Not in this practice but - General advice: Be ready to speak to your experience and focus on outcomes. Have thoughtful questions ready (not your basic/generic questions found on google) Additionally, people want to see if you’re someone they want to work with. We’re all humans at the end of the day so don’t be afraid to share a little about yourself and what makes you, you. I always try to work in different topics during interviews that typically have some kind of connection for people. It helps to ease the conversation when you both discover you have similar interests or experiences, etc.

Thank you this is very helpful!

How do you think it went? I loved my KPMG interviews although I went with EY. They were my favorite people but didn’t give the title I wanted.

Sorry it’s been a while but nothing I was surprised about. Your typical behavioral interview questions! Work in a team. Challenging project. Leadership experience.

Had an interview today and was asked what my current salary is and what is the range i am looking for. I managed to avoid answering by asking in return what is their budget. The recruiter stated 65k-85k and my idiot self stated that I would like my salary to be in the 70ish🤦‍♀️ I should have said towards the end range. If contacted for a second round, how should I talk regarding $? Feels like I am leaving money on the table. Will they ask again.. does anyone have experience with this situation?
