2014 WSO Rankings for Investment Banks: Interviews (Part 3 of 10)

Not all investment banking interviews are created equal. Some of them will leave you feeling like you conquered the world, but most others will have you shaking your head at that one brainteaser or technical question you missed.

After preparing for hours and hours, performing on the big super day stage is no easy task. To make it a little easier, we thought we'd give fair warning and rank the investment banks in the following ways:

1. Top 15 Investment Banks with the HARDEST INTERVIEWS.
2. Top 15 Investment Banks with the EASIEST INTERVIEWS.
3. Top 15 Banks with the BEST OVERALL INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE. In other words, which banks didn’t treat you like used dog food?

These firms are all ranked on a PERCENTILE basis across all 5,000+ companies in the WSO Company Database based on thousands of WSO member rankings. Feel free to share these interview rankings below on your site by copying the html code below the graphic. Stay tuned because next Tuesday we are going to be ranking the investment banks based on promotions and fairness!

Announcing: Winter and Summer 2015 Internships + Training

The New York School of Finance offers internships and analyst training for those looking to get into the investment banking field. In a nutshell, you complete a combined internship and training program, where you work at a boutique bank full-time and complete in-person training on financial modeling.

Outside of an internship at a large bank or investment firm, it's the best way to get a "leg-up" in the recruiting process and make up for work experience you don't have.

You get 8 weeks (or 16 weeks in the full semester version) of the internship and training, which is more than enough time to get some great experience to write about on your resume / CV.

2014 NBA Draft Prospects - Who should go First and some musings from a Celtics Fan

Ok, so admittedly I don't know much about college basketball, but I do love watching my Celtics. While it was tough to deal Pierce and Garnett, the # of draft picks Boston has in the next 5 years and young assets is positioning the team to MAJORLY reload and rebuild into a dominant franchise. Here is the problem, while I get excited that Boston keeps losing and is now tied for the 3rd worst record in the NBA, who the hell to you pick in this draft? I feel like any of the top 3 (Parker, Wiggins, Embiid) are potential gamechangers, with Parker clearly the most "NBA ready" so far.
