    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG.

    Interview

    I had a great experience with the on-site interview. It was three back-to-back 30-minute interview with a lunch at the end with KPMG associates and managers. It might sound overwhelming but if you actually make a good conversation out of the interview they wouldn't seem long at all. All behavioral questions and nothing you can't prepare for.

    I go to a small college that KPMG does not normally recruit from. A coworker sent my resume to their friend at KPMG, who forwarded it to the campus recruiter. Then applied online and had a phone interview about 2 weeks later.

    One week after that, had 2 interviews with a partner and a manager. Each one lasted about half an hour. Received a job offer the next day.
