Vinczo: The partner interview was very relaxed it didnt feel interrogative at all but rather conversational. From my experience, if you’ve got to the partner interview you’ve exhibited competencies that they’re looking for. The partner just wants to make sure you can fit in with the team and confident enough to hold a conversation with a senior person. At my partner interview I was asked:
- What do you pride yourself in- Give examples
- Why audit
- Why E and Y
- What do you know about the role
- What do you see as the biggest challenge you’ll face if you join E and Y
- What were my strengths
- What skills I thought were important for a graduate trainee
Have a bunch of questions to ask and keep it a conversation!!
Remember if you have got that far be confident, your doing really well
Tutor: Well actually I dont think im considering deloitte now. It’s between e and y and BDO. Any advice would be great.
I actually graduated in Business Studies ( yes the broadest degree in the world!!!) i dont even think the degree subject matters that much!
