Graduate Interview

Graduate

I applied online and interviewed at KPMG.

Interview Details I passed the online tests and had a telephone interview. The interview felt a bit rushed and the interviewer called late and told me she was ill. They asked all the questions you'd expect from the competencies listed on their website. Make sure you have a good few examples for each one as in the feedback I was told that it was only one question which I slipped up on.

Interview Question – Was asked a question on a time I had delivered quality and, according to feedback, I had not provided a clear enough example.   Answer Question

Interview Question – If a UK company, which is doing well, wants to expand abroad, what should they do?   Answer Question
