Interview Details

What did the interview consist of?
1 on 1 Interview
Please describe the interview / hiring process.
Interview almost exclusively of fit questions and why specifically the desire to join First New York as opposed to other shops. Met with one trader first, then followed up two weeks later meeting two other traders individually, one after the other. Technical questions were phrased so that you self-rate/self-describe level of knowledge. This format provides the opportunity for you to display knowledge of equities and trading strategies rather than testing your knowledge. Be ready at least to talk about some stocks and why you like/don't like them, their industry and/or current valuation. Was asked what books on trading you've read - be ready to cite at least 5-10 titles and authors.
