EY job simulation
If you complete the online assessment stage successfully you will be invited to move on to the job simulation. This stage aims to explore your individual strengths, and how good a fit you are for the EY role or programme you have applied for.
The job simulation consists of 14 questions based on real workplace scenarios you may come across while working at EY. For some questions you will be asked to rank possible responses in order; others will require written answers and two of the questions will involve recording your answer via video. Some questions will have a time limit, while others will not.
All together, this section should take you about an hour to complete and you must do it all in one sitting.
As you will be recording some of your answers, you should make sure you are dressed appropriately and that you are in a room with good lighting and free from background distractions.
You will be given a practice round to get used to recording yourself, but when it comes to the actual questions you will not be able to re-record your answers.
After completing this stage, EY will give you detailed feedback on the strengths you displayed and how you could develop these further.
EY Experience Day (assessment centre)
The EY Experience Day – which may also be referred to as the assessment centre – is the penultimate stage of the application process. This is a day of exercises, activities and interviews designed to assess your strengths and qualities, and also for you to get a taste of life at EY.
EY group exercise
During the experience day, candidates will be split into groups of four and given a package of information about a work-related task or scenario. You will have 15 minutes to read through the information on your own, then 30 minutes to discuss what you have read and how you should approach the situation with the rest of the group.
You will be assessed on how you work as part of a team, so you should listen to the other candidates and respond to their comments and suggestions respectfully. But also make your own voice heard, and take the opportunity to display leadership skills wherever you can.
EY case study
In this task you will be provided with information about a fictional company that needs to make some difficult business decisions, along with extra documents and materials relevant to the task. You will then have 30 minutes to go through all the information, analyse the situation and come up with a recommended plan of action.
At the end of the task you must present your findings and recommendations to the EY assessors, who will ask you questions about how you have approached the case study. For this task you will need to be able to work quickly to find the key issues in the documents.
EY partner interviews
These may be scheduled for the start or end of your experience day, or on another date. The interviews usually last about 25 minutes and the questions are strength-based.
As such, you may be asked about significant achievements, how you approach tasks, what you like doing in your spare time and what motivates you.
