How my visa affected the recruitment process

My employer sponsors my visa (Tier 2 General). As KPMG is a large firm, they apply for the visa on behalf of the employee. That meant that the process was relatively simple for me, I just had to provide my documents and they took care of everything else. Overall, it took about 5 weeks.

My career
