I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Barclays Capital.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Barclays Capital in October 2010.

Interview Details – First I applied using college career website. I got my first interview on campus and they asked what I did and my GPA. They looked at my project that I worked on and what I was interested in. After that they call me in New York branch for 4 interviews. This was just repeating same thing over and over what you do and what do you like about computers. Hardest computer related question I got was what is CPU?

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Barclays Capital.

Interview Details – Since it was on campus it was mostly behavioural questions with two or three technical questions thrown in throughout the process.. This was followed by a phone interview about three days after the interview. They grill on the resume so make sure that ou can explain convincingly on any point mentioned in your resume. Technical questions seem to be from the qualifications on the resume as well

Interview Question – Why did you choose to shift your field   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had a better offer
