To prepare I'd recommend thinking about answers to some generic behavioural questions, and picking out examples that make you excited to talk about. E.g. you might talk about your experience volunteering when you are asked about teamwork.
Attend networking events prior to application to understand the internal structure, and where the team actually fits.
Practice with online tests prior to taking the actual one
Talk about what you do outside of work and study - people want to know about your other interests!
Study EY and prepare for situational based questions.
Understand EY values and vision, be able to explain how they align with your values and articulate what you are looking for. Prepare a "better question"
Be yourself, don't be too scared of the process.
Meet with partners and other staff and ask about what they do and what their interests/sector focuses are and try to align yourself with a team who does what you are interested in.
Think of every behavioural question you could possibly be asked and write down an answer to each in the STAR method. Practise answering these questions aloud so you get used to the interview style. Don't memorise the answers unless you're able to present them in a believable and non robotic way.
I would advise candidates to research the operating model of the company, the type of work that their chosen area performs, and growth areas that the company are investing in for the future. This information can be found via online forums, Glassdoor, talking to current employees, news articles, and company publications (check their social media and websites).
Research EY and know the company before the interview
Practice situational questions and online behavioural assessments. Research the company and the industry
Be your authentic self
Candidates can best prepare by learning as much as they can about the team they are applying for. Also understanding your own drive and career motivations.
Show you are actually interested in the service line you are trying to get in to. When it comes to the interview, just be yourself and show you're social/able to talk to people and be a team player
Be a good team player, make sure you're a person that's approachable and easy to talk to.
Don't assume that because you are still in university, that you are not qualified or experienced enough for the role. You aren't expected to start your career knowing everything.
Be prepared for tough questions and know why you want to work there.
understand the team and what they do, read any news articles in the press about the work,
Prepare to respond in the STAR format, pulling on your relevant experience. Have LOTS of examples ready to go.
