    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Grant Thornton in November 2013.

    Interview

    Basic campus hiring process. 1st round on campus with two managers, both alums. 2nd round at office included pre-interview dinner night and hotel accommodation. Next day interviews with 2 managers and 1 partner. All conversational and laid back. More about why GT, why Audit, what I wanted out of it.

    Interview Questions

    • Why audit? Asked for examples of making impact, taking initiative, etc....   Answer Question
