Interview: Tips & Advice

2018

"You will need to pass numerical and verbal reasoning tests, so you should be confident in these areas. You should have a genuine interest in becoming a chartered accountant and an understanding of the type of work Dixon Wilson does."
Graduate, London
"The application process includes an assessment centre where maths, verbal reasoning and letter writing tests are taken and an interview is conducted if you pass the tests. This is then followed by an interview with one of the partners. I would advise finding practise tests online before the assessment day and reading up about the company, the qualification and the basic workings of accountancy before the interview."
Graduate, London
"The interview can be quite technical so know about accounts, audit and tax because you can get asked questions on any of them. The social culture is big here so it doesn't hurt to mention how you like to get involved in things."
Graduate, London
"Try to remain relaxed during the process. Standard interview preparations are required but there's nothing particularly daunting. You'll want to make sure you're capable of doing arithmetic and verbal paper tests. They're not particularly challenging but you'll probably want to practise techniques."
