How did you find it? I just sat for it! I have BDO in the pipelines. It’s different this year. They’re doing the video interview along with your assessments

It was alright, it wasn’t the worse, just been sent an email to do a video interview for Grant Thornton. I’m going to do BDO tomorrow. I guess doing it altogether shortens the application timeline down potentially? Maybe it helps them if they’ve had to furlough people and are working with less people in the department

No, just got the email and they said they will be in touch in 2 weeks? I can't seem to sign into my Workday thing. How have you been preparing for it?

I got an email saying I passed the assessment so my application was being reviewed by a staff member and I will hear back in 5 days. It's now been 6 days, anyone else in the same position?

This is for BDO!

I've only done a couple before but they're not too bad ! Most are broken up into a team exercise, an interview, a presentation and maybe a writing exercise. I wouldn't worry about prepping yet though, you'll have loads of time after they confirm the dates and stuff. Plus for the interview it'll be similar to the virtual one id imagine so just prep situational and strengths based questions !
