Hey everyone! I just got back an email from EY for an Interview to be a Technology Risk Intern for Summer 2023! However, this is my first ever interview so I’m really nervous how it will turn out. Is there any questions I should prepare for ,specifically, that any of you been asked a-lot in interviews? How do their interviews work usually ? Any advice and comments are welcome! EY

OP - 🏃🏾🏃🏾🏃🏾 from Technology Risk.

likefunny

I suggest not going into tech risk. Here’s why:
You’ll spend most of your time testing and documenting controls. This means meeting with process owners, sending our request lists, following up a million times on the request list and missing pieces, plus surprises that pop up along the way. Writing up narratives, creating flowcharts, figuring out how to use internal documenting/file sharing systems that are broken/clunky most of the time. TAKING SCREENSHOTS, inspecting said screenshots, finding issues, following up for more support. Sometimes it’s easy to read screenshots, which is boring, sometimes it’s a complex data file, which is not as boring but it is complicated and you have to understand it with minimal training and this skill isn’t really transferable. Your attention to detail skills will increase, but hard skills are pretty confined to tech risk and not super transferable. Idk if they’re selling this to you as consulting, but it’s not true consulting.

Spent first part of my EY career in Tech Risk, and there is some truth to this comment, especially as a staff or early senior; however, I disagree about the transferability of the skills. Documentation skills are critical as a professional in any domain, and frankly many people lack skills in this area.

Also, thoroughly understanding how data is captured, processed, and reported in a variety of companies and industries is extremely valuable. Integrity of system processing and controls ensuring data is complete and accurate are important to all parts of a business...

Oh that means I didn’t pass the application 🥴

Just a tip, you need to relax yourself while doing the interview. There will be several rounds of interview so you need to do your best on the first part so you can move forward thereafter. Prepare for the technicalities of your job and behavioral questions.

The best way to prepare for interviews is rehearsal. Do mock interviews to practice how to communicate yourself well.

like

You should go online and learn about case interviewing and do some practice.

Moreover, I suggest you to go on Glassdoor and look at the interview questions for the same position. You can find a lot of useful insights 🪄🫡

There’s not going to be any case questions for an intern in risk…all behavioral. Don’t come off as a weirdo and OP will be fine.

See if your career center offers practice interviews

Yep, that's what I did and it was really helpful!

In addition to the suggestions above, you can also do your research about the company. List some possible questions and try to answer them. This will help you prepare for the interview. Good luck!

I could use some advice on how to prepare for an interview with HR. I had a first round interview with the hiring manager and an associate that went well.
