 Detailed Walkthrough
 Finding the Companions
There are two locations you can initiate the quest. You might find a few of the companions near Pelagia Farm fighting a giant. If you help them they'll direct you to talk to their leader, Kodlak in Whiterun.
Alternatively if you're in Whiterun talking to most of the citizens will give you insight into the Companions and potentially adds a marker to your map leading you to Jorrvaskr.
Speaking with any of the members of the Companions will give you an option to ask who's in charge, again pointing you towards talking with Kodlak. You can find Kodlak in the sleeping quarters located one floor down and in the northen rooms talking with Vilkas.
After speaking with Kodlak you'll be asked to be tested by Vilkas. You'll be lead outside where you'll have a brief match. If you want to use Magic, you'll need to use bound weapon against Vilkas to work - Example
 Errand Runner
Once you have proven yourself you'll be asked to stop and you'll be given your first task. You'll be asked to sharpen Vilkas' sword for him by taking it to Eorlund Gray-Mane. You can find Eorlund just up the stairs from your currect location behind Jorrvaskr.
Once you've given Vilkas' sword over you'll be asked to run an errand for a busy Eorlund by returning a shield to Aela, whom you can find inside of Jorrvaskr. Once you return her shield she'll summon Farkas whom will show you to your quarters and offer you the quest Trouble in Skyrim, however at this point you have a few Radiant Quest options available to you from other Companions so you may choose to ignore this, however you must complete one of these quests before progressing with the Companions quest line.
