IBD Offer After Only Phone Interviews?IB
Do you think it would be feasible for a firm to extend an offer to a summer analyst without face-to-face contact?
Here is the situation: I had a first round phone interview with a middle market bank in NY a few days back. I really liked the two guys with whom I spoke and the structure of the bank; I was later contacted to schedule another phone interview for the latter part of next week with a more senior level member of their team. This guy is also supposed to be responsible for a lot of the office's recruiting. I am curious if it is uncommon for a bank to take on a summer intern without doing an in-person interview; this bank is also by no means an unheard of entity.
Thanks for sharing any insight or personal experiences
