Kpmg Audit Cover Letter
I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at KPMG (Kiev (Ukraine)) in July 2015.
There were 4 stages: 1st- online verbal and numerical tests(time limit, 20min for each)
2nd - accounting and English knowledge tests in their office together with the audit case (you are writing an e-mail to your manager about some problems that you covered during your visit to the company you are going to audit)
3rd- interview with HR (just simple questions: why audit? Why kpmg? Why are you a prime candidate? About your previous employment? Strengths and weaknesses).
4th - interview with Audit manager (lots of questions concerning accounting transactions and excel formulas. Also I was asked about the process of audit: how to do, how can I find errors in reporting of the company, etc.)
As for me the last stage was the most difficult, I was too nervous and the manager wasn't nice to me.
- Wrote everything in the gap before 1 Answer
