Expect the three rounds to be split into behaviorals, resume based questions, and technicals (common interview brain teasers). I'd make sure you have your answer down for why pubfin and what is pubfin, and try not to sound too generic. Wouldn't go too deep into bond math, but try to get a high level understanding of how muni bonds are priced (MMD + spread), types of muni bonds (GO vs. revenue), tax-exempt vs taxable, maybe refunding/advanced refunding, and be able to talk about covid trends in diff sectors of pubfin. Hope that helps. Good luck!
