    The HR arrange a competence ability interview with me. I choose to take the phone in US night, when it is daytime in Asia. I prepared a lot of behaviors question, but still be challenged by asked behaviors questions.
    For example, why you choose Financial career in such bad market? What is your great opportunity cost?

    Interview Details

    Met Barclays Capital at the Boston Career forum applying for a job in Japan. Went to the Barclays Capital booth, presented my resume and was given 2 interviews on the spot. One in Japanese with senior equity research managment and one in english with a research associate. The next day I was contacted again and invited out to dinner with members of the US equity reseach team. Offer for the job came the next day. Barcap employees seemed very nice and I was impressed by their growth strategy.
