    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very informal. The interviewer dispensed with many of the formalities. We established a good rapport quickly. The experience overall was not very daunting, assuming you have done the preparation. There were a series of networking events which lead to a more formalised interview process.

    Online assessment includes a series of different scenario analysis. It is a kind of behavioral assessment mostly testing your problem solving skills. In additional, there is no correct solution for each question and no time limit in this online assessment. What I can do is choosing the best and least choices in each scenario.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KPMG US in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Application for Winter Vacation in Internal Audit

    The assessment centre consists of two interviews- both behavioural based. One with a manager and the other with either a director or a partner of your service line. These interviews go back-to-back each taking around 45 minutes, so you will be talking to them for quite a long time. Answer the questions very thoroughly and use examples when required.

    The interview with the manager is more focused on behavioural, following the STAR format. Basically they want to see that you have a lot of experience with teamwork, and how you deal with certain types of situations, e.g. dealing with failure. They also want to see that you're a good communicator and can get your point (situation/story) across to them.

    The second interview is more informal and focuses on your motivation joining KPMG, and why you chose your service line. Make sure your answer is clear and your reasons are not vague.

    Then there is an etray exercise where you are given a case study and you must send an email to your client. This is pretty straight forward; just include as much info in your email as you can and try and act as if you are selling your service to the client.
