Please describe the interview / hiring process.

First round interview: More behavioral, some technicals like DCF and accounting and stuff. Since I had a previous buy-side experience, had to pitch a stock. Second-round: All technical and was very picky about my investment rationales behind some of the equities I have traded in and out. Wasn't too friendly. Didn't get an offer (but then, on the website they weren't considering internationals anyways)
