    Are KPMG also closed for Management Consulting in London? I keep trying to apply and it returns an error.

    I'm not sure if capgemini has closed? It may be that different service lines have different dates and they may be doing AC's in stages.
    I've applied for business risk services

    Hi, have you heard back about an interview date? I found out I passed the online tests today and have been invited for interview! Just wondering how long Capgemini take to get back to you. thanks
    They've been very efficient so far. Told that I had passed the test stages last Friday afternoon and on Monday morning I received an email saying that I'd have my telephone interview by Thursday at the latest.

    Are you referring to a telephone interview or an interview at their offices? I've got a telephone interview with them on thursday morning.
    Telephone interview. Was told on Monday that they needed to interview me by the 23rd (Thursday) at the latest, as there was an assessment centre the following week. I'm still waiting for my interviewer to schedule a time and date - presume they'll be in touch tomorrow if they want it all done-and-dusted by Thursday.

    What resources are you guys employing to practice/study for case interviews? Being new to consulting, it's an area I'm working a lot on but also a bit scared of just because I've never done a case interview before.

    I was wondering the same thing! Can I ask what degree you did? I did a law degree so I'm hoping it's not too dissimilar from analysing a legal case

    Anyone having issues with KPMG? Not able to register/log on.

    Also has EY closed applications?
    EY tend to close apps as soon as theyve filled up the positions for that role. It will probs open again in July/August after grads get their degrees, but that is a long time to wait

    Anyone applied to the BDO Management Consulting scheme? Been waiting for ages after sending off the initial app.
    Yeah i only applied last week but heard nothing at all apart from getting an automated email saying they had received it

    So impressed with Grant Thornton's recruitment process they're so quick and efficient. In just over a week I took the online tests, got told I passed and had to do a video interview and the next day got told I passed the video and they've booked in a feedback report already!

    Hi guys, I have a quick question. On the PwC application form did anyone upload a CV? I forgot to upload a CV and their application form didn't prom me to do so either. Does upload a CV help or do they judge you by the response you give in application form??

    Hi guys!

    All those who applied to Capgemini:
    1.1. Which intake period have you chosen (month/year)?
    1.2. Is the verbal reasoning test a standard true/false/cannot say or something different?

    2. Without some kind of Oxbridge (or equivalent) background, does one have any remote chances to pass the CV step at MBB (McKinsey, BCG, Bain)? Any first-hand experience/knowledge about this?

    Thanks!!
