What did the interview consist of?

1 on 1 Interview

Please describe the interview / hiring process.

I know so many young students who come and tell me that they want to be successful investment banking professionals without really knowing why they wanted to be an investment banker in the first place. They get enamored by the high remuneration, fat bonuses and the high fly lifestyle. This is very dangerous according to me. Remember that you have to be able to explain to your interviewer not only why you want to be an investment banking professional but you also need to be able to explain to them which precise responsibilities would interest you the most, what you can exactly identify about the work, and also in which specific work area you are interested in. The more precise you can explain these things to your interviewer, the more resolute and motivated you will come across to them. So be absolutely sure why you want this specific job and be very clear about it.
