    Interview

    It was a campus event. I got invited to a written test. Several weeks later, I was told to go to the first round interview, that's where I failed. There was no HR interview, all questions are technical. The most part is about STAT and machine learning.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BNP Paribas (Paris (France)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Les stagiaires de dernière année ont un premier entretien avec le directeur et d'autres analystes, puis un deuxième avec le responsable des RH au cours duquel ils passent un test de personnalité qui est plus ou moins une formalité. Pour les stagiaires de première année, il n'y a en général qu'un seul entretien contre des séries de quatre ou cinq pour les candidats à un emploi à temps complet.

    For final year interns there is a 1st interview with manager and other analysts, 2nd interview with HR along with a personality test which is more of a formality. For 1st year interns there is usually only one interview and for full time jobs there 4-5 rounds of interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Des questions techniques en lien avec le poste sur la valorisation, les classes d'actifs, le calcul des retours sur investissement etc. Il faut s'attendre à de nombreuses questions sur ses compétences comportementales ou sur son CV, en particulier sur ses   Technical questions related to the job in terms of valuation, asset classes, return calculations etc. Expect lots of behavioral and CV questions with focus on your extra curricular activities.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Pas grand-chose à négocier. La BNP Paribas, c'est ce qu'il y a de mieux en matière de compensation et ils ont différents régimes de compensation en fonction de l'école dont on est issu.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at BNP Paribas (Paris (France)).

    Interview

    J'aimerais dire que c'est une procédure banale d'entretien. J'ai d'abord eu un appel téléphonique, avec des questions basiques que l'on trouve sur la toile. Ensuite, ils m'ont demandé un entretien, au cours duquel j'ai dû expliquer et montrer que je correspondais au poste.

    I d like to say that this is a common interview process, I firstly had a phone call with basic questions that you can find in the web, then, they asked me for an interview where I had to explain and show that I fit to the position
