    Who's been offered an internship? What division and office?

    Thought it would be a good way of getting to know other EY'ers.

    I've got my first interview coming up at the beginning of february, I was wondering if any you could shed some light on what to expect? Is it just the standard sort of competency questions? Any advice is appreciated, thanks!

    Hey, the questions aren't the same as normal competency questions, they are strength based. So be aware of what your strengths are and examples, they may ask you questions such as how would you organise your week or what do you enjoy more learning a theory or applying it, things like that.

    Also need to be aware of what the role you're applying for entails, what you will be doing, demonstrate you've done some research, might get asked where you see yourself in 3 years at the end. Also prepare some questions to ask.

    Wikijobs has some useful info.

    Good luck!

    Do any of you know if applications are still open for Audit positions? I've had an application on the go for ages but got bogged down with other work before I had the chance to send it off; I just hope I haven't left it too late.

    Should be fine tbh, I found both incredibly relaxed and I had never done an AC before.

    You'll be fine, just prepare well and back everything you say up with examples.
