Application Advice:

Think about the reasons why you really want to apply for this role, why is PA the best choice for you, what makes you a great candidate for PA and make sure you reflect that in your Cover Letter.
Tailor your CV for the job you are applying to, do not send just a general CV that you send to other companies.
Ensure that you outline your extra-curricular activites as well throughout your application as these will portray more who you are.

Interview Advice:

Telephone Interview: For me these included a series of questions where I had to show that I had previously developed some skills which were required in the job description. It is important to read carefully the job description as it will probably help you anticipate some of these questions.
1-2-1 Interview: my experience was great. It was the best interview I ever had. I felt as if the interviewer was actually interested in me as a person, outside my academic achievements. I ended up talking about my hobbies too, which I believe can show a lot about your personality and whether you fit with the company culture.

Group Exercise: The best way to prepare for this is to go through some mock group exercises if you have this option at uni. If not perhaps ask some friends to help you go through some group exercises you may find online. It is worth having such an experience under a tight deadline, so that you know what to expect. It is important to be collaborative, to show your ideas and to respect others ideas even though they are different than yours, perhaps you can build on them and even create a new idea.

Case study exercise: From the beginning, it is important to clearly state your view and the main arguments you have for explaining your view. Then re-introduce each argument and further explain it. Finally, summarise your view and the three arguments you just presented. Also, be prepared for being challenged, it is a typical experience you can encounter on client site.

Analyst, ITA at PA Consulting Group

Application Advice:

Spent a lot of time researching PA and tailor your CV and Cover Letter towards PA's mission statements. If possible seek out current PA graduates for conversations. If you get to an interview stage, don't worry about having stacks of extra curricular university activites, I didn't and I got the job - just make sure you are confident, friendly, ambitious and open to being challenged.

Interview Advice:

The phone interview is competency based, so make sure you have read up on PA, and have a series of solid, well thought out answers on why you actually want the job. Be prepared to answer questions about where you see yourself in the future, and what drives you. PA appreciates honesty and ambition a great deal.

The assessment centre and partner interviews test your understanding of how PA operates to a greater extent. This is mainly to see whether you will be a good fit and have the mentality to suceed in a fast paced, results based consultancy firm.

Application Advice:

PA is a very open and honest organisation so my only advice would be to be yourself. Try to highlight the strengths you can bring to PA and do some reading around the industry or area you are applying for. However, you won't be expected to be an expert.

Interview Advice:

I was asked various compentency questions, for example: if you had some data you were working on for a client that was crucial to the end result of the project and you discovered it was low quality. What would you do?

The other questions focused around what I had done at university, any previous experience and other more general questions just getting to know me as a person.
