Please describe the interview / hiring process.
This was an assessment centre at the end of a spring week, for the summer analyst position the following year. The first task was a group case study, with 2 other candidates - we were tasked with choosing venture capitalist and investors to target for a hypothetical challenger bank. I performed fairly well in this task. The second task was a written task. Essentially, I had to read a brief on the challenges facing an internet-based bank and was tasked to come up with recommendations to solve their problems based on what I read. I found this challenging due to time constraints. The third task was a mock client meeting. I was tasked to meet a hypothetical social media influencer who just recently acquired some wealth, build a relationship with them and gauge their financial situation in order to come up with recommendations. This was one of my favourite sections, as relationship management really interests me The final section was a 1 on 1 competency-based interview. It was not too challenging as I had prepared before hand.
