    Equity Research Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Fidelity Investments in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my school's career services website. Was selected for a first round interview. The interview was going fairly smoothly, mostly soft stuff about my background, until I referenced my personal investment experience. At that point, the interviewer seemed to perk up and started asking me some fairly difficult and technical questions about the stock purchases I had made, and my "investment thesis" for each. Extremely competitive for second round interviews and I was not one of the lucky few

    Interview Questions
