Find out about our graduate selection process, from applications to offers.

Learning about KPMG and completing the online application is the first stage in the selection process. Below we have provided you with some information on the stages between deciding to apply and receiving a job offer.

1. Application phase

Once you've decided to apply for a career with KPMG, you can apply online. You’ll receive a confirmation on submission of your application. If you do not receive this, please email gradrecruiting@kpmg.com.au. While we are reviewing your application we ask that you complete our online abilities assessments.

2. Abilities assessments

Once you’ve submitted your application online, you’ll be invited to complete some online assessments. These game-based assessments are designed to obtain an understanding of your ability to evaluate and make decisions based on different information. These assessments will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete and can be taken from any computer. We ask that you complete these assessments within 48 hours, as they are required in order to progress your application to the next stage of our selection process. You will receive further information via email before you complete them.

After you complete the game-based assessments, you will then be asked to complete a short values inventory. The values inventory is designed to get an idea of how you best work and there is no right or wrong response with this inventory.

3. Video interview

After you’ve successfully completed our online assessments, we will send you a link to complete a video interview. The video interview won’t be longer than around 5 minutes. We’ll ask you to answer a few questions about yourself using an online video interview tool. Don’t worry, the questions aren’t tricky (and you get the chance to practice using the video tool beforehand). This will give us a chance to ‘virtually’ meet you and understand more about your motivations for applying to KPMG and the particular business group you’ve expressed an interest in.

4. Final stage – information session and final interview

The final stage of our recruitment process involves you coming into one of our offices for an information session and panel interview. You’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your talents in a friendly and relaxed environment. You’ll also hear from our recent graduates, find out more about the benefits of working at KPMG and have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about our process and programs.

Your interview will be behavioural-based with a partner or director and a senior manager or manager from the business group you’ve expressed interest in. This interview will last approximately 45 minutes and allow us to find out more about you, and for you to ask questions about us. Your interviewers will ask you questions about your life, your time at school and/or university, your extra-curricular activities and any work experience you’ve acquired.

5. Our offer

If you're successful at the final stage of our process you’ll be contacted by KPMG and a written offer of employment will be forwarded to you. If you have any questions about our offer, or about working at KPMG, then we encourage you to talk to your local Graduate Recruitment Consultant.
