    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at PwC in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I wanted to do an intern at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Frankfurt, Germany after my first Bachelor year. After one of my professors forwarded my application to the HR department I received an email concerning possible dates for an first telephone interview.

    The telephone interview was with the Partner of the team I wanted to do my intern. It was more about the personal fit and why I wanted to do this intern in this firm. Nearly no techniqual questions.

    Afterwards I was invited to the Frankfurt office and had a second interview with the partner and a Manager from his group. They questioned primarily techniqual questions, however I was able to answer them after my first year of university so from my actual point of view it was pretty basic.

    Two days after he interview I got a phone call and an offer for an internship within PwC. They were pretty flexible concerning beginning and end as well about the overall length.
