Interviewing for finance positions is unlike other interviews. Attend this workshop led by Stephanie Hockman (program director for Careers In Business and Finance), Tiffany Shao '19 and other seniors to gain an understanding of the finance interview process. As the recruiting process for internships and full-time positions for summer 2020 will happen starting now, there is no better time to start your preparation process.
The morning session of the workshop (10 - 11:30 a.m.) will discuss techniques for handling video, phone and in-person interviews, how to craft answers to fit/behavior questions and well as how to master the technical finance interview. Learn proven techniques on how to answer questions like “Tell me about yourself,” “Why finance/investment banking/sales & trading?” and “Why XYZ firm?"
The afternoon session (1 - 4 p.m.) will be led by seniors who will cover how to prepare for investment banking technical interviews and questions that are covered in buy side/sales & trading technical interviews such as providing a stock pitch, which are often part of investment banking interviews.
You will receive guidance on how best to practice and some aids to help in your preparation as well as demonstrated responses to mock interview questions. The key to any successful interview is preparation and practice. Don't miss out on this informative workshop.
