    ACA Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BKL (London, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied by email with a covering letter and CV and then had a telephone interview out of the blue.

    About a week after the telephone interview I got an invitation to the assessment day at their offices where there was a fact to face individual interview, a group problem solving exercise in front of a panel and then a letter writing exercise on a topic of your choice. After the process there was a chance to meet some partners and trainees over lunch which was a great way to see if I fitted into the firm and to find out a bit more about the firm itself.

    There was then a couple of days wait before I got a phone call offering me the position.
