a. A fast track (an interview with a KPMG Partner)
b. A normal track (via our Assessment Centers)
a. Fast track
■ Have a Facebook account with valid personal data.
■ Prepare an answer to the following question: “What’s your digital story?” Think about how you use technology in everyday life, how digitally addicted you have become, and how you, as a KPMG employee, will use technology for your personal and professional development. Be creative! It doesn’t need to be too complicated.
■ Send the contest answer and your CV via Facebook Messenger. Accepted formats: text, audio, images, video, and files (max 25MB).
■On a monthly basis, the candidates who give the top 3 best answers to the above question will be selected by one of the KPMG Partners for an out-of-the box interview and invited to pass an online test. This test is designed to assess the KSAs – Knowledge, Skills and Attitude.
■ If you score the highest you will get you to the final step – Interview of a Life Time with a KPMG Partner. You will spend great time with one of the Partners during an open talk outside of the office, discovering the KPMG Story, sharing your motivation and interests. The location will be a surprise.
■ Once you ace the interview, based on your availability, and on the department you have applied for, your contract with KPMG will start immediately or later on (but no later than 16 August 2018, in order to be able to join the contest for the trip to the US).
b. Normal track
■ Send us your application. You have multiple options for application: KPMG Career Page, other recruitment platforms, via our career e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org or via a friend who works at KPMG and can recommend you.
■ If your CV is selected you will get the call and an invitation to the assessment center.
■ The Assessment Centers will be organized on a monthly basis – You will pass through several evaluation activities (online test, group exercise, individual exercise, group interview). Spending a full day in our office with a KPMG professional will get you the real flavor of the Junior Role.
■Once you ace the Assessment Center, you will shortly receive a KPMG Offer and based on your availability, and on the department you have applied for, your contract with KPMG will start immediately or later on (but no later than 16 August 2018, in order to be able to join the contest for the trip to the US).

Take advantage of the opportunity to stand out from others and make a good first impression.
Do research and choose carefully
Explore KPMG on social media and in your networking. Discover our values, our culture and understand the role you are applying for. Explain why this particular position at KPMG appeals to you, how you meet the job requirements and how good of a match you are for our organizational culture. Be selective about what positions you apply for. Even if it’s tempting to apply for numerous roles it creates confusion and may be perceived as if you are not serious about any of the positions.
Think about what makes you special
Think about skills, out-of-the box experience or special interests that can differentiate you. Give us an idea of what you would be like to work with. Write about your skills, your achievements and your passions.
Keep it professional
KPMG is a professional services firm and this should be reflected in employment applications. If you happen to use your old, “funny” e-mail address you registered ages ago, it’s definitely time to get yourself a new one. Proofread your application carefully as grammatical mistakes are not what you would like to stand out for.
Do prepare for an interview
Do your homework and research KPMG on every source you have got. Understand our services, the markets we operate in, as well as our values, purpose, vision and the profile we are looking for. Knowing enough about the firm and your potential role will help you stay confident and credible during the interview.
Arrive on time, dress appropriately and turn off your mobile phone. Be positive, smile and be yourself.
When do we feel that an interview went really well?
The interview is passed in the moment “we had that chemistry” on both sides. When professionals meet a good blend of skills, attitude and excitement in their candidates, they will definitely shake hands and welcome him/her to the team.
