Next week, I will have interviews with GS and Nomura at Boston Caeer Forum.
First round will be 30 mins and i heard I really have to stand out during the interviews.

Has anyone had interviews at Boston Career Forum?
How did you prepare for the interviews?

I would really appreciate your advice!

I'm going to BCF this year too and have an interview with Nomura (Ops) though.

Do you speak Japanese??

No, I don't speak Japanese. But, I speak other Asian language though.

I interviewed for GS at BCF last year. 30-40 mins, all fit. Walk through resume, why GS, why Securities (which my interview was for), etc...

2nd round was over the phone with HK office.. or was it SG? This was mostly technical.

If you don't speak Japanese, I was told that you will not be considered for the Tokyo office. However, I heard that some "caucasians" that couldn't speak got offers at the Tokyo office. Not sure how true that is though.

did you get an appoitnment set up online on the BCF website? or did you walk-in? and did you end up getting an offer?

I had an appointment set up. I did not get invited for the superday after the second round phone interview. Honestly, as someone without a finance background, I was not even close of being prepared for the technical questions. It was something of an eye-opener for me and I got my act up after that.
