Interview

I applied online through the Citi bank careers website and received an email from the recruiter to schedule the initial phone screen in Dec. Soon after the phone screening was done I was scheduled next week to speak with the hiring manager over a zoom interview.
The hiring manager was very informative regarding the role, requirements and what they expected from a candidate. Asked questions relating to my resume and the research I mentioned, also questions on the Probability of default models and programming language. One question she emphasized more was how would I present something very technical to the higher management in a report. The steps and information I would include in the report so that they don't ask you to redo it.

Interview Questions

Why did you choose cfa over frm ?
Explain the probability of default model and expected loss model?
