    Interview process

    I had two interviews for Deloitte, the first was with a previous graduate and the second was with one of the partners.
    The first interview was mainly competency based and lasted around an hour, with roughly 5 questions being asked. The questions centered around commercial awareness, leadership skills, teamwork skills, problem solving skills and achievements. Each question was followed by a few smaller questions relating to my previous answer and were quite probing.
    I passed the first interview and then attended the partner interview which was much more intense. This involved a presentation revolving around the changes being made in the accounting industry which I found very challenging! I could tell my interviewer had strong opinions on the topic and so I thought it was quite difficult to please him. I also had a few more competency based questions, as well as questions regarding my motivation for the job and hopes for my career.

    Most difficult question

    The presentation was the most difficult part as I found it difficult to find information beforehand that I could talk about confidently.

    Interview tips

    Make sure presentation is well prepared and that you have some fairly recent examples for your competency based questions- a few of mine were examples from high school and this was part of my feedback. Commercial awareness is also a big factor!

    Interview process

    First I was sent a numerical and verbal reasoning test to complete. After I passed these I was invited to a first stage interview with one of the Manager's at the firm. I was asked to talk about myself and talk through my CV, which I did in a summary type thing. Then I was asked some competency questions like 'Describe a time when you have worked in a team - what challenges did you face how did you overcome them?
    'A time when you organised an event - challenges and how you overcame them'
    'A time when you had to make a decision - what things did you have to think about before arriving at your decision'

    The next stage was the Partner interview, which required me to read a case study and then answer some questions about it. It's not too difficult, you only get a bulk of the information on the day and the questions are based around the info that's all there along with a bit of common sense.

    Most difficult question

    'Your strengths and weaknesses?' - This one is tricky because as much as we all have weaknesses, the key thing is to turn it around. Also if you're going for a numerical based role and you say 'I'd like to improve my written communication skills but I've started writing a blog/journal to practice and get better' - Doesn't sound too bad so just phrase it in a certain way.

    Interview tips

    Do your research - with big firms especially there are so many people who have been in the boat before and there is a range of experiences you can draw from to get a feel of what types of questions they will ask you. Also I would come across very confident and relaxed. I find that when I don't put pressure on myself about getting the job or not I do much better. I'm not saying that you should come across as if you don't care but if in your head you are relaxed, they'll see that come through rather than someone who gets nervous or stressed too easily.
