Thanks a million to everyone that has commented on this post. It has been very helpful. But one thing that no one seem to be asking is that if you eventually get into KPMG, do KPMG pay graduate trainee? And how much?

As funny as the question may sound... It's very important too.

its actually a funny question. What do u mean by do they pay? Is it not a job? And for how much dey pay grad trainee, it shd be abt 124 to 140K net pay per month, plus 13th month which is abt 30K or more (cos its prorated) paid in december,leave allowance of about N110K paid in april, dressing allowance of 80K paid in august and ur bonus paid in d next financial yr in feb/march of say 300K....PwC pays better.

Hi,

I'v always thought everyone irrespective of venue, department, etc writes essay.

Kindly clarify, thanks and regards.

Cc Emanehi
Cc abbeywasc

Like Habillion said, if its paper based test (which is d format when u take d test in KPMG), u write d gmat and essay but when its computer based, then d system is programmed so d candidate sees his result immediately so only dose who are successful wait to write d essay.

Audit

I would suggest you keep in touch with persons who are currently on d recruitment process with u so u can get feedback 4rm dose who do dia interview b4 u...some likely interview questions include, introduce urself/tell me abt urself, y do u want 2 work in audit esp if ure not an accounting graduate, u av to be able 2 validate all d sweet tings u wrote on ur CV..so if u said ure a team player or u av good analytical skills, b ready 2 defend dat. If ure an accounting graduate, be ready 2 answer accounting questions, so dust ur books and read wella. Even if u studied anoda course, still dust ur books..cos d person interviewin u may av studied d same ting and wld want 2 check if u rily made dat 2.1 or 1st class.be familiar wit economic issues and general happenings in d country, make sure u undastand what an auditor actually does cos some pple don't. Know ur selling points. Know y u want 2 work 4 KPMG. And above all, be confident and pray.

Hello, pls is it possible to reschedule the KPMG test? Or would they feel the applicant is not serious about working with them? I sent them a mail for rescheduling enquiries and they sent an automatic reply saying i should await the next date when decided. What happens now? But wait...can I still write the test on the previous date if I decide not to reschedule again before the new date is announced?

u can reschedule the test. Call HR on 07034036313 or 08129114480.

Hello Emanehi. You are so helpful here. Thankyou.
I chose audit but I'm considering changing to MC. pls do you know any one on the thread you can refer me to in MC? Or maybe if am not able to change can you please tell me what to expect in the AC for Audit?

I don't know anyone on the thread I can refer u to. Of course, u can change to MC bt bear in mind dat MC is very competitive. Basically, d main highlights of d assessment centre for MC is a group work wia u will solve a business case and someone presents 4 d group. U can google such cases online. U wld also av interview and u wld be asked 2 speak on a topic for 5 mins. The assessment centre for audit involves diagrammatic tests, interview and a group work wia u solve a form of riddle. U can't prepare 4 d riddle, dey re looking out 4 ur team spirit. If u want 2 change 2 MC, call HR. All the best.

aiite, my bad. should have chosen audit too but went for what I loved. how's the experience in audit? I always loved dt building sha but it wasn't meant to be.

Eeyah. U should have chosen audit. One of my colleagues just moved from audit to forensic at the end of our first year. U might have been able to do that. Audit is cool ooo. We work long hours sometimes but I am learning a lot. I have nice teammates as well. So far, so good.

Abbeywasc and Emanehi, please does the Business awareness test (BAT) count as an "Aptitude" test? Cos I did BAT for IARCS but got a regret mail.

Can I still apply to other vacancies? Thanks

Hmmm, there was no business awareness test in my time ooo. But of course, if u get a regret mail at any point in the recruitment process, then you can't apply for any vacancy until you have gained sufficient experience to apply for an experienced hire position. Keep applying for other jobs. Good luck.

