Who are you?
The Boy Scouts know it and so should you: the best way to begin any venture is to be prepared. Branding U begins with information about what knowledge, skills and qualities potential employers (including KPMG) are looking for in new employees. Find out why a global perspective is highly valued. The primary importance of a strong academic record. How demonstrable leadership experience can help you stand out in an interview. We’ll also talk about why you should spend some time getting ready to answer questions about your desired work focus and location. To make sure you can align your strengths and career goals with what companies are looking to hire, let’s prepare to present - you!
So what exactly are we looking for when we recruit new people? Naturally, we want you to have good technical skills, problem-solving abilities and commercial focus. We're also looking for people with a lot of integrity - good team workers who can build effective relationships, learn from experience and bring out the best in others. Here are some specifics of what KPMG is looking for:
Now that you know what we are looking for, it is time for you to reflect on yourself and know your strengths. The Branding U toolkit, located to the right of this page, contains tools to help you brand yourself. Use the Self Assessment Worksheet to help you do a self analysis and prepare you to sell yourself. You should also take the time to review your resume to see if it reflects your strengths and skills that employers are looking for. Our "Resume Tips" located in the toolkit can help you do just that.
In addition to the toolkit, visit the Employee Career Architecture (ECA) section of our website. ECA allows you to use the interactive Career Path mapping tool, provides snapshots of many roles at KPMG, and shares in-depth guidance and resources designed to help you explore your career options.
