KPMG 1 I do, just looking at all avenues


It's how I got hired at EY

That's interesting. How long did it take them to contact you after you applied ?

3 months

Did you get an email from a recruiter or from like a generic mailbox? Did you just get an email response out of the blue? How did the process go after?

Going to EY and it took about 3 weeks to get a call from when I applied

PWC1 did they just call out of the blue?

I got an email from a recruiter that set up a call, then I had 3 calls, then an I person interview.. I applied in November started in May but this was in 2013 when they were just ramping up some parts of advisory again

@op the recruiter emailed to set up a call. Interviewed the same week and offer very shortly after. Really impressed with the expediency of the whole process

PWC 1 I can imagine that you were impressed. So you had a call with a recruiter then interview with partner in office?

EY 1 who were the calls with? Recruiters? SMs? Partners?

@op so it was: call with recruiter, call with partner (2 days after), in person interviews with two SM's and one partner (end of the week)


PWC 1 That's amazing how quick that was! Was the proposed start date soon after the offer?

@op I was really fortunate. The start date was just over 8 weeks from the proposed start date

I meant the offer date was just over 8 weeks from the proposed start date. Lol.

That is so perfect. Hopefully I can be that lucky with Deloitte haha

My first call was with a recruiter 2nd call was with another recruiter, 3rd call was technical interview with partner then In person was 3 partners and a manager

You should get messages from recruiters on LinkedIn

Applied through the website. Called two months later.
