I have an upcoming Super Day interview with a Bulge Bracket firm for their Institutional Equity Sales division.

What should I expect during the final interview process? How technical are the questions, what are they looking for etc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Sales would usually be less technical but I've seen candidates get asked stock pitches. Someone got asked to pitch three books.

    Your new, but I can tell you that no one will answer this question because you need to do a search. The Superday is just like any interview, except there are more of them in a row.

    I would also like to know this.

    Also, what exactly is investment banking?

    So what kind of questions should I expect in a Institutional Equity Sales internship. I'm a political science major, and have a basic understanding of the markets. I think they appreciate my interpersonal skills more than anything.

    If you're going for an interview any time in the foreseeable future, you're going to get fucked.... Royally.

    So what do you think of the Ireland situation? How does it bode for the markets?

    Give me an example of a time when you had to prioritize many different things at once and how you handled it.

    How do you handle rejection?

    Thank you trade4size.

    It seems as though some people say without knowing, nevertheless, I would imagine that the interview process is far more behavioral and fit than quantitative and brain teasers. Is this correct?

    It is sales after all.
