Let's get into those KPMG interview questions and top scoring answers. The first interview question we need to prepare for is, tell me about yourself? This is pretty much guaranteed to be the first question at your KPMG interview. My tip for answering this is, in your response to this first interview question, refer to the KPMG behavioral capabilities and the relevant experience you have the will enable you to perform highly in the role. Here is my suggested answer. “I am highly motivated, professional, I possess exceptional attention to detail skills and I am determined to only work for the best organizations within the industry. I enjoy collaborating with other people, both internally and externally, and I have the experience necessary to provide outstanding service to all clients on a consistent basis. I genuinely want my employer to succeed, and I know the only way that will happen, is if I utilize professionalism in all of my work, I grab all business opportunities that come my way, and I also always insist on the highest standards achievable in all of my work and that of my colleagues. I feel strongly that, if you hire me in this position with KPMG, I will be able to make an immediate positive impact to the team and the organization as a whole.” That is a confident, positive answer that helps get you off on the right footing for the remainder of your interview. The next KPMG interview question we want to prepare for is, why do you want to work for KPMG? Again, I can pretty much guarantee this will come up, probably early on in your interview. So we need to give a genuine, solid answer that demonstrates passionate reasons why you want to work for this fantastic organization. In my opinion, KPMG is one of the best organizations in the world, so we shouldn't have too much difficulty in coming up with a really great, valid, genuine reason why we want to work for them. Here is my suggested answer. “The reasons I want to work for KPMG are literally endless. However, the key attraction for me is the fact you have been supporting businesses now for over 150 years, and any business that can grow and thrive for that length of time is remarkable. You clearly support your employees to be the best they can be, and I only want to work for an organization that has the most talented people within it. I want to grow my career with KPMG, and the fact that so many people within KPMG volunteer to work in communities each year says a lot about your credibility, your high standards, your values and your ethics. Finally, diversity of talent is clearly a crucial part of your success, and I like the fact there will be so many other people to learn from within the company. Although I believe I am highly competent in my work, I am always open to learning and developing and feel KMPG will be an amazing organization to work for.” That's a great answer to that question… Why do you want to work for KPMG? I still have a number of questions to run through. However, if you want to download my full set of 30 Big Four Accounting Firm interview questions and top-scoring answers, if you CLICK THE LINK in the top right hand corner of the video, it takes you through to my website PassMyInterview.com. All of the answers to the questions on there are to the same standard as what I'm covering right now during this tutorial. The next KPMG interview question we need to prepare for is, describe a situation where you were given performance feedback from your manager? Describe a situation where you were given performance feedback from your manager. This KPMG interview question is assessing two things, basically whether or not you have received feedback and secondly, how you respond to that feedback. So we don't want to be responding to this interview question by saying… “I've never had feedback from a manager.” We need to have had feedback and responded to it positively. Here's my answer: “In a previous role, I received bi-annual appraisal feedback from my immediate supervisor. I always viewed these sessions as an opportunity to see how I was developing from an organizational perspective, and also how I could continue to improve within my role. During my last appraisal, my manager identified a specific training need. Whilst dealing with clients, I was not seizing the opportunity to offer the organizations additional services and products, and as such, I was not contributing to the financial success of the business. Upon her advice, I attended an in-depth sales techniques training course over a two week period. This proved to be an excellent course as I was then able to implement my techniques with clients moving forward, and therefore help the company to grow financially.” That situation shows that you are intelligent and smart enough to take on board feedback, use it to your advantage and then help the organization to grow and develop. And that's the important thing when responding to that question. The next KPMG interview question I want you to prepare for is: describe a time when you had to make a difficult decision? My advice is to give a work SPECIFIC situation whereby you had to make a tough and challenging decision. And this KPMG interview question assesses your ability to make tough decisions when needed in the best interests of your employer. Let's look at a great answer to this interview question. “I was responsible for the business needs of a client whilst working in a previous role and I experienced some issues with them on a regular basis. The client was continually putting pressure on me to cut corners with a view to saving them money. I was always resilient whilst dealing with them and I continually refused to cut any corners despite their constant requests. I personally work to high standards, and whilst I will always bend over backwards to help a client by delivering excellent service, I will not break the rules. Things came to a head one day when they asked me to do something that was unethical, and so I decided to let them go and politely declined any of their business moving forward. Although this cost our company from a financial perspective, I felt it was important to maintain our standards and stick to our operating principles and values.” That's a really good example where I've made a really difficult decision at work, because it's cost the company financially. However, I believe it's really important to stick to the company's values and the principles and also follow rules and regulations. The next question of our KPMG interview preparation is: give an example of a time you had to work with a difficult person? How we work with others will effectively determine how successful the team is. Whilst we will normally be able to get on with everybody in a team, there will be times when we clash or disagree with someone. So let's show the interview or we are professional by always putting the needs of the team and the organization first in our answer. Here we go. “To be honest, I get on with ninety nine percent of people. Having said that, I do understand you can't always get on with everyone, but you must always try to. When I first started in a previous role, one of the more senior members of the team clearly took a dislike to me for some reason. Although I tried speaking to him and asking him for advice, he wasn't interested. After a few days of being in the role, I decided to ask him politely in private whether I was doing anything to offend him. Simply by having that conversation with him changed everything. Moving forward, he was extremely helpful, and we actually became good friends both inside and outside of work. In this type of situation, I would always put the organization first, try my hardest to get on with someone as I know this can only be beneficial to the organization as a whole.” That shows that you are mature, you accept that sometimes you can't get on with everybody, but you will try and you'll be professional and you'll put the organization first.
