    Audit Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at EY (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process for an audit internship revolves around behavioral interviews. There were a set of 3 interviews -- the first of which was a phone interview - casual and basically a screening process for the on campus interview. EY heavily recruits out of my school, which made the set up process for the interviews very easy. During the on campus interview, they went over the content of my resume and discussed my intentions with public accounting. The in house interview involved a series of 3 interviews of 45 minutes each -- with a senior/manager, senior manager and a partner. Each of my interviews involved behavioral questions in how I responded under pressure, my ability to work with teams, etc. I asked a lot of questions during my interviews and I believe that led them to believe I was interested and excited about the position.

    Having now been involved with the recruiting process on the other end, what I think EY looks most for in an audit candidate include:
    - strong command of English (unless recruiting for a language specialized division of EY)
    - examples of the ability to work well in teams
    - strong interest in the public accounting field
    - humble, yet confident presence

    Negotiation

    As an intern or a new hire there is no room for negotiation. As an experienced hire (senior position and above) there is significant room for negotiation, as there is a huge demand for effective seniors. This is especially true for candidates coming from other Big 4 firms.
