 interview. It was more like conversation than the interview. I felt good after the interview but I had received neither office visit nor reject email. After waiting for a long time, I assumed that I was rejected.
