EY - How to write a resume

Accounting test

The accounting questions assess basic financial accounting knowledge (such as an understanding of financial statements and basic concepts and principles of financial accounting – accounting for sales, fixed assets, inventories, receivables, liabilities and other accounts, the ability to analyze and propose adjusting entries, etc.). The amount of points given for each question is dependent upon their complexity (i.e. more complex problems will be worth more points).

1. Be careful with your calculations, even if you are using a calculator. Make sure to account for dates when answering questions, as accounting problems are often about timing and calculating numbers based on dates. Pay attention to what the question is actually asking, and try to leave time at the end for reviewing your answers.
2. Superfluous information is often added to a problem and may cause confusion. Do not highlight the entire problem. Instead, highlight only dates, numbers and other pertinent information. This helps you focus on the real problem and not get distracted by unimportant details.
3. Use good time management - identify the problems you know how to solve and do them first. Once you get the easy ones out of the way, focus on the more difficult questions. If you do them in sequence, you may spend too much time on the more complicated problems and not have enough time to complete the easier questions later.
4. Remember that everything in accounting boils down to the basic accounting equation: Assets = Liabilities + Equity. Understanding this concept will guarantee you achieve better results.

IQ test

The IQ test will assess your logical thinking skills. Logical thinking is your ability to make deductions based on given information and data that lead, rationally, to a certain conclusion.

The test consists of a set of multiple choice questions. The amount of points given for each question is dependent upon their complexity (i.e. more complex problems will be worth more points).

1. Read the questions carefully. An inexperienced test taker may be stressed by the time limit, which can lead to misinterpretations. You may encounter questions that include incorrect answer choices that are deliberately designed to exploit likely misinterpretations of what is being asked, so make sure you carefully read and understand each question.
2. Try to manage your time effectively so that you do not spend too much time on a particular question. Answer the easy questions first so that you’ll have time to complete the difficult ones later.
3. If you aren’t sure about an answer, or it isn’t necessary to calculate the exact answer to a question, you can use the elimination method. Eliminating the answers you know to be incorrect is a great way of saving time and increases your probability of picking the right one. You will not be penalized for guessing.

English test - Essay

An essay is a piece of writing on a topic that presents the author’s personal point of view.

1. How much should you write?

There is no right answer. The important thing is to write as much as you can in the allotted time, but only include what is relevant. Quality is more important than quantity.

2. Essay Format

Introduction
In the introduction, you should offer a short, concise summary of the main points you will be addressing.

Body
The bulk of the essay, both in form and substance, should be contained in the body. List the points that develop the main idea of your essay. Develop each supporting point with facts, details, and examples.

Conclusion
Once you have finished developing your ideas, write your conclusion. This should summarize or restate the main idea. Give your personal opinion or suggest a plan for action. Keep it short and to the point.

Important!
Make sure you answer the question.
The first and most important suggestion is to answer the question. Answering the wrong question is a common mistake many test takers make. Highlight the key words and make sure you understand what the examiner wants; it is highly advisable to refer back to the question throughout your answer.
Make sure you review your essay before submitting it.
Check for spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Delete any sections that are irrelevant.

Be at your best

Getting a job depends greatly on how you present yourself during the interview. It’s not only about your academic background, technical skills, and experience – it’s your attitude. Preparation is the key to a successful interview. The more prepared you are, the more relaxed and confident you will feel, and the better impression you will leave on your interviewers.

What can you expect in the interview? How can you prepare in order to make a good impression? We offer you a number of hints and tips to give you confidence on the big day.

1. Arrive 10 minutes before the interview and turn off your cell phone.
2. Learn as much as you can about EY: who we are, what we do, our strategic direction and our vision for the years ahead.
3. Give honest, direct responses. Stay focused and support your answers with specific and real examples.
4. Spend some time before the interview thinking about your weaknesses and strengths, and what role they play in the job you are applying for.
5. Be ready to answer questions about your future plans.
6. Know yourself. Examine your skills, interests, and goals. Be ready to relate them to the position you are applying for.
7. Prepare your own list of questions to ask.
8. Watch for nervous gestures and refrain from using any slang or other inappropriate language.
9. Dress professionally – wear a professional suit or a formal shirt. Being clean and neat is very important.
10. Stay positive!
