Those looking for graduate finance jobs should make sure they show
employers that they are competent for the role, according to big
four accountancy firm KPMG.

met the success of the candidate comes down to how well they show
they are up to the job in the interviews and assessment
Lesley Winterflood, head of recruitment for the UK at KPMG, said: "People have to
meet the academic criteria, so if they don't meet the economic
criteria then they don't get through to the next round. Once they
get through the application it is all competency-based."
For those companies that concentrate more on CVs, Ms Winterflood
advised graduates to make sure that they are succinct, clear and
The chief executive of the Council for Industry and Higher

are graduate jobs available, but students will have
to stand out from the crowd.
