Job Application Top Tips

Job Application Top Tips

KPMG believes that process of applying should be as easy as we can make it.

Use our Self Selection Questionnaires to help you decide which area is right for you

We have to be honest. There’s a lot of competition for graduate opportunities at KPMG and not everyone gets offered a job. As you’d expect, our standards are high. We do believe, however, that the process of applying should be as easy as we can make it. 

As we recruit on a first come, first served basis, we recommend that you apply as soon as you know which programme you’d like to join.

Our top tips are: 

Tip 1

Apply as soon as you've decided which area interests you most, and use our Self Selection Questionnaires to help you decide. We don't have deadlines. So once we've filled all the positions in a particular area we'll stop recruiting for it. 

Tip 2 

Give your application form enough time and attention to make sure you provide all the information we need. Your application form will be read by a member of our recruitment team, so make sure you've spent some time ensuring the information you're asked to provide is correct. 

Tip 3 

Practise and research – where practise tests are available, take them. Read up on our recruitment process on our website, and think about examples from your experience that you can use.  

Tip 4 

There are certain key behaviours that we look for in our graduates, so it’s worth keeping these in mind throughout the process, as we assess against them. 

Tip 5 

Find out about us too. The process is two-way and gives you the opportunity to see if KPMG is right for you, so make sure you research our business thoroughly.
