What's Up People,

I recently landed a first round for a FT ECM analyst role at a BB. I have just graduated from college and the offer I had taken upon graduation was retracted due to COVID, so through heavy networking and a long waiting process, I finally landed this interview and want nothing more than to crush it.

I've prepared for IB interviews before, I even had a DCM super day, so I have a good grasp of accounting/behavioral/traditional valuation questions, but is there anything else I can set my sights on? Market trends, indices and opinions on both are all good, but stock pitch, pricing convertibles, derivatives etc. as well?

Looking for guidance and anything you may offer is much appreciated.

Have a good understanding of why a company would issue equity vs debt. Be well versed in the markets. Understand that your job will be far more process oriented than analytical.
