    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bank of America.

    Interview Details

    Applied through college career center.
    Phone interview with 3 different people from two different offices.
    Received an offer a few weeks after.

    The people were very kind and engaging.
    They were professional, but a lot easier to talk to than other interviewers I've had.

    The recruiters, those who have contacted me after the offer, are very nice too and they try to be accommodating with deadline extensions, questions, etc. However, they did not allow a full-week deadline extension, which basically compelled me to accept the offer since the other opportunities would not get back to me until later.

    BofA made an offer pretty early on, in late February. And even in March companies are still recruiting, so it makes trying out for others less possible. however, BofA is a good company so I am still grateful.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied the job on our school career website and they contact me for an on campus interview. I met with two recruitors each by half an hour. One recruitor is from U.S Trust and another is from Merril Lynch. U.S trust deals with bigger clients with more than 1 million investable assets and Merril services smaller clients with $100,000 investable fund. It only takes 1 interview for them to finalize their decision and they only hire three for their office during the summer.

    Interview Details

    i Submitted my resume through my school's career services website. I got an offer to go to an recruitment dinner with approximately 20 other students. There we met a few HR reps, and I was invited back to interview. Went over the basics, such as walk me through your resume, personality questions, and fit questions. We did not really go over that many technical questions. The interview was more of a conversation.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bank of America in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was called down to the Merrill Lynch office and I interviewed with the senior VP of the GWIM team there. He asked me a lot about my background, as I grew up in Asia. He wanted to know how international knowledge came into play. He also asked some questions about fixed income and showed me several bond summaries, asking me if I knew what the figures meant (eg. coupon rate, rating, par value, price, corporate/muni, etc.). The interview lasted for about 2 - 3 hours in his office, and we also covered a little on black swan events.
