    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied to KPMG's Management Consulting Practice in Jakarta, Indonesia. The online application process is slightly cumbersome- they ask you to basically re-write your whole resume online (standard for some consulting firms), but also ask you to highlight key takeaways/achievements in each position you've had. After this, I was invited for my assessment day, where I had to complete a 'fit' questionnaire, English test (written test, basic grammar, and a few financial terms that I was asked to define via multiple-choice i.e. What is the OECD- Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), an IQ test (if you have yet to do one, I recommend finding online assessments- this was more along the lines of 'guess the next picture' given a sequence of 8 pictures (3x3)). After this, you are scheduled for a one-on-one interview with your manager where she/he will go through your experiences from your written application and ask you experiential/behavioral questions. That said, you can definitely earn big points if you are able to demonstrate a solid understanding of the firm's practice- (i.e., its three service arms, where does Management Consulting fall under, what industries the Jakarta practice serves, and what distinguishes the firm from other consulting firms).

    Following this, you are all set! My experience with KPMG overall was definitely less challenging compared to other consulting firms given that there was no case interviews (and only one interview).

    Unfortunately, the package offered was not competitive, and it was not revised after my negotiations with them. To be honest, I left my negotiations feeling that KPMG did not appreciate my value proposition or what I had to bring to the company, and this was a significant turnoff for me.
