    Was first contacted to have a dinner meet and greet with the people that would interview me and other candidates. The dinner was very relaxed and helped me feel at ease for the interview.

    Interview

    I'd talked to a recruiter at a career fair and was told the risk assurance internship would be a good fit because I had a background in computers. I had one interview at my school. The interview was mainly behavioral questions. Nothing to hard. Then I was able to ask my own questions. The second round of interviews was at the Denver office where I meet with more people and had a few different interviews.

    A few days after submitting my application an appointment for a phone interview was made. A senior manager and two consultants from the target project team attended the call. Some common personal questions were asked, nothing difficult. After that I was asked to solve a simple case study. The whole call took 1 hour. One day later I received the internship offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PwC.

    Interview

    Asked 5 questions that are competency based. It could be quite intense. Think clearly of your examples and analyse it inside your brain before you answer. Keep calm, think of questions to ask at the end, show your professional experiences if you have. Just show off all you can do and all you have, don't limit yourself/be shy.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at PwC (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Went through university recruiting. Dinner beforehand, interview the next day. Questions were mostly standard with a few that I hadn't considered.

    I interviewed specifically within CIPS/TICE. Even though I reviewed before the interview I completely blanked on which was which during the interview. It didn't come up, but I would have liked to have touched on it.

    One interview was completely behaviorials, the other was personality/fit, however my interviewer asked one question and then talked at me the following 45 mins.
