Fellow Primates,

As interview season kicks into full swing, we want our WSO members to be as prepared as possible. With the help of experienced finance professionals, Wall Street Oasis has built a selection of guides to help you succeed throughout the job application process. With 11 now available, we have sold THOUSANDS of copies and have received incredible feedback from the community. Read some of the testimonials here.

In 2010 we added new offerings to the library and updated our most popular technical guide to include a sample financial model as well as a flashcard edition allowing you to easily practice the most common interview questions.

Check out the selection of guides, along with testimonials on the guide page.. Good luck in all of your upcoming interviews!

Hey Patrick, is there an affiliate system already in place, or plans to implement one?

With these interview guides, whenever updates get provided, do the users get them for free? or will they have to purchase them separately?

What would you suggest for ER?

I don't know if you want these kinds of comments but I have to say that these guides are extremely worth it. Anyone debating should get them immediately. I'm from a non-target and our career center is clueless; these guides have covered nearly all questions I've received for IB SA interviews so far.

The technical guide has helped me enormously since my school does not offer any finance classes -- really lifesaving. The behavioral guide is essential since it gets you thinking about and practicing how to best present yourself as the right fit with a firm.

this is probably getting deleted, but I'll post it anyways. I liked the IB and PE guides, but the HF one was extremely bad and has no useful information whatsoever. Only explains on a high level what the different strategies are, but gives no information at all in terms of what to prepare for in terms of interviews, how to target funds, best headhunters etc..

hey futuramo - we don't delete criticism, we try to fix it. The HF guide is really just an overview of the industry like the description says...it is not focused on interviews and is really an overview to give someone an idea of the different options out there. Just like the PE guide is also not an interview guide -- it is focused on how to best position yourself to break into the industry. There is nothing wrong with that criticism...the Technical Guide and Behavioral guide are much more focused on prepping for the interviews...

Wow, if you had done a search you would know that people have already posted topics about the WSO guides, gosh.

the IB technicals guides are solid. highly rec

The technical guide beats the hell out of Vault--the same information in half the pages. I'm a non-finance major and just had several interviews and the guide really helped me take it to the next level.

The behavioral guide and the technical guide were all I needed. Less than half the price of Wall Street Prep too. (every dollar counts when you are eating top ramen!!!!)

Jan 19, 2011

Both guides are very good, worth the investment. Many Frieda have used them to great success.

The truth is that key interview questions get recycled year-in, year-out. Being armed with answers to all the common interview questions can be the difference between an offer and a rejection.

Can we purchase the guides from overseas? I get a message saying "this offer is not available in your area" once I select "France" on the payment page?

Jan 24, 2011

i wish wetfeet and vault were money-back.

I believe that the technical and behavioral guide helped me land my FT offer. They are both worth the investment

It's all about knowing the 5,000 or so (it seems) Excel short cuts...

So people are still getting placed in this environment? I am deciding whether its worth the chase of continuing to try and get a job in finance or just switching my career path to Health Care or Technology. I personally see health care coming in the forefront of the economy in the next few years and be it that Hospital CEO's make between 300k -2MM, i am thinking it may be worth it.

But the question is: Are people still landing the jobs?

Jan 27, 2011

... How do you plan on becoming a Hospital's CEO?

Jan 27, 2011

I recommend the behavioral interview guide, even if you're interviewing outside of finance. I bought one and it's helped me prepare for my finance and non-finance interviews alike.

Ibdafuture I hope you're in medical school and plan on getting a top notch residency otherwise its a pipedream

Most hospital CEO's don't have MD's, although a lot of them at big name hospitals do.

Fair point. I was referring to teaching hospitals more so than smaller places which was a mistake as there are far more small hospitals than teaching hospitals.
