Had mine today and it went very well touch wood
began with a simple ‘run me through your cv’ question followed by why accounting, why bdo, why audit and why i’d be suited. Then we talked a little my choice of uni and choice of A levels.
Then moved onto competencies and there were a fair few although not too taxing. The various ‘give examples of when worked in a team and it was successful, a team which wasn’t successful’ questions came up. Also a time when i’ve tutored someone and a time where I have presented to a group or society and how.
Pretty much after all my answers he attempted to dig a bit deeper so make sure you have a little extra for each example.
Finally he asked about what I knew about BDO that I hadn’t already stated under my answer for ‘why bdo?’ and how the economic situation effects bdo and their clients. He asked how I keep up to date with the business world. Not even any stories that interest me just of how I keep up to date.
Also another was how I would go about deciding where to work if I got offers from the places I had applied to.
If you’ve done the necessary prepartion and you can talk clearly and keep it concise, you should have no problem
It was actually very enjoyable day and I thought the chance to meet a recent joiner was great and really useful
