    IT Advisory Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of interviews. The first one was 30 minutes on-campus. The interviewer was a manager and he had a lot of behavioral questions to ask, so he spoke really fast. He gave positive feedback and seemed to like me. The second interview was at the Seattle headquarters from 10:30 AM to 3 PM. The first hour included a company overview. Then the next hour and a half was dedicated to lunch with the professionals. After that, from 1 to 3 PM were four back-to-back interviews with managers, each lasting 30 minutes.

    IT Advisory Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at KPMG US in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    First interview consisted of a 1:1 interview with a senior manager of IT Advisory which took place at my school. Got a call about a week later telling me I've been selected for a 2nd round (KPMG Inside Look Program) in NYC. The program was a whole day of events that started from 12:30 to about 9PM. There were 2 1:1 interviews (behavioral stuff, walking through resume) then we were broken into groups then a presentation by a partner took place. Afterwards we all went to a restaurant where KPMG had booked for us. There, there was an open bar and a short mingling session. After about half an hour or so, the speed recruiting process took place. You were put in a group with 1 or 2 partners, and every table had either an associate or a manager or senior manager or partner of KPMG. Every 8 minutes, you would hear a whistle and move onto the next table. You had to sit at 5 tables in total. Afterwards, it was an open-seating buffet style dinner. I got a call back from them after 2 or 3 days letting me know they'll be sending me a job offer letter in the mail. It was generally a very laid-back, fun day.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on campus with a local recruiter from Boston. Was very polite and receptive to questions. The recruiter asked very general basic questions for interviews such as:

    What leadership roles have you help? Tell me about a difficult group project? What are some of your interests?

    Interview was scheduled for 30 minutes and took about that long. About two weeks later I received a phone call from the New York office recruiter saying that I have been accepted into the next round of interviews in New York city. They paid for my transportation and hotel for the day before and day of. Walked over from the hotel to the main office (only 2 or 3 blocks) and had a small breakfast with them and then the interview day began.

    A partner from the New York office began by speaking to all the interns at the office with a presentation discussing KPMG's acitivites and each of the areas that we would be interviewing for. There was a period of questions. Afterwards the New York recruiter spoke to us about the intern experience and what makes KPMG a good place to begin your career. There was some sort of promotional movie involved and then before lunch there was a group activity where each group was given a topic discussed in the presentation and with the help of one full time KPMG employee we were supposed to elaborate on the topic and give a skit/presentation on it. The winning group got some free prizes (free KPMG bags and luggage tags). There was a break for lunch and afterward we were pulled upstairs one at a time for two interviews with managers. One strictly behavioral the other more technical based.

    After all the interviews were complete we were free to go back to the hotel.

    Since it was an internship there was no negotiation. About 3 days after the interview I received a phone call from the recruiter and was invited to be an intern for the summer 2010. A packet followed in the next few days with all the documentation I was supposed to sign and return.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career services website. They took us out to a pre-interview dinner the night before the first round interview. There were 8 candidates for IT Advisory at my table, with 4 current KPMG employees. During the dinner (which had about 40 students total for all other practices), they made a presentation about the firm to give us more information. The dinner was definitely enjoyable and a great way to showcase your personality.

    The next day I interviewed with the manager who was at my table, so I already felt very comfortable around him and he had a sense of what I was like. Four of the eight of us got asked to come to the second round interview, which was about two weeks after in NY. It was an all-day event that consisted of info sessions, panel discussions, networking, two more 1:1 interviews, and speed recruiting. Speed recruiting takes place at the end of the day before the dinner where you spend about 2 minutes with each employee and then rotate. It was definitely a lot of fun.

    I received a call the next day giving me the offer for the internship. Very timely.

    Everyone was very friendly. I think showing that you have good interpersonal skills because everyone seems very focused on people at the firm.
