Hi ben, I did an internship at EY in corporate restructure last summer and have been offered a job starting 2006. To answer your questions, 1) Key skills and competencies you can find on the website of any of the big 4 firms, but they are generally things like leadership, team player, strong interpersonal skills etc. 2) Im not sure if you already know this, because i certainly didnt when i applied, but CR is all about Insolvency. Basically when a company is failing, and is unable to repay its loans to its mortgage provider, the mortgage provider is within its rights to appoint an 'administrator' which effectively swoop in and run the failing business, making cuts, redundancies and then either make the company more profitable, sell it, or liquidate it, so the bank can get its loan back. So a graduate would basically be a cog in this process by controlling access to the company site, or making calls to unsecured creditors (ie ppl who are unlikely to get their money back off the destressed company) and advise them of the situation. Also a graduate may do stock counts (look up 'rentention of title'). 3) Tricky questions may include ' give an example of when you worked as a team which was unsuccessful' or 'what distinguishes EY from the other big 3'. I hope this helps mate, and good luck. from roosh.
