A job interview is the first big step in your career. You’re not just looking for a job — you’re launching .yourself on a lifelong journey. With so much at stake, the interview process can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. If you go in adequately prepared, you’ll be able to communicate your skills, achievements, motivations, potential and career objectives to the interviewer in a confident, clear and articulate manner. We’ve prepared this guide to help you to get succed in your interview process.

The interview should be a two-way dialogue between you and the interviewer. A company’s recruiting brochure and your resumÃ© provide important background information, but the interview allows both you and the employer to dig deeper. The interviewer will try to determine your skills, abilities and personal attributes, and how they relate to the job. You should be prepared to demonstrate your qualifications for the position. A well-preparedpresentation — supported by facts and examples — can create a very favourable impression.

Structure and content Most interviews follow the same basic structure, regardless of who conducts them. Depending on the type of interview being conducted, however, the time may vary from 25 to 60 minutes.

Phase I: Introduction (2–3 minutes)

The introduction helps establish a rapport. The interviewer wants you to be relaxed so that you’ll talk freely. After the personal introductions, the interviewer will often begin by outlining what will take place during the interview.

Phase II: Employer questions 20–35 minutes The evaluation process begins in Phase II. The interviewer will be evaluating your skills, abilities and other qualities that satisfy the requirement of the position. Interviewers’ styles will vary, and so will their questions and interviewing experience. The types of interviews they conduct may also vary.

Interview Tip: In evaluating your interpersonal skills, the interviewer may want to know how you dealt with a particularly challenging assignment or frustrating person. The interviewer will keep asking probing questions to get a detailed understanding of the situation, your actions and the result.

Phase III: Evaluation

During the evaluation process, the interviewer will likely concentrate on the competencies and qualities that will satisfy the requirements of the position.

These may include the following:

• Technical skills and abilities

• Client-service focus

• Leadership

• Flexibility

• Teamwork

• Motivation and initiative

• Communication skills

• Intellectual competence

In addition, employer questions will focus on such topics as education, relevant experience and career goals.

Phase IV: Your questions (5–6 minutes)

This phase of the interview process is just as important as your ability to answer the employer’s questions. Each question you ask should seek important information necessary for you to make your decision. Remember — the interviewer’s evaluation of you continues throughout the interview, so be prepared to do more than just “ask questions.” Well-thought-out questions will send the employer the message that you’re preparedand interested in information beyond basic recruiting literature. At this stage, the most important questions you can ask will focus on the responsibilities of the position, career path, advancement, and further information about the organization that will help you evaluate it from the viewpoint of a prospective employee. A good rule of thumb is to enquire about areas of real interest to you.

Phase V: Close (2–3 minutes)

The last phase in the process is the “close.” Typically, at this point, the employer will ask whether you have any final questions, review what will happen next and end the interview. This can be a good opportunity to emphasize your interest in the position or make a final statement about your qualifications.

Phase VI: Follow-up

If you’re successful in your interview, you may be offered the job, or you could be called back for more interviewing. At Ernst & Young, a successful interview will result in an offer of employment and an invitation to visit the office. So it’s important to be prepared after your interview is complete. Taking notes immediately will give you a good start. Include a summary of major points discussed during the interview and points for follow-up during your decision making process.

Interview Tip:

By telling detailed stories examples, you’ll become more memorable to the interviewer.

You can do it:

The best strategy for interviewing success includes advance preparation and effective communication. Prior to the interview, analyze what information you’ll need to present about yourself, prepare a clear statement of your career goals, know sufficient facts about the employer, and understand the qualities the employer is looking for. Being well prepared will impress the interviewer because it will be evident that you’ve spent time thinking about how your accomplishments will help you achieve success in the future. Effective communication is more than simply responding to one question after another. Be familiar with the type of interviewing style that’s used in the interview. Recognize how the interviewer’s questions interrelate, and the importance of supporting your qualifications with facts and examples about yourself. By following these strategies, you should be well prepared for all interviews — even the most challenging. Good luck!

