    Interview Details

    I applied through an online recruiting site for the two day summer event that they host at their office. The recruiter contacted me online to ask if I was interested in interviewing to be a Launch Intern. The interview process started with a pre-interview cocktail event before the campus interview sessions. I then proceeded to interview with three managers, one from each service line, each interview lasting approximately thirty minutes. The interviews were all behavioral questions and the recruiters were very helpful throughout the whole process.

    Audit Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at EY.

    Interview Details

    Did not ask any technical or behavior question. Interviewer just went through my CV and ask me to ask him questions. The entire process is very conversational. Get a feeling that the interviewer is just testing the interviewee's interpersonal skill instead of technical skill. I suggest applicants should be prepared to ask some questions that shows you have done some research to the firm.
