    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Sydney (Australia)) in May 2017.

    Overall, it's been quite an inclusive and efficient process. I've been kept in the loop of the status of my application at all stages and it's been a positive experience. First was the online game aptitude test, followed by the video interview and next is the partner face to face interview.
