When they invite you to the interview they give you a list of the behaviours there looking for and all the questions that come up around those are on the kpmg website just have a couple examplesfor each one and tell it in a story format, the interviews are very relaxed and just prepare!

Yeah it went great! it was very informal, it was just a chat about the core competencies.

I got an email the next day saying I got through and I have my final interview next week :s Any tips would be greatly appreciated as I don't know what to expect.

Any Qs add me on Skype : mv02xxx and I will be more than happy to help.

hello all,

I have my first round interview in London on Wednesday (after a month of waiting for a date) and am just looking for some advice really. I've been to the GetAhead session so I have some kind of idea what they are looking for; I think.

Can I ask whether it is purely on the key competencies, or will they test your general business knowledge as well.

As it is roughly an hour long, will there be numerous situations for each competency needed, or do they just extend the questioning on the example uo give them?

Thanks in advance

No business knowledge is required and all of the competencies are tested (except for Awareness Of business Opportunities lol ;-) )

Good Luck Anyway

I have a partner interview coming soon and I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips?
Also, I think that in the past there were group exercises but nothing like that was mentioned by KPMG in their emails.
What is the analysis exercise? Is that just the e-tray exercise?

Thank you.
