    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ.

    Interview Details

    Long and complex. The selection process is pretty stiff and overall presentation matters as much as your knowledge. Confidence is a must and so is ones presence of mind. The ability to adapt and improvise are a big plus. The multiple rounds might seem easy but do not take them lightly. Being honest is good.
