Sophomore here at a non-target university.
I have a for the Sales & Tradingposition with Securities. I'm surprised that I'm being evaluated so early in the season for the internship.
Apparently, I'll be meeting with 3-6 equities and FICC professionals in 30-min interviews in a 1-on-1 or 2-on-1 format. Theis only 2 hours long.
As a non-business student and only a sophomore in college, I'm most fearful that I'm under prepared for the technical questions. I've been doing a lot of networking, as well as utilizing diversity (LGBT) recruiting, but I'm a bit afraid that my background in finance is too weak right now.
Some things I'm preparing with are:
-why, why securities?
-differences between sales, , and principal investing/finance
-reading WSJ and keeping up with the markets
A few questions:
What should I be studying in preparation?
How many people will be interviewing?
