Intern Interview

Intern
Charleston, SC

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Automated Trading Desk LLC in April 2011.

Interview Details – I was asked a series of basic Interview questions for an Intern position. It began with simple personality related questions such as why do you go to the school you go to. They also asked about the company itself. Typical questions that are asked in the beginning of interviews. This was then followed by questions relating to finance, such as describe the relationship of bonds and interest rates and why this is the case. They concluded the interview with quick intellect questions, one example being you have two coins, what is the chance that they both land on heads. The answer varied based on if the coin flips were dependent on each other or not.
