    Applied through my school's career center and interviewed with a managing director the following week. After talking a bit about myself, we went through my transcript, and I was asked for an explanation for the courses I didn't get an A in. Spent the rest of the interview going through the rest of my resume in detail. Found out a week and a half later that I didn't move on in the process.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a professional from the Valuations Group at KPMG New York Office. It was about half hour long, started with me talking thru my resume, highlighting course work that would be applicable to the position. A couple of general questions of why KPMG. The interviewer was very nice and approachable, readily gave his feedback about his experiences and background, it was more conversational than formal interview. We discussed valuation methods and which ones were mostly used in industry vs school setting.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter who came to my campus at the time to advertise an Accounting role. I was a Finance major, and I networked with the recruiter to see if Finance positions were available. Luckily, there was something for me. I interviewed with the recruiter, then 2 other people on separate days. Very conversational interviews. Nothing too technical. Mainly behavioral questions that were easy to discuss - just to get a feel of my personality.
