At KPMG, we understand that getting to know you goes beyond how you present yourself during networking events and interviews. That’s why we’ve introduced KPMG Ready, our interactive game-based assessment application and a new step in our campus recruitment process.

KPMG Ready provides candidates with an opportunity to showcase their unique strengths by completing interactive, skill-testing challenges accessible through a mobile device or PC. There is no right or wrong way to approach KPMG Ready, as the app provides a fair and objective way for you to demonstrate how you make decisions and choices through a series of activities and challenges.

After completing KPMG Ready you’ll automatically receive a personalized report with detailed insights into your personality and natural strengths that can help shape your personal development.

Do I need to be familiar with mobile games in general to complete KPMG Ready?

No. No special ability, skill or knowledge is required to be able to successfully complete KPMG Ready. The term “game” is just a description of the graphical interface. Each challenge has been carefully designed to be intuitive and easy to navigate. Extensive testing has confirmed no measurable difference in performance between frequent video-gamers and first-time users.

Do I need to practice?

Unlike games designed for entertainment, where familiarity with the game mechanic and layout improves performance, assessments using game technology are designed to capture behaviours and natural tendencies so no need to practice. We do though offer a practice app for those that are interested in checking out what a games- based assessment looks like. If you would like to practice please download Firefly Freedom: Android Download | iOS Download
