So I got this question during one of my first rounds with a.
The situation was like this:
Suppose you are a SA in the . On Tuesday you are given a pitch book to be completed next Monday. And two days later you receive another project to work on. That project is also due next Monday.
The question was "how would you handle those two tasks?"
My interviewer suggested that both tasks are top priorities and are given by different MDs. So there's no way to refuse IMO.
I answered that I would be reaching out for help from other SAs/analysts but the interviewer seemed dissatisfied. He demanded more answers.
I asked one of my friends in banking. He said:"Your answer is correct. Another option would be busting your ass and pushing your limit. Could not think of any other ways."
Are these the only ways then?
