Investment Banking Internship Interview

Investment Banking Internship
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Toronto in November 2011.

Interview Details – About a week after applying i got an email typed manually by a secretary booking an interview. 5 interviews each 30 - 45 mins back to back.
1 guy asked many technical questions. They all ended with brain teasers and 1 interview was very motivational and behavioral.
People were generally nice except for the same guy who asked many technicals.
I was competing with Harvard LSE Yale grads and they only had room for 1.

Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Toronto in March 2009.

Interview Details – After the initial emails, sent to many primary investigators, I received an email from one of the junior researchers looking for a research assistant to help with a project. The initial email gave me an idea of what the project was about, so I read about it beforehand to have something to say during the interview. Also, during the interview, there were several background questions regarding the material required knowledge for the project, which I was able to answer. Very down-to-earth atmosphere and carefree interview, just to find someone to help them with their project. Overall good process, but should rely less on marks before choosing someone. Perhaps some more weight on previous experience would help.
