Summer Analyst Interview

Summer Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in February 2012.

Interview Details – Very informative as to what they expect and want to hear from MSSB's candidates. Held pre interview sessions that really helped alot. During the interview, the person wanted to get to know us and understand what it is that led us to Finance. Did not get to move on to the superday, but definitely learned from the entire process. Helped me in the long run to understand what employers really expect and want to see in you. Apply to as many places as you can, and attend as many interviews as given. Even if you do not think that you will get the job, the experience is indeed very valuable.

The process took a day - interviewed at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in September 2011.

Interview Details – Interview was held with a panel (3 people) and in addition to myself, my competitor for the position as well.
