Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at KPMG US.

Interview Details

I went through KPMG first round campus interview. It was very straight forward, not very conversational. I was asked about 4-5 behavioral questions and my interviewer wrote down something quickly. I also asked some questions like what's the company's management style.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter comes to your school, you submit your resume to them. You get an email for an interview if they are interested. You interview with 2-3 managers. If they like you, you hear back within 1-2 weeks. Fill out the job application, wait for them to do a background check, and then get the offer letter with 2 weeks to accept it.

    Interview Questions
    • One manager simply asked "tell me about yourself" at the start, and then did not speak again until the half hour was up, and simply ended with "thank you".   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were great. Emphasized more on the person, not their qualifications/past job experience. Questions included things like work-life balance, how to manage handle stress, expectations and questions I had surrounding the type of work that I would be doing.

    Submit resume to a Human Resources person, for his or her review. Then she'll hook you up with a Partner for a phone / face-to-face interview, which typically does not take very long. Most interview questions were personal / career-related (nothing technical of any nature). Typically, if the Partner likes speaking with you, that's it.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at KPMG US.

    Interview Details

    Applied through the campus career center website as well as the official KPMG website. Had a first round interview on campus and was notified within a few days that I had been selected for a second round interview in office. The in-office interviews were more challenging than the first round on campus interview, but nothing too unbearable. Overall it was a very pleasant process.
