Interview Details

What did the interview consist of?
Phone Interview
1 on 1 Interview
Please describe the interview / hiring process.
First was a phone screen with HR. Typical "walk me through your resume" questions. Also, asked "why trading?"

Second was a phone interview with a particular quant trading desk (treasury spreads).

No fit there, but was recommended by interviewer. So I was put in touch with the main discretionary trading desk.

Skype interview with two traders from the main desk.

No offer.
