    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Aberdeen Asset Management in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through email and received an response a week later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview, done by an HR assistant, was short and sweet- they just wanted to get more information regarding my background. Was asked to come in for an interview three days later.

    Two interviews: one with a Senior Manager, another with a HR Representative. He asked questions pertaining to the job and my qualifications, my hobbies and what I thought I could bring to the table. She didn't really ask anything, we just chatted. This was on a Monday.

    On Wednesday they sent an email letting me know that I was no longer being considered. I responded to thank them for their time, and to ask for feedback. No response.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Aberdeen Asset Management in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly quick. It consisted of one group interview with two managers and an HR representative. It is very behavioral based. The company culture is more about fit than technical skills because it is a very social place.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were pretty textbook, I get the feeling they are the sort that care more about interests than your particular skills set or background since you will learn it all on the job.   Answer Question

It was a very laid back interview in which they wanted to know about my typical week and what activities/ societies I kept up with as well as any market info I had which might after Aberdeen's business.

    Interview Questions

    Interview Details

    Applied online and then was invited to a face-to-face interview with an investment professional and a member of HR. Relatively competency-based, nothing technical but a little bit about the operations of the company itself - not trying to catch you out. After this 30min interview an offer was made to join the internship programme.
