    KPMG Update:



    Amazing. I was just about to email them to withdraw from the process (as I've accepted an offer elsewhere) but they've saved me the effort.

    Timeline wise:

    - Applied mid September and less than a week later, I was told that I'd passed the screening and testing and that somebody would be "in touch with you within the next two weeks to organise a telephone interview."

    - Early October, I get a generic "we're still looking at obtaining dates for your interview and will be in touch" email.

    - Zero communication until the above email received Friday evening (two months after being told they'd be giving me an interview)

    I suspect I'm not the only one who got this email?

    For those of you still looking for a position, and who probably wasted hours upon hours preparing for a promised telephone interview that never materialised, I'm truly sorry.

    What's that saying in business? Something about under promising and over delivering...
    never got the email, but as I got through over the phone and was told the same thing I feel the same level of annoyance. Time wasters.

    Hey, has anyone done the OC&C online case study test? Not sure what to expect
    I'm guessing they have gotten in contact with you? I haven't heard anything from them so far

    Also, has anyone heard from L.E.K and Roland Berger?

    Nothing from L.E.K but I know someone who's had tests followed by a rejection so I'm assuming the worst. No idea about Roland Berger as it was probably the only one I didn't apply to.

    hi guys, quick question about case interviews


    How do you know how granular to go in your analysis? For example, you start asking for figures for unit revenue, or competitor performance, costs, price, volume etc. but the interviewer has nothing to give - so after 10 minutes of asking for figures for various aspects you realise that the case is actually really qualitative and short. How can I avoid this happening and identifying early on how much detail i need to go into?

    I'm in the same boat. I emailed them and they gave absolutely nothing away! Have you done it yet?

    Have you guys done the tests yet??

    Earlier posts seemed to imply that KPMG MC was full.

    Oh of course, "unprecedented" amount of applications. Utter rubbish. Crap from HR.

    I got a very polite rejection email from them this morning so I guess they are sorting through applicants at the moment.

    Halfway through October I think - but that was for the grad scheme. Good luck!