Normally the interview process starts with you submitting the profile form in Ernst and Young careers portal. If your profile gets shortlisted, you will receive a call or e-mail with all the information regarding the Written test date and telephonic interview date and Technical,HR interview dates.

A job interview is the first big step in your career. You’re not just looking for a job — you’re launching .yourself on a lifelong journey. With so much at stake, the interview process can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. If you go in adequately prepared, you’ll be able to communicate your skills, achievements, motivations, potential and career objectives to the interviewer in a confident, clear and articulate manner. We’ve prepared this guide to help you to get succed in your interview process.

The interview should be a two-way dialogue between you and the interviewer. A company’s recruiting brochure and your resumÃ© provide important background information, but the interview allows both you and the employer to dig deeper. The interviewer will try to determine your skills, abilities and personal attributes, and how they relate to the job. You should be prepared to demonstrate your qualifications for the position. A well-preparedpresentation — supported by facts and examples — can create a very favourable impression.

Structure and content Most interviews follow the same basic structure, regardless of who conducts them. Depending on the type of interview being conducted, however, the time may vary from 25 to 60 minutes.

Phase I: Introduction (2–3 minutes)

The introduction helps establish a rapport. The interviewer wants you to be relaxed so that you’ll talk freely. After the personal introductions, the interviewer will often begin by outlining what will take place during the interview.

Phase II: Employer questions 20–35 minutes The evaluation process begins in Phase II. The interviewer will be evaluating your skills, abilities and other qualities that satisfy the requirement of the position. Interviewers’ styles will vary, and so will their questions and interviewing experience. The types of interviews they conduct may also vary.

Interview Tip: In evaluating your interpersonal skills, the interviewer may want to know how you dealt with a particularly challenging assignment or frustrating person. The interviewer will keep asking probing questions to get a detailed understanding of the situation, your actions and the result.

Phase III: Evaluation

During the evaluation process, the interviewer will likely concentrate on the competencies and qualities that will satisfy the requirements of the position.

These may include the following:

• Technical skills and abilities

• Client-service focus

• Leadership

• Flexibility

• Teamwork

• Motivation and initiative

• Communication skills

• Intellectual competence

In addition, employer questions will focus on such topics as education, relevant experience and career goals.

Phase IV: Your questions (5–6 minutes)

This phase of the interview process is just as important as your ability to answer the employer’s questions. Each question you ask should seek important information necessary for you to make your decision. Remember — the interviewer’s evaluation of you continues throughout the interview, so be prepared to do more than just “ask questions.” Well-thought-out questions will send the employer the message that you’re preparedand interested in information beyond basic recruiting literature. At this stage, the most important questions you can ask will focus on the responsibilities of the position, career path, advancement, and further information about the organization that will help you evaluate it from the viewpoint of a prospective employee. A good rule of thumb is to enquire about areas of real interest to you.

Phase V: Close (2–3 minutes)

The last phase in the process is the “close.” Typically, at this point, the employer will ask whether you have any final questions, review what will happen next and end the interview. This can be a good opportunity to emphasize your interest in the position or make a final statement about your qualifications.

Phase VI: Follow-up

If you’re successful in your interview, you may be offered the job, or you could be called back for more interviewing. At Ernst & Young, a successful interview will result in an offer of employment and an invitation to visit the office. So it’s important to be prepared after your interview is complete. Taking notes immediately will give you a good start. Include a summary of major points discussed during the interview and points for follow-up during your decision making process.

Interview Tip:

By telling detailed stories examples, you’ll become more memorable to the interviewer.

You can do it:

The best strategy for interviewing success includes advance preparation and effective communication. Prior to the interview, analyze what information you’ll need to present about yourself, prepare a clear statement of your career goals, know sufficient facts about the employer, and understand the qualities the employer is looking for. Being well prepared will impress the interviewer because it will be evident that you’ve spent time thinking about how your accomplishments will help you achieve success in the future. Effective communication is more than simply responding to one question after another. Be familiar with the type of interviewing style that’s used in the interview. Recognize how the interviewer’s questions interrelate, and the importance of supporting your qualifications with facts and examples about yourself. By following these strategies, you should be well prepared for all interviews — even the most challenging. Good luck!
