The application process for the Graduate Programme

The typical process to become a graduate - what you need to upload: 

  1. CV
  2. Cover Letter
  3. Diploma and grade transcript
  4. Feel free to include additional documents, if you find them relevant (not required) 

We will review the applications on an on-going basis. You will receive a call when you are invited for an interview.

The first interview is mostly to get to know you better and to see if there is a match.

For the second interview, you have to prepare a logic and personality test. Some departments will also ask you to prepare a case at home or during the interview.

You will always receive a phone call from the interviewer, whether it is good or bad news.

In both cases, we will make sure that we provide you with relevant feedback.

When you have finalised the process, you will receive a call where we potentially offer you a contract.

The Graduate Programme starts once a year, after the summer vacation. It starts with a one-week trip to get an introduction to KPMG and the relevant skills you need to start your career.

The trip also contains a lot of fun team events and dinners to make sure you have networking throughout KPMG from day 1.

What do our Graduates say?

That really compelled me to join KPMG, because it showed me that KPMG is not afraid to do something new.

Graduate, Ragnar

I read you will have your own performance manager, who will help you guide your career. That's awesome because I don't know how to guide my career.

Graduate, Luca

I was really drawn to the KPMG Graduate Programme due to the focus on professional and personal development, and because you can be yourself.

Graduate, Katrine

You don't have to have a typical consulting background, if that even exists nowadays. We strive for diversity as opposed to one size fits all.
