    As a fresh graduate, they would concentrate on your university experience and they would try to understand what courses you have taken and what was your experience working in teams. They would ask you easy technical questions and might give you some case studies and behavioral questions.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Very informal, we met at a conference and interviewed in a coffee shop. They asked about my comfort level with excessive travel as a consultant, and they also asked about how well I write. I had the opportunity to meet with a few junior members of the team in a round robin fashion.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at EY in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed at university first. Interview consisted of a brief case study. Then interviewed onsite. Onsite interview consisted of 1 case interview, 2 behavioral interviews and one writing assessment.Preparation for case interviews is important. Have a lot of examples from your experiences for the behavioral interview.

     Nicest and most informal environment. You will feel very much at ease.
