How to Get Hired
We asked KPMG LLP for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
KPMG actively seeks out people from different backgrounds, with a wide range of perspectives and experiences. Our strong commitment to creating an inclusive working environment made up of high-performing people means we recruit and retain a truly diverse range of professionals.
So what exactly are we looking for when we recruit new people? Naturally, we seek those with good technical skills, problem-solving abilities, intellectual curiosity and excellent communication skills. We're also looking for people who and purpose-driven, take pride in what they do and act with integrity — those who are compatible with our core values and are good team players, with the capacity to build effective relationships, learn from experience, and bring out the best in others. And, in an era where business and economic circumstances ebb and flow, we seek those who are flexible and comfortable with change, passionate about client service, and proactive by nature.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
For experienced candidates: It is important to impress your recruiter since he/she is the first point of contact for candidates. Prepare a solid resume, capture your achievements, certifications, and career goals. Be sure to tailor your resume to the position you are applying to. Once you have this, be sure to prepare for the phone interview, be professional, be on time, and be sure to find a quiet space to take the call with a reliable phone connection.
For campus recruits: Do your homework. Come to KPMG hosted on-campus events with a good understanding of who we are and why your education and skills are a good match for our entry level opportunities. Introduce yourself to our professionals and get to know them and why they joined KPMG. When preparing for your interview, think about how your varied experiences demonstrate skills needed in the public accounting and consulting world.
