1 on 1 Interview
Please describe the interview / hiring process.
It took around two months after I submitted my application to receive feedback from HR in London Office, who told me to interview with a fund manager on Zoom. I think the HR was going to call me but it didn't work out probably because of the time zone difference. That might be the reason why I skipped the HR in and went directly to the final round interview, which really got my ass kicked. fyi, my resume is underqualified for this position in any sense, be it GPA, track record and knowledge. The only possible explanation of why I had the interview offer would be my trading track record and (not so likely) because I go to a target school.