[quote author=ALVA001 post=411943invitedmanehi, and thanks 4 d constant headsup u give ere. Here is my question. I wrote kpmh test abt a yr ago,somethng apund and i wasn't in d right mood so I wasn't successful, despite d instruction, i applied again ds yr. What do you think. I have a feeling i might be invited 4 d test. If so should i yield and write it or just 4gt it and nt waste my tym[/quote]


Hmmm, wait to see if you will be invited first. If u are, u try ur luck again. But they likely have d records of those who wrote last year and may screen out such persons. But no harm in trying.

hi, I applied for forensics.....any helpful tips please??

the recruitment process for forensic should be somtin like dis-Assessment centre, manager interview and then partner interview.
I got this from last yr's thread:
abbeywasc:
for forensic, ITA, FRM and IARCS only
three stages
stage one : getting to know you. just tell dem ur name, school, state of origin, discipline, interest, and skills. two minutes tops(my advice). answer as succintly as u can any oda question u are asked. dnt waste dia time.
stage two: group case. u will be given an hypothetical case to review, analyse and provide solutions to. in fifteen minutes. den one of u will present in 5 minutes.
ds stage is a bit tricky. converse among ur group member b4 u are called. preselect ur group leader b4 entering. u may look at d followin xtics
discipline ( accounting or related course)
spoken english
dressing
confidence
note: dnt compete negatively i.e dnt take ur group members as ur competitors
speak out, contribute reasonably(dnt talk for talking sake) and be willin to hear ur colleagues opinion. etc try to be active
stage three: individual presentation in five minutes
topics: contemporary issues like insurgency, same sex marriage, unemployment etc. just give ur oponion for or against in 5 mimutes.
my advice: say something sensible in three minutes and stop talkin. chances are u will start blabbing after dt time especially if its a topic u knw little about. maintain eye contact and smile a bit.
most importantly, be well dressed
comb ur hair, get a good suit, use perfume moderately, where a plain or striped shirt( max of two colors) same for d tie. good shoes etc
ur appearance matters a lot
overall, be calm, u cant lose wat u dnt av in d first place.
one love.

This is for assessment centre

What about Advisory? Read on Nairaland thread that it's the business consulting division. Provides business consulting services to firms and entrepreneurs. True? Thanks.

Yes, true. Advisory is divided into 3 depts/sub-divisions: Management consulting, deal advisory and risk consulting. Under risk consulting, we have several units- FRM ( financial risk mgt), forensic, IARCS (internal audit, risk and compliance services) and Technology Advisory. U can find out more on KPMG website.

Can someone apply for Audit without any Accounting background?

Yes, of course. Sometimes the people from other backgrounds make the best auditors. KPMG will teach you everything. Infact, all new hires in KPMG (even HR) go thru a basic accounting course. Then you have continuous trainings in your individual units. You have annual audit trainings. In the 4th yr, the training is done in South Africa. Plus you learn on the job and you do ICAN/ACCA. At the end of your first year, you take a competency test which captures the aspect of accounting/auditing you should know. If you pass, you get promoted. Only very few fail as each unit would organise series of revision classes. In fact, by your third/fourth year, you should be a team lead. You sit with CFOs and Finance managers to discuss accounting issues. You will be surprised at what you would have learnt in accounting.

What about Finance and Account Department?

You know anything about that?

Accounts department is a very small unit within KPMG and I dont even know how they recruit. But if you want to apply for a graduate position where you can gain accounting experience, then apply to audit. Audit takes a lot more graduates..up to 80 or more every year, so u stand a greater chance if you can perform well during the recruitment process.

Hi everyone,

The interview was good, lasted just over an hour about 70 mins...the interviewer was nice but very professional.
All I did basically was give scenarios regarding the various attributes he asked about...mostly about challenges faced and how I was able to over come them because of something I did.

Can't say how well I did cos results is all that matter but I felt pretty good after the interview.

Regarding it being impromptu, it wasn't. Got a call on Wednesday, interview was scheduled for Friday morning.

I don't know anything about the recruitment process...didn't do anything special...basically submitted my application and went on with my life...I suggest we all do the same. if you get called prepare hard and do your best...if you don't move on...there's no point trying to figure out timelines and what not.

Stay positive...stay hopeful...keep moving.
Ciao!

Thanks for the info. All the best. Did you apply to technical or commercial? And what dept did u select during the online application?
