Just be yourself and show them that you fit their culture of diversity, which is famous in the industry. Then you'll get the job. Oh my god it needs 50 words minumum. Let me see how many words I already have. Umm... should have 50 now.

    Group interviews occurred first, with all the possible hires in a conference room. We went through our involvement in university activities, classes we had taken and hopes for our job. We then split up and had two personal interviews, one with a senior manager and one with a partner.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    EY recruits heavily at my university. The recruiters were always friendly. Interview is more conversational, a few behavioral questions. No technical questions, unless you are interviewing for a position in TAS. Follow up with recruiters and send thank you notes. They will appreciate it. Make sure you stand out in a positive light and develop a connected relationship with your recruiter. I had a total of five interviews. Two on-campus interviews. And three in-office interviews for FSO New York Tax. I came from the University of Florida. Studied Accounting and had two client-facing internships with EY.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me specific questions related to my past work experience and collegiate involvement. They also asked me why I want to be in New York   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EY (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Campus recruiting. Applied through school website, then was invited to first round on-campus interview. Heard back within 2 days about an invitation of office visit. Within 3 business days they offered me the position.

    Interview Questions

    • The 1st round interviewer was a manager, who asked all behavioral questions. Such as "You've done many community services, was there a situation when you took the lead while you were not required to?" or "tell me a situation when things were not going to the right direction, and someone in your team was not corroborative, how did you deal with it?" Very hard to involve that person into some interesting conversation besides answering BQs. In the office visit there were 2 rounds of interviews, very conversational, with one manager and one senior manager, they asked me about the 1120s I have prepared in my previous internships, and we talked about teamwork, global mindset (EY's global talent help), tax incentives, the differences between working at corporate and CPA firms, how is working environment in corporate, CPA exams, etc. Questions: "was there a time when you were less motivated?" "how did you deal with challenges/conflicts"   1 Answer
