I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Barclays Capital in January 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview is given by a lady from the department (V.P), asked about your strengths and weaknesses and some of the previous experiences you have from working as a team.

After passing the phone interview, move to a AC day with 3 different rounds. One of it was a one to two (v.p) interview asking about your previous experiences and how you feel you can aid the firm, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years and why are you so sure this i what you want. Another round was a teamwork game where you have to work in a group and solve a puzzle (learn to be a facilitator) and last but not least a interview with another 2 v.p.s to discuss prioritisation of a list of things to do.

Interview Question – What makes you so sure this is what you want?   Answer Question
