    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at BNP Paribas in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was all fit based. No brainteasers or market questions. The most important part was being able to sell yourself. I interviewed with two guys from Prime Brokerage. To prepare for your interview though, you should still know all your market info, basic math, and obviously your fit answers. The interview depends heavily on the person that is interviewing you (i.e. trader = market questions).
