    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Vienna, VA) in March 2017.

    Two half-hour interviews over Skype because I was studying abroad at the time. Interviewers were personable, and cared about getting to know me as an individual. Questions were challenging at times - made me think beyond typical behavioral interview.

    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

    There were a total of 3 interviews. I got to really know the recruiter, which made the process easier. The first interview was a phone interview. The final two interviews were in the office.
