Sophomore Sales and Trading Superday

Hello,

First off, I searched for this topic and haven't found a thread that was exclusively focused on sophomore S&T superdays. There are a few posts, but most are not detailed.

At the sophomore level, what kind of technicals should I expect for an interview at a BB?

People with experience interviewing at the sophomore level for S&T gigs are encouraged to reply, but all are welcome to share their experience!

Thanks in advance.

I interviewed for BB S&T roles my sophomore and junior year (landed one this year but was rejected sophomore year). They are really very similar; know your resume cold, have an opinion on the market/investment ideas, and make it clear you know what S&T entails.

I did an internship at a top BB in their sophomore program. No crazy technical questions, the interview was mostly centered around fit questions as well as views on the market. Had one or two brainteasers. It was what you'd expect, nothing out of the ordinary.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Azzyyyyy, going into the interview, did you read any technical guides (WSO, Vault, etc)?

Just referred to them for fit questions. i had 2 brainteasers (neither of which could be prepared for) and anything technical just had to do with the markets. If you follow the markets, know what's going on in the global economy, and read the news you should be fine. The interview was totally fair game, no unfair questions asked.

Sorry for the barrage of questions, but was your sophomore interview experience similar to what others had when they interviewed for the same BB?

Since you are a sophomore...I would expect the basics: 1) Walk me through your resume 2) Why GS 3) Why securities division. Maybe some basic technicals but I think if you focus on behavioral questions from WSO, BIWS, and even Vault guides...you should be fine. Good luck
