We like to walk-the-talk at KPMG and we figure our future grads will too.
That’s why our recruitment process is based on a practical, live challenge called Ace the Case. You’ll get to demonstrate how you go about solving problems, critically analysing information, performing under pressure and working as part of a team.
Ace the Case is an enjoyable and social experience. It’s also a fantastic learning opportunity.
On day one: A KPMG team will help you plan, write, and debrief a case and give you tips on case presentation skills. You’re then assigned into a group and given a case to analyse – one that’s based on an actual business scenario.
On day two: The following day, your group will present their case before a judging panel and your peers. To wrap up, we celebrate with a cocktail party.
It’s free to enter, and we’ll pay your travel costs if you’re coming from out of town.
AUCKLAND - Friday 5th and Saturday 6th of April for students interested in working in our Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga offices.
WELLINGTON - Friday 5th and Saturday 6th of April for students interested in working in our Wellington and Christchurch offices.
“I was one of the fortunate few from the University of Otago to get selected for the 2011 Ace the Case competition that KPMG hosted in Dunedin during October 2011.
The competition itself is a brilliant idea and you learn a lot. But one of the most important things about Ace the Case is the opportunity to get your foot-in-the-door with KPMG.
The great thing is the application procedure to get accepted for Ace the Case is how KPMG now recruits its graduates and summer interns, so you know you have an excellent opportunity to get offered an internship or even a graduate role.”
Ben Adams, KPMG Summer Intern.
