I am a junior undergraduate student and I have a first-round, 30-minute phone interview with a private equity firm tomorrow. I have no prior banking/consulting internship and have little-to-no technical knowledge of finance outside of a basic understanding of how PE business models and transactions work. I have no idea how I got selected for a first-round interview, yet, here we are!
My game plan so far is to refresh myself on PE business models/transactions, do basic online firm research, practice common behaviorals, and prepare my questions. I would also like to learn as much finance as I can by tomorrow, but I understand how little time I really have.
Would anybody be able to give me a brief run-down of what to expect in the interview as well as any resources I might use in the next day to prepare? Any help would be very much appreciated.
