WhatsApp group for big 4 applicants 2019 intake!


#1

Hey guys I figured we make a whatsApp group to help each other out with applications.
They indeed are stressful! I currently have already applied to KPMG and am waiting to hear back after submitting my digital audio submission!
If anyone sees this thread reach out to me on +447491000221 and we’ll get it started :slight_smile:


#2

Have you applied for audit?


#3

Yes I have applied for The empowered Audit program :slight_smile:


#4

Just reading about the layout of the KPMG Empowered Audit programme now; that looks pretty good. I did audit @ PwC and it was front loaded, and very stressful. Spreading it out would definitely make it easier.


#5

What do you mean by frontloaded? I am sorry for my ignorance on this


#6

All the courses and exams were squashed into the first 12 months, which was extremely difficult to do while also working on client work.


#7

So you mean 15 exams in the first year? I dont think that is possbile


#8

It was different when I did it, it was 6 exams in the first year, with 9 exams in total. All the technical stuff was in the first 6 exams.


#9

did you work for pwc?


#10

Yep, in London.


#11

I applied for pwc’s summer internship last year but unfortunately didnt make it through after attending the AC
I will be applying this year again (but for a summer internship).
Can you please help me with AC and the final partner interview?


#12

*but for a graduate scheme


#13

I mean do you have any tips for the case study? I passed the group discussion


#14

It was a long time ago but I can’t imagine it’s changed that much; what do you want to know?


#15

How do i structure my answer and what are the main points to look for?


#16

That’s a very broad question, but primarily they’ll be looking for how well you perform on key competencies. For the case study, the relevant ones will be:

  • Leadership/inituitive
  • Teamwork
  • Commercial awareness- do you understand how the details of the case study affect the client
  • Understanding the impact of the case study on the firm (e.g. reputation)

#17
