Interview

An email was sent to confirm the on-campus interview. After selecting a date, a notice for pre-interview dinner event came up. Many interviewers and greeters did show up but my interviewer did not. Next day, an on-campus interview was held. The interviewer was a Director. He just went through my resume from top to the bottom and asked very general behavioral interview questions. Questions on my major and industry, and added his explanation about the industry as I hesitated a little. After a week, an email was sent that I did not make it to the second round.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at KPMG (London, England (UK)) in December 2009.

    Interview

    My interview process was split up into 2 days - group work and skills test on one day, and the partner presentation the following day. Group interview was not too difficult, we had to analyse the case and provide our solution. Basically, the company wanted to see that we can work in group, how we organise the discussion etc.. Skills test was on the computer - and given a limited time to complete the task I felt under a lot of time pressure. Partner interview felt relatively comfortable, the partner was quite laid-back and friendly. I got a rejection in the end - and according to the feedback I haven't performed well on the computer-based test.
