MBA graduates in demand
KPMG focusing on experienced graduates
MBA graduates are top of the list of new US recruits for Big Four firm KPMG,
according to its national director for experienced hire recruiting, Cheryl Levy.
Levy told BusinessWeek.com that KPMG was attractive to MBAs graduates because
it is a large organization with larger clients.
’We’ve been doing MBA recruiting as a huge push for about three years now,
and the interest in MBAs has increased now that of some [divisions] that were
questioning how they could use MBA grads have seen their success in other
practices,’ Levy explained.
Levy said the goal for this year was 120 MBA graduates, double the number
hired last year.
The firm has also started offering internships to MBAs graduates followed by
a full-time position once they finish with their program.
