    4/5

  • 3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

    3/5

  • The assessment day was particularly important to me- it will put me in good stead for future interviews

    4/5

    4/5

  • 8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?
  • Not very much- we did a lot of listening and not much realistic deal advisory work. We did get an insight into what employees do day to day at the firm

    3/5

  • 9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?
  • As it was focussed on women in deal advisory, I could tell that KPMG are trying to be as inclusive as possible and thus are trying to be a diverse culture.

    5/5

  • 10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?
  • I have decided to follow up upon this and pursue a career in deal advisory, or any role at kpmg

    3/5

    3/5
