    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at KPMG (Jacksonville, FL (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I met recruiters on campus at a career fair. Shortly after applying for the internship I received an invite to a pre interview social followed by on campus interviews the next day. I had two 30 minute back to back interviews that included behavioral questions and very personable conversation. Both the dinner and interviews were extremely comfortable and much more relaxed than I anticipated. Most definitely prepare but this interview is in no way scary or uncomfortable.

    Pretty straightforward really.
    Initial phone cal for 20 min with recruiter
    Two days later, I was set up for 45 minutes interview with a Partner.
    3 days later, I was set up for two in-person interview but I traveled out of the country and it was rescheduled.
    Eventually had the interview when I returned. The two Partners were very nice. They made it more like a conversation and made me really comfortable.

    Two weeks after, I got an offer.
