my first interview was on 18th march in both AFF AND KPMG same day!!
i am talking about karachi office.
so anyone who has any info about this plzz share



today was my interview at AFF.U said that ur first interview was on 18th march and 2nd on 8 april.I have heard that AFF responds quickly,perhaps within 10 days of first interview.Was ever1 called so late or ur case was an exception?



Yaar it really depends on AFF when they call u for 2nd interview, although my case was not exceptional many students had to wait so long.
just keep checking ur id online from aff website if ur status is changed from PENDING to RECOMMENDED then u will be definitely called for 2nd interview, and almost 98% of students called for 2nd interview are selected,
so just PRAY and wait.

@faizicapri:Though your reply about pending application form was for somebody else,it indirectly solved my problem so thanks alot.

@aimaad22:AoA!I am about to finally complete the online AFF form inshallah.The references portion has been marked with asterisks meaning that you have to fill it.What did you do when you were applying since you didn't use any reference?Leave it blank or what?Hope you reply soon.Thanks.

References here can mean 2 things. These days people use 'reference' to mean 'sifarish' or 'pawwa'. Alhamdullilah I didnt have to use that. However, actually reference just means reference!! It is used all over the professional world. Its just a contact you give of someone in a position of confidence so the potential employer can double check your credentials. That is what the reference sections means here. You should definitely fill it up. It can be anyone, but the more respectable position the better. For e.g. it could be someone you know who's a professor in a college or a manager at a bank. Something like that.

@aimaad22:Thanks alot for your reply.It reassured me as I had gotten a bit confused between the 2 types.I am finally done with the form though for some reason,extra-curricular activities wouldn't get uploaded.

That's good to hear.I heard somebody say recently that KPMG isb registered the last/current batch after 8 months!Don't know the details so can't really comment but if it's true then it's scarily unfair.

For all those who have applied at E n Y Isb at any point in time:You have to fill a form at their office.Can you bring it to your home,fill it and then send it to office through somebody else or do you really have to be present in FRSH's office yourself and fill it there due to some requirements?It would be so convenient for applicants of other cities like me if we didn't have to come over to the office for form-filling.

My 1st was on 16th.I got call for 2nd on 24 and my 2nd was on 27th.
2nd interview was not very difficult,it was taken by partner.Mainly he was looking at my confidence,personality and attitude.He asked few ques abt personality,some iq ques,some GK and a few technical ques.

In the end he told me that we r inducting u and told abt org policies after induction and told me to report on mon 8:30 at AFF HR dept
