    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at KPMG US in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Asked a couple of questions about resume, activities, future plans (whether MBA was in the cards?), why you think you're good for this job.
    Then there was a round where they basically threw current business-related questions at you, like which British company was recently bought by Tata (Jaguar Motors); which firm is called "Big Blue" and many more such questions about companies. These questions were like a not-so-perfect litmus test to measure the candidate's knowledge and interest in current business scenarios, since the job involved working with clients as a management consultant.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at KPMG US in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The candidate is grilled with 3 rounds of interview which can take good 10-15 days (In my case the it took 15 as the partner was not in town).
    1) This round is taken by HR and is a general conversation about your past.
    2) This is the most grilling round, as this is where your skills are tested.
    3) This is the easiest of them all, as you need to meet the partner.
