    My professor referred me directly to our university recruiter after their OCR period because they were still looking for potential candidates. Poor communication, unenthusiastic, and ultimately was not worth while to pursue.

    Audit Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    This is why KPMG is the best. Here is what I did to receive my full time offer: 1) network with the campus recruiter before the recruiting events event start. This helps get your face in the room before a lot of applications come in. 2) Attend the recruiting events. This is simple because you want to see if this is the company you want to work for and it shows the recruiting team you're interested. 3). Apply. This is simple as it seems. Step 1 is crucial for this because this can separate yourself from the rest. 4) Campus interviews. Be yourself and study up on KPMG especially the federal practice if you're interested. STAR practicing as well. 5) super day aka second round. Be yourself again and you're almost out of the woods. 6) Offer! Overall, awesome and relaxing process by KPMG

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at KPMG in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through my University and was informed that I received an interview after a week. There was only one round of interviews, which consisted of two 45 minute behavioral interviews with a manager and a managing director. The first 45 minutes were focused more on my experiences and history. Questions were typical behavioral interview questions. The interviewer was friendly and casual. I had 5-10 minutes at the end to ask him questions about his experiences and opinions. The second interview began with me going over my resume, but most of it was spent having a conversation with the interviewer regarding what I could expect from a career at KPMG. They contacted me one week later informing me of my offer.
