    I have gone through two interviews:
    1- first with a senior manager. Most of his questions were behavioral ones. He asked Why KPMG? Also asked about my intentions to complete my studies (whether ACCA or CPA). Asked me why ACCA (it is the preferred qualification for the big4 in that region).
    2- Technical interview with a written test (Accounting and English/Arabic tests). You will be asked to translate an English paragraph to Arabic as many clients have English and Arabic financial statements.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The salary and benefits are fixed. it is good to accept the offer because you will learn much within the first 3-5 years. at the same time, you will have the chance to work on getting your qualification. If you wish you can leave to the industry afterwards
