Audit Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG International in April 2012.

Interview Details – The office visit is composed of two interviews- one with a partner and one with a senior manager. It is not a normal office visit for internship candidates since it is for summer interns and only few students are considered.The interview with the senior manager was very laid back, no behavioral questions. The one with the partner was a little stressful. He asked about my current accouting internship and why I did not apply BDO( I interned there last summer). I think the BDO question screwed me up since I did not give a convincing answer!
