Hardest Technicals [Diversity]?

Curent diversity student looking to pursue an investment banking summer internship for next summer (2024). What are the hardest questions I'll be asked. Struggling to get through accounting right now so Im nervous what else some of the elite boutiques will ask. Any diversity kids lend a helping hand and share some hard questions? Really interested in restructuring by the way. Thanks

nauseating post

 

Heard they might even ask what is the name of their bank

 

Top EB’s will ask candidates the same thing - they don’t go easy on diversity. Know the guides inside out like everyone else. Good luck!

 
Funniest

If you start to get a sense that the questions are too hard, double check with the interviewer to make sure they have the diversity questions

 

Good advice - in my interview at an EB (diversity), the interviewer pulled out a really thick packet of questions, flipped to a random page, and read off a 3 minute long paper LBO prompt. After asking if I was in the right interview, the interviewer apologized profusely and pulled out a much less intimidating stack of papers with images of various objects and a list of words (dog, house, tree) and I was asked to draw lines connecting the words to the pictures. I got most of them right and the interviewer put a golden star sticker on my paper after I was finished

 

You will not get an offer if your technicals aren't solid.

And let's say you do, you won't survive your summer stint. I can promise you that.

 

Prepare as if you aren't diversity, then you will either 1) be prepared for normal questions or 2) be able to slam dunk "what is COGS?"

 

Lmao. Good troll recognition, but why are you blatantly ignoring the fact that many people above fell for the bait?

 

Are u jealous of my “VP relationship” post and start posting trolling things?

 

You should reexamine your motivations for entering into investment banking if you're struggling with accounting. You do realize that the companies that end up in restructuring typically get there because of one of a basket of only very few reasons, none of which are friendly to an analyst who's struggling to get through accounting, right?

If you're still keen on IB for whatever reason and want to extend your career longevity, perhaps investment grade DCM is the way to go (or, when IPO markets come back, ECM). Significantly less analysis and accounting related work there.
