I was wondering if anyone has any idea how many candidates that reach the final round of interviews with the big 4 get through? I’ve got an assessment day at deloitte next Monday and I’m very curious as to how many that reach this stage get offers.
It strikes me as being almost cruel to bring a candidate in, put them through the e-tray, have them meet successful trainees, have a partner interview and be given a tour of the office where they could be working and then to tell the majority that they have failed! I can understand why the final day is like this since candidates should be given enough knowledge of their potential workplace as possible in order for them to make an informed decision if they are successful. However, as a candidate who would almost certainly want the job it would be quite gutting to be turned down after spending a whole day where you really want to work.
If anyone has an idea of the percentage of final day candidates that receive offers I’d be curious to know.
