Interview Details

What did the interview consist of?

1 on 1 Interview

Please describe the interview / hiring process.

I applied through on-campus job-posting website. After being selected from the resume-drop alone, I had an on-campus interview. The interview content was mostly behavioral, but it did include my knowledge of options, options trading strategies, knowledge of specific spreads, and my mental math (tested in the form of quick mental math and statistics problems). After the interview, I followed up continually, constantly updating them on my updates throughout the school year. The interviewer had me meet a student on-campus who previously interned there, and the student followed up with her afterward. After about a 2 month process, HR called me with an offer letter and gave me a 2-week timeframe to answer.
