I had two interviews with Grant Thornton; - The first interview was with the Head of People and Culture. This interview was focused around how I was the right candidate for the job. - The second interview was with the Head of Audit and Assurance. This interview was more of a casual nature and was focused around me as an individual, my career aspirations and my hobbies.

I was hired as a vacationer initially in my penultimate year of university. I can't quite remember the whole process in great detail, but I had to send in a cover letter and resume, answer some online questions, do an online personality test, a video interview, and then finally attend an assessment centre which had a team challenge and one-on-one interviews with a director/partner/manager.

The interview process was excellent, the testing prior to attaining employment didn't feel like an exam, it was testing on soft-skills and placing importance on that as well.

Research well into Grant Thornton and its values, as well as the service line for which you are applying for.

Research first the company you are applying for, and make sure you know how to answer why do you want to work for that company and specific area you are applying for. It is very important to try to identify the kind of candidates the company is looking for and demonstrate that you have the relevant skills for the position applied.

Settle in, this is a long process; have multiple lines out for different firms & roles. You'll get what you do best. Practice everything before the assessed quiz/interview. Side note, GT doesn't just hire academics, if you've real-world skills, related or not, and can prove ability, you'll get far.
