Very Easy Interview

Quant Developer Interview

Quant Developer
London, England (UK)

I applied online and interviewed at Knight Capital.

Interview Details – Not the best of HR personnel they have. HR generally reject resumes on a whim on Friday evenings. Yes everybody sends generic emails of rejection, which is fine, but back to back for different roles which you had applied in a minute more or less points to incometency and doesn't reflect the strength or weakness of your resume.
